I have been cruising and living aboard for over 40 years and have never made a boat payment to a bank. I have built all my own boats. I do my own maintenance and repairs. I don't pay storage,just anchor out for free.
If your boat is costing you that much then you are obviously doing things wrong. Don't assume everyone does things that wrong.
