Leech on society and a slacker. Boy you are gonna draw some criticism from certain people. You are probably one of those rich resource drains as well.

I reckon you outta donate your retirement to charity, get an unlaunchable $1,000 boat and live on it under a bridge...

You're setting the bar way too low. I'm wanting to be part of the 1%.

I often taunt an ex sailboat owner I know who sold his sailboat gave up his mooring bought a big power boat that pretty much just sits at the dock these days. I tell him that's an expensive beach chair he owns because that's pretty much all he does on it.

Yep, I've seen that happen a few times too in my boatyard while I was working on my boat before launching. Something about the smile on a boat bimbo's face as she leaves that's kind of cute. In a cat ate the canary kind of way. They always seem to be leaving only from powerboats though.

There's a thought...suppose I can get a tax break for that?

I found the boat you're talking about, now it's just a matter of evicting the sea lions.

Well, that's just my observation. Let's just say your chances might be better on one.

If you want to get laid by a gold digging secratary, yes. If you like real ladies instead of ones covered with makeup and pantyhose, a sailboat is a much better bet.

35 yrs old dreaming of circumnavigate with my wife and two kids. No money at this moment. No experience on a sailboat, just motor....
Does that make me a wannabe?

Am in Spain right now looking for a solution to manifest our dream. We gave up everything bought an RV and are driving around the meds looking in every marina to find a live aboard and get closer to our dream.
Does that make me a nut?

Maybe...

But eventually, she will be there. A Formosa or a Belliure..... 41'to 43'....center cockpit.....3 cabin layout.....full keel....&hellip;.............hmmmmmm
