But it gets mad at you for no reason, throws fits seemingly randomly, has unexplained issues which somehow solve themselves only after you try a bunch of different parts and spend a bunch of money to solve it...and yet you can't resist getting in it every chance you can.

Like a bi-polar chick that dances for a living, just sucking the money right out of me, but I give without hesitation, to that nutty b*tch.

Then, if something is wrong with the boat, it becomes my FIRST priority in life! Its all I think about until its solved/fixed. I would say, Im obsessed, and it takes ALOT out of me....but I cant stop!!!!

It is like having a wife who is a bi-polar, psychotic, nymphomaniac Victoria Secret lingerie model, in a drug rehab program, with multiple personalities, that you happen to fall in love with.

I will say that this hobby definitely changes your perspective on money. Now everything that I pay for in other aspects of my life seems like a freaking DEAL. I've been messing around with cars my whole life and I used to think that $5k for the service on a Ferrari was a rip-off. $1,100 fuel fill-ups will change your state of mind.

Also, I used to think it was a pain in the ass to detail a car. After obsessively detailing my boat for a few years I can detail a car in my sleep!

Sorry about the momentary lapse of reason thinking about expenses and boats. Silly me. You just snapped me out of it CT.
