We sold our boat
« on: March 22, 2019, 09:35:10 AM »
My husband re-injured his back quite badly and we realized boat life was too strenuous.  The sale went quick and easy, it was only on the market for a week.  We broke even on it, but we had a home for almost 2 years, so we are happy with it.  No regrets, I’m glad we got to experience it.

Awww, I'm bummed that our UK Yankee Boat is no more!  But glad it was quick and easy for you.  Enjoy land life!

Aww, I'm so sorry that had to happen.  But at least you found your house and got moved in before he was injured.  And breaking even on the sale means you had free accommodation for two years!  Good going.

I'm sorry to hear you had to sell it, but I'm glad you have your new home! I hope your husband's back heals as well as possible.

You broke even on a boat!!!??

I just hope that more people will ignore the fatalism of the argument that we are beyond repair. We are not beyond repair. We are never beyond repair. - AOC

The improvements we made were huge.  We poured money into but got it back.
