Economy was good when i boat my boat. Took it out a couple of times and then decided to fix the TLC things that I knew about. Economy started going downhill for me so the boat went into storage 2 or 3 years ago. Now its back at my home and i am slowly working on it. Luckily I have a 2nd boat to use if I need too, but it only made it out once last year. Just hang in there and do the work when you have time. I do enjoy getting into the boat and doing a few things, just wish I had a shop to work in...by taking my time it allows me to find better deals for the parts I need or want.
