Congrats, that is a nice looking houseboat.
It is okay to go over to the Dark Side....temporarily.
After my wife and I retire we plan on buying
a good sized sail boat so we can take off cruising, but in the meantime we have a smallish ski boat which we can trailer almost anywhere. We can go to a distant lake over the weekend or when we have time off from work. Since it is fast, we can travel great distances in one day. If we were to buy a sailboat we would be limited to the San Francisco
Bay and Delta
, since we have to be back to work on most Mondays. And no, I don't want a trailerable sail boat. Been there, done that. She is a girly girl and likes to be somewhat comfortable and so do I as I get older. In my 20's I used to find spending all day in a wet suit blasting around the SF Bay
on a Hobie not all that uncomfortable and I know she would NEVER go for that.
So with the trailerable stink pot, my wife and I get to travel to bodies of water
and get to see things that we would not ordinarily get to see.
