Brand doesn't matter much in terms of salt/fresh, but an inboard with freshwater cooling will last much longer without problems. Without, lifespan is probably 10-20 years until fatal corrosion. With is nearly infinite. Otherwise, just keep up with maintenance. Wiring and electronics will start to fatally corrode after 8-10 years. Boats are work whether you buy new or not, salt or fresh. I have a fairly encyclopedic knowledge of boats if you have more specific questions. Although you will find better answers on other forums

Depends what you’re after - speed and day cruising, fishing, overnight trips, etc.

We’re pretty happy with our Duckworth but then we usually do overnight fishing/shrimping/camping trips and outfitted it accordingly

Viking - manufactured 90% in-house. Sharp, timeless design. Fab for both sport fishing and cruising. Stateroom design (on the port side v. bow = less movement if anchored).

Does anyone have any advice for dogs who hate snow? I put a jacket on him (he literally will not walk in doggy boots), and shoveled the snow so there is some patch of grass but he still won’t go. He hasn’t peed/pooped since yesterday around 1pm. I’ve set up a wee wee pad inside but he’s never used them. I’ve never wanted my dog to pee indoors so much 😭😭

Is anyone finding that companies just aren’t willing to take a chance on you anymore? I’ve applied for so many roles in the HR field (my dream area) but keep getting rejected purely on my lack of experience. I’m not in a position in my current role to gain more experience in that space! Just makes me want to cry because I know I have the drive and the passion

New Years reflection PSA: please don’t indulge in “I should have invested in X stock this last year.” Investing always requires decisions based on the information you have at your disposal at the moment. Hindsight investing regrets are completely invalid because they are always based on information no one in the universe had before.

There are no wrong decisions, only decisions based on incomplete information. Never feel bad about the latter.
