A cleverly written and funny anylasis and deep down probibly has some truth. My one extravigance has been buying and selling solo boats. In general I stay close to the break even point,and have a lot of fun. Every once in a while I get a "keeper". I really don't know nearly everything about solos,and value the knowlege and experience here. I have never paddled a Vagabond or Yellowstone solo,so they are on my to try list. There is a big difference for me paddling a boat that can be forced to turn or go straight vs one that loves to.Also,my paddling priorities and phisical abilities keep changing,so it's a moving target.I actually reduced my fleet by one boat last year by finding buying one that replaced 2!.
