financial help

Agree with Bill that best way to minimize maintenance costs is older boat that someone has already done a GOOD job of modernizing/upgrading/maintaining and would add that other option is boat ~10 yo or less well maintained/maybe little use and few if any poorly done "improvements" you will have to correct.
There are a number of boats like above because unfortunately a lot of people seem to have a dream of retiring to boatlife and attaining/fixing/buying that perfect boat comes too late for them to use for long.
We all approach that "bigger" or "boat of my OWN" with financial trepidation, in my case, to the point of "it''s now or never for that boat in the water, not on a trailer, you''ve always wanted".
