Re: share with me, your words of wisdom

jay, it is certainly possible. I would caution you to search around and read existing forum threads on what the costs of owning and operating a boat are, including things you may not have considered like liability insurance (the marina may require it) and routine annual maintenance (bottom paint) as well as the ways to check out an old used boat before you even call a surveyor in. And about surveyors as well. Even on a cheap old boat, it may be money well spent.

By all means, pursue it, but just be sure you know what you are getting into before you make the jump.
