Default Would Your Wife Let You Keep Your Boat in the Living Room?

I bought a house for my new wife because she did not want to live with me on my racing sailboat. Unfortunately she was out of town and never saw it before I did the deal.

My good Christian wife called it my F---ing House until she made it her own and then it was her house, my garage.

I collect vintage race boats and the photos below came from the original owner. I sure would like to know how a guy could get away with doing that.

That's not a boat - that is an antique and art work all in one. Depends on the space - if we had big enough rooms I could pull it off without too much of a battle. Rooms like we have now - hell no!!

My wife got a piano which she never plays. I could put a vintage boat in the same space and enjoy it a lot more











until the divorce decree was signed

Whether the wife would let me or not, I wouldn't want that in my living room. It is a beautiful piece but, just takes up way too much room.

Depends. Do you want to be *right,* or do you want to be happy?

As long as I let the grandkids play in it, she wouldn't care.

I owned my house before I got married. When my wife (then GF) first came to my house, she was a little shocked to see my jetboat parked in the basement, and trim pumps torn appart on the kitchen counter.

Beautiful boat.... In my case, my wife would have a heart attack. I might consider it just to watch her blow one day though
