Today we are off for Delaware where they have no sales tax and we are going shopping for boat stuff. I thought I was done with boat stuff when we sold our sailboat out in the Pacific, but no, here we go again. In our yachtie community we called $1,000 spent on a boat a boat unit. We plan on spending, oh, maybe three boat units today. What are we thinking? Are we nuts?
