  •  Don't Get Me Started On Boats (3+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Recreational boats really are just holes in the water into which the owner can throw literally "boat-loads" of cash.  I worked with a senior colleague in MD many years ago.  He kept a boat over in Annapolis.  Every weekend over the summer he'd regale me with tales about how he was "investing" another $500 in his vessel (and that amount would represent about $4000 today).  The only time it stopped was when he had to put the boat into winter storage.  And, he had a sailing boat.  The guys who own "stinkers" with their gasoline or diesel engines get about 2 gallons to the mile, which means a 50 gallon tank of fuel good for a days outing on the water will set you back about $200 while you'll be lucky to be able to cruise across the bay and back.  My spouse has standing instructions that if I ever start seriously arguing for a boat, she's to put me down because it's "time."
