Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

My first sailboat was a Hunter 23 I made it a nice boat, but from the get go I knew I wanted larger; 30-35 ft. The money spent on the smaller boat would have been better served in the budget for a larger boat at the time. BUT, I listened to everyone saying "start small" I sold the H23 in 11 months for about what I bought it for plus the roller furling and head sail I added.

Many of us think boats as an investment but they are like cars. Very very FEW every appreciate in value. We see people making money flipping houses and cars. I don't see flipping as a money make for boat restorations.

"Make it better for one's own needs and use" makes allot of sense and that's just what I do with my floating money pit. She always brings me home
