I just have to ask this question.

How many model boats do you have working.

How many under construction.
And how many set aside for later builds.

And I guess how many that will never get built..

I much prefer the company of older woman but as the years go by there are less and less about..

That is a scary question to ask.

I think if you dont know the answer off the top of your head is possibly to many.

I had a database of my fleet, all indexed with setups, condition, if they needed any work, ones i wouldnt sell ones i might sell, what i might like in the future. Thats long out of the window now.

Is there a too many number? I dont want to start adding my collection up, its well over 50, and 45 of those would be ready to sail at a moments notice.

This could become like an AA meeting, Hi Im Bob and I have a problem......

One 34" Fireboat
One 34" Huntsman
One 34" Perkasa
One 28" Huntress

Now she wants me to get rid of them all if possible, as I don't get out enough to sail them since my spinal condition worsened. But my normal reply to the question of how many models one bloke should have is... How ever many he has at the moment... plus one 😎

Funny, I was in a supermarket with the wife last night & this woman was having a right go at her husband saying he already had enough "toys" !!!
I just had to go up to her & say "sorry love, a man just can't have enough toys"
Even she had to laugh as everyone else was 👍

I have 12 working boats, 4 boat under construction, just the 1 set aside for later and I have no idea how many will never get built.

Happy sailing.

You can never have too many boats
