I've had fishing/sailing boats all my life. When I retired(young), I sold my 28' Glacier Bay (best fishing/diving boat made IMO) intending to buy a 'full time' boat. However, a strange thing happened after I sold my boat....No more stress! No more flat tires, no more bad bait pumps, no more me planning everything, no more 180 gallons of fuel, no more all the shit that goes with owning a boat. I feel your pain. Now, I'm trying the Sport Boat thing...lets see how it goes.
