I’m in dutch with the wife.
After spending more hours and dollars than might be considered wise on getting my most recent maritime project up and running, I did what any normal member of the schizophrenic community would do and purchased another boat over the weekend. Same year and model as the other one but with a flybridge, and in quite a bit better cosmetic condition. Somehow, in the clear light of this Monday morning, I find myself in possession of one boat that looks bad and runs good, one that runs bad but looks good, and a very pissed off spouse.
If anyone has any tips on how I can convince her that this decision was arrived at through a logical and reasonable weighing of cost vs benefit, I’d sure appreciate it as sleeping on the couch is wrecking my back.
