I eschewed the boating life in Australia for an extended motorcycle tour in Asia. One is usually drawn back in. It's like a failed divorce. You know? The one where you have to keep going back for just one last stoush. The bike goes in a few weeks, I get on the big silver bird, fly from Chiang Mai to Osaka, Los Angeles, Phoenix and then to Mexico to remarry with the life of the ocean gypsy.
T'ain't nuthin wrong...It's the salt in your veins which needs a top up. Don't fight it. And, at the moment, boats in the US are still, relatively speaking, dirt cheap. There will always be some sort of positive consequence when someone crashes an economy.
Buy and be happy!
Best of luck.
