I had a long talk at the campground with a guy who sails a small boat on the Great Lakes. He makes his way from Michigan to Canada, where he spends a good part of the summer. The old guy had some great photos. Unfortunately, he's got some physical problems and might have to give up sailing. He suggested that he'd be interested in selling the boat to me.
I consider it a 50/50 sort of thing. Frankly, I hope his health holds out and he can keep sailing for many more years. It's one of the things that truly brings joy to his life.
For me, the most important revelation was that my lovely wife didn't even blink when the idea of buying the boat came up. I think it's because the boat is of a style and condition that she really likes. If that boat doesn't come on the market, it's not big deal. There are plenty more out there just like them.
She's lined up a lot of house projects for the spring and summer. I must admit that most them are long overdue. However, I know we can work buying another boat into the budget somehow.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
