I have always been a sailing boat rather than a power boat type of person. I have owned a number of yachts, the last of which was an S&S 30. Unfortunately the family were not into sailing. As the years went on the yacht just sat on a mooring and more time was spent maintaining it than using it. Eventually it all got too hard and I sold the boat a few years ago. It is not an uncommon situation. I have spoken to many former yacht owners who found the same thing.
Living near Sydney Harbour and not having a boat seemed such a waste. I had never had much to do with powerboats but decided I would buy one and see if the family were keen enough to make use of it. We discussed it and they were enthusiastic.
Why am I telling you this? Being a Project Manager, I treated it as a project. As I near completion, I want to share with you my approach and some of the lessons I learned by using project management outside the conventional business area. In some areas, it was not pretty.
