All your boat expenses, boat maintenance

with that thing you just can't fix...gone!
that really need to be replaced...gone!
That scratch/crack you put in the hull
last year when you hit the dock
The soft spot in the deck
you try to ignore...gone!
That bent stanchion post...gone!
Stinky holding tank
Tiny leak in the pressure water
that fried your laptop
gremlin and dead batteries...gone!
pump that needs to be rebuilt...gone!
That drip right over my bunk every time it rains...gone!
Very expensive electronics
that sometimes just don't work...gone!
that wouldn't furl that one time you really needed it to furl...gone!
That bulkhead with bits of your head/hair embossed in it from hitting it so many times...gone!
The split pin that cuts your foot every time you go forward on a windy day...gone!
The bill from the mechanic/marina/boatyard/sailmaker/rigger/electrician that comes in 5x more than you expected...gone!
And I get a bucket of cash money
...how can that not be a great day!
