Question Dollar per hour of use

In light of people takling about trailer queens, how about the next worse thing

Those of us that pay for our boats and nevre if hardly use them.

Need to include hte following
Monthly payment
Insurance
Storage
Gas, that is going bad sitting for so long
Slip, is so lucky to have one
License fees
Breakdowns, sometimes the reason why they sit for so long
This amount added up for the entire year, divided by the number of hours logged on your meters.

Mine comes out to be just over $2510.00 PER HOUR

Your a masochists.
I start to twitch even thinking about, thinking about it.
A while back I categorized all my expenses in Quicken to figure out where all my money was going. The pie chart was basically one color, that was the last time I ever used the program or pondered where the money goes.

Some of you guys are making my Baja look good here Just under $200 an hour. Of course it helped I get 80 hours in this year. I definitely don't want to share that number with the wife the next time I suggest we take a boat ride to get lunch
