Re: How did you get the money for your first sailboat?
I guess I represent a different view. A lot of comments on this thread include "worked a lot" or "worked hard". Coming from the old continent, were we rather work to live as opposed living to work (how otherwise to have time to actually use the boat if one is working all the time). My first boat was 4 yrs old 27ft and paid with a balance of downpayment and marine financing. I do not have any regrets doing that.
