To my credit, I hope, I've expressed interest in my few communications

Co-purchaser... it's something I've kept out of this discussion in an effort to keep the discussion anchored to the boat and not the entire buying
situation. My good friend of many years will be contributing to the purchase
and upkeep of the boat, gaining equity in the boat that she will recoup if/when sold or if/when I buy her out of her share. She has no sailing experience nor does she have much interest in gaining any outside of the basics (for now). We're doing it properly, with a written agreement, many discussions, etc...
