Default Boating is much too stressful

First there is looking for a boat

Then there is waiting for the boker to send information

Next waiting to see if they accept the offer

Now waiting to see if it passes the survey

Next I'll have to wait for the ice to melt to actually get to use it.

This is killing me. I think I need to take a day off and go boating (but can't, see "ice" above).

There just has to be a less stressful hobby.

The stress has'nt begun yet ...

Wait 'till you have to get someone to do work for you that you can't do yourself..... It won't take long to figure out why they keep vaseline in their toolboxes

That I've never had trouble with. Always hire the best to start with.

It probably helps when you have a lot more choice in service providers too.
I frequently think that "pleasureboating" is just another cruel oxymoron...
Am dealing with an idiot right now who's trying to grease me up ... stress is'nt the word !
