tough choice: Airstream or sailboat

I am an avid sailor and love boats. Having said that I also love my '65 Globetrotter that I have made to feel like a sailboat inside. It is featured in the latest issue of Airstream Life. You can rent a sailboat and have all the pleasure without all the upkeep and slip fees. You can't do that with an AS. I would not trade my AS for any "hole in the water". I hope that this might help you. Kenny

I have a number of friends who believe this is absolutely the way to go.

They're members of OMYC -- other man's yacht club.

Airstream or Sailboat,
Either, Both, one or none, it's whatever you can or want to make it.
I once read on a table mat in Banff Ab. Canada
"man is richest whose pleasures are the cheapest"
We're very adaptable creatures us humans. Good luck to all endeavors
To Craftsman, Your boat has nice lines, very nice

We have one of each and couldn't live without either one. However, we aren't living on either of them. We just picked up the Safari 17' Sport and also have a new Sanibel by International Marine (that's ours in their photos with the dark navy hull and burgandy interior) Sanibel 18' sitting in Dana Point Harbor, Dana Point, CA.

Great option to either go camping or sailing on the weekends.

Depends on your bank account/future earnings. Boats LOOSE value - Airstreams maintain or gain in value. Do the math. Boats can capsize, get held up by pirates, require MUCH more skill to navigate, sink and kill you, get you sea-sick, need regular barnacle/bottom cleaning, are best in sunny weather, must be kept in a slip (rent), prone to guests and pets disappearing overboard, have several steps to climb up and down each time u enter, yada, yada yada. You can always RENT a Sailboat, but when you get your airstream, customized to YOUR spec's, she will ALWAYS be yours. You can't rent that.
