    Your question is short with no heart.
    If your asking, your heart is not into it.

    No..

    Now, sing us a better song and maybe, I'll change my first response.

    For us they all are but we're boating fanatics. If you don't love it, then charter or rent.

    If you have to ask, the answer is no. The charter advice is solid. Try it, maybe you'll like it.

    Unlikely you'll get unbiased answers here. We are all boat nuts. You either love it and can't get enough or you don't and you get out. For me, I couldn't imagine not having a boat as part of my life. But I've known plenty of people who were either to scared to take the leap, or did and had their fill and got out. Only one way to find out if it's right for you. For large yachts 50+feet, then charter may be an option but if you plan to be an operator on a smaller boat then it won't really give you a feel for the joys and responsibilities.
