    It's frustrating when there's some project I need to be working on and my wife says something like, "Why do you need to work on that? It's not broken yet!" She absolutely doesn't understand the principle of preventitive maintenance. What's more, I'm researching all this stuff to learn to fix it myseslf and then spend a LOT of time shopping for parts all so I can save money by doing it myself.... I'll get off my soapbox. That's a whole 'nother topic.

    For now, I need to figure out how to get the new boat. Sailabration is working on quote. Based on discussion yesterday, I don't think we're going to come to terms on pricing, so this is probably a waste of time.

    Thinking about boats is never a waste of time.
