About HMS Ocean, she reminds me on my old Ford Fiesta and reasons why I haven't sell her after I have bought a new Focus. I couldn't get any decent amount of money for her ( for that amount I can't buy a decent bike or Chinese scooter ) and while I still have operational costs ( insurance and registration, repairs etc. ), but I have a car that's still in good working order, that I can use for anything without thinking much what will happen to it, not to mention that I have allways ready replacement car if anything happens to Focus. Yes, it's expensive, but it would be even more expensive without that car.
