Re: How did you get the money for your first sailboat?
Worked hard and worked lkots of overtime. My career and family the a house which can be an assset in most economies. came first so I settled for a hobie cat for 8 years, then a 25 footer, then a 28 footer, then a 35 footer.
I am conservative so I bought none on credit. I didnt go for immediate gratification as I had responsibilities so I defrred with a plan to work for in the future.
