Re: "You make your money buying the boat, not selling it."
I don't know what that means.
A wild guess is that he has lot taxable income, buy a boat is another tax write off. Use the boat as business, all the loss is tax deductible. The net gain is from the income tax he saves.
The beauty of our society. It takes lots money to make lots money. Don't fight it, embrace it.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
