If you are like me, you don't have a lot of money to spend on a boat. Used boats represent a huge savings over buying new.


Years ago I bought a boat for $15,000. The seller said, "Well the first time you take this out it will cost you $15,000 a sail. The next time only $7,500 and the third time $5,000." I understand what he was saying. No matter how much or little you pay for a boat, make sure you sail it. Buying a boat cheap you can't sail while you fix it up is foolish. Boatyards are full of these "fixer-uppers". MORE
