Re: Does anyone here ever feel underboated?
Mickey, don't give up hope. I was exactly like you, going through one boat after another, building them, trying them out and then selling them again as fast as I could, one after another, after another, after another. . .
But then a bizarre thing happened after I had completed Rowan, my 42nd boat at the time. . . .
After I had spent a month or two shaking her down and getting her all squared away, I had this uncanny sensation of. . .well. . . .contentment, I guess. I actually wasn't planning her replacement while out sailing in her--a brand new and mysterious sentiment for me. Somehow, I'd actually narrowed it down to the point where I really had hit the bullseye on my personal slate of prejudice and preference.
Now I'm not necessarily saying that Rowan would be the perfect boat for you as well--after all, there are so many different types of boat and different types of people who use them. And I'm not saying that you will ever find the one boat that can fulfill all of your spiritual needs--not any more than your wife whom you love dearly can always replace the times when you need to hang with your buddies instead. But what I am saying is that you shouldn't give up hope because it just might turn out that your boatly soul mate actually exists after all.
Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
