If you want to feel better about the cost of a boat, buy a plane first. A boat will seem cheap in comparison. :lol:

Same story here, except my wife loved racing.
It was the expense she didn't like so much, but that was an easy sell because she didn't want to see the kids noncompetitive on the track. :woohoo:

After getting the bill for a week's stay in Hawaii, I know what we spent would have bought us a lot of diesel fuel! Everything costs money and vacations...wow. It was wonderful, but all overwith in 7 days. It makes me appreciate all of the time we spend out on our boat and I would rather spend the money there than going on a beach vacation.
