Now on the brighter side it does treat me very well financially. I absolutely love running boats and being on the water. So there is definitely a love/hate thing.

My license upgrade I'm working on will raise my pay enough that hopefully I will get on a 14-14

And get you that new 42 you want

Yeah. Seems I was misinformed. I remember when I heard it first a few years ago I didn't believe it and research showed it was. Things change. Lol or by a different metric.
