Hi my name is Mike and I own a boat.

I know, I have tried to quit, but I'm in love and thinking of buying an IP 40. Advice please.

There was a 12 step group for this on another forum, but all seem to have gone sailing.

You have come to the wrong place for a cure. Nothing but a bunch of boat junkies here.

Perhaps if you share the story of your downward spiral it may inspire others who are also suffering.

I vote this "Best Opening Line for a First Post."

Welcome aboard.

No advice, we've got two boats.

...Not a boat junkie! I just enjoy being on the water, and getting to where I want at a higher speed.
