I've got plenty of time, some money and a half a boat. What shall I do?

I was made redundant at the end of Jan 2011; part of the government's budget cuts to save the UK economy - or at least that's what I'd like to believe. Anyway, as sad as that may be it is essentially an opportunity for me! Firstly, I've got redundancy money so I no longer need to save for two years to go on a long-term sailing trip. Also, I've got all the time in the world at present as I am unemployed. Expenses are running though so I need to think quickly about what I'll be doing, before my bank account runs dry.

If the boat was ready to go I would probably not think about it twice; I would pack up and go! However, it is not ready yet and that means I have to spend more money and time on it. Or I could just buy another one.

Here's a great post by John Vigor that is quite inspirational. Makes me want to just stop thinking and start doing!
