How Do You Cope With Loss of Boat Buddy?

Dropped our youngest daughter off at Texas Tech today. She has been my all the time every time boat partner. Unload, load, spot, handle ropes and line, explain boat rules, etc. Now what? Or better yet, Who?

Pretty much an empty nester as well. My youngest, luckily is going college locally. He scheduled his classes around boating and golf. Don't know if that was a good idea.....but it's pretty lonely!

Or at least One I/2 day mid week.
