Re: How did you get the money for your first sailboat?
Over the course of all the boats I've had I have done the following in order to get them (in no particular order): saved, worked a LOT, done side jobs, partnered with my brother, borrowed from (Dad, kids college fund, my business, savings, etc), sold stuff, drove beater cars and bought derelict boats that needed extensive work. About the only thing I haven't done to feed my addiction is steal:-))
