Re: How did you get the money for your first sailboat?
Worked my ass off, 7 days a week, found a 27 Catalina that was a derilict, picked it up for $2,000 from a charity organization, then dumped another $2,000 into it over a 5 year period. After 5 years of use, sold it for $4,000, and purchased my current boat, a 33-Morgan Out Island, 1973. The money for the Morgan was saved over the five years I owned the Catalina.
