Re: A Discussion of the Philosophies of Cruising and Circumnavigating

I'd find it rather strange to set off around the world or on a life of full time cruising in a boat that was not owned outright and I am not at all in favour of borrowing money to buy a boat. However if all you plan is to weekend sail and maybe an annual holiday cruise or alternatively liveaboard but maintain full time employment then why on earth would you not consider borrowing to buy boat ?
