I have a wedding coming up in October that I'm trying to pay for it even if I get this great deal I'll still have to Drop another 1500 on the morning for the rest of the season...
My friend, you have a lot of expenses coming up, so I would seriously look at your income to make sure you are not going to overextend yourself financially. Look closely at all expenses involved in keeping the boat that size and make sure you can afford them. Buying a boat is typically just a tip of a money iceberg that is required to own and use it. Many marriages fall apart because of financial problems so I would be very, very careful when making this kind of commitment.
