[QUOTE=cabo_sailor;634550]My boat has a ton of teak
both inside and out and yes it is a lot of work to keep it looking the way I like. Not to mention all the other things that constantly need attention. For me, its therapeutic, a day of putzing about is very relaxing. I also admit to enjoying the compliments from people on the dock
. Over the years I've not only learned the proper techniques but the little things that reduce the time needed. If you enjoy it, then what's the problem?
I'll go along with the others and suggest a serious case of envy from your so-called "friend". For one thing I can't see a true friend telling you such a line in the first place, even if he believed it. I mean come on, what's he expect you to do? "OH, you're right! I'll sell it right now!"
Enjoy your new pride and joy.
I love wood, the looks and feel...I would not go out and chop a few trees just to build a boat to pleas me...but this baby has alredy been built many years ago...so id rather be the one to take care of her and make sure she retains all her glory...as for my friend I dont know what to make of this, he hasent reteurned my emails...maybe it is about jelousy or envy??
however the thruth is this boat has been in a storm and needs some refit
and lots of TLC...time and elbow
greas I have plenty...money not so...but iv never been the kind of guy to wast it away on futilities like drugs or any other adictions...I am the lonely type whod rather stay aboard fixing things then going out and party...of coars I like to party in due time.
we cant judge my friends reaction...it belongs to him and one day he will bring it up when hes ready.
Iv shown my boats best side...hear are some not so glorious photos...as I said shes a project
...keep in mind it looks worst then it really is.
