Two reasons I didn't approach you about it-damn, @Ajax I wish you had told me that - I would have sold her to you for a song.
1. Wife was very resistant. (I mean really, it's not a normal lifestyle. I'm not mad at her.)
2. I didn't think that you would give me any special consideration on the price (and why should you?) I figured that even with the proceeds from the house and all of my belongings that I wouldn't be able to afford the boat AND the upkeep.
Sadly, that has changed now. My wife doesn't *quite* think I'm crazy anymore and I have bucketloads more equity in the house to draw on. The timing stinks.
The good news is that my wife sat down next to me last night and without any prompting by me, said "I promise that we'll get out there soon."
