Are you kidding? No one on this thread has even talked about sailing. We've talked about a boat in progress that isn't being used. Sailing never came up.
As far as the boystuff, these are real concerns that impact a bunch of people. The number of older men
who have told me they'd wished they'd done what I did (take off in the twenties and sail around a bit before committing to marriage, careers) is very high.
Mid-courtship/past marriage the balance of these desires will play a crucial role in the happiness of both partners.
Anyways, the last few dating conversations I've had have gone like this: "you just took off and went sailing?! That's so cool, I wish I could do that" followed by, "so, you're done now though, right? Like, forever?"
