Nantai 37 Aft Cockpit - Girlfriend Had Enough ...

With reluctance and only having had the boat a short while I am selling her. It was her or the girlfriend and I think I can get more for the boat....
Asking $39,000 as many additions, including dinghy, new outboard, diving compressor, portable Honda EUI 2000i generator etc.
If you're interested email me at smalldiveshop@gmail.com and I will forward, full listing and pictures.
Thanks for looking

LOL BIG Mistake !!never saw a girlfriend who wants you to sell your boat that was worth keeping !! Only a few good boats and lots of women that would LOVE to sail !! Think about it !! Just OUR 2 cents That means Connie and I !! ew have been sailing together 30 yrs !! Bob and Connie

Love is about compromise. Tell her that and that one thing she needs to compromise on is the boat!

Big Mistake! Get rid of her and be a free Man! My lady already knows who gets deep six'd if ever the question comes up. Chances are she will dump you after you sell your boat anyway for not standing up for yourself.

Re: Nantai 37 Aft Cockpit - girlfriend had enough.....

With all due respect to your situation, which may have its roots in issues beyond living on the boat, have you asked her why it has come to this fairly inconvenient choice? Usually, the partner who feels the least comfortable in the boat life has the lesser amount of experience, and this makes things nervous for them, relying on the more "seamanlike" partner.

And that you are willing to compromise…….

Have you tried selling the GF? If you can get more for the boat, then the GF must be cheap.

I guess it depends on the sailor as to how much pleasure one can get out of one or the other.

BTW don't get mad, we feel your pain and we're trying to cheer you up.

You're probably not factoring in the running costs of each......

I am guessing that he never found the right woman ......and to come up with a view like that probably plenty of wrong uns' .
