Re: How did you get the money for your first sailboat?

BTW, there's a guy in Ensenada who started with a free Cal 25 in So Cal. He cleaned it and fixed everything and sold it and bought a neglected 30 footer. He cleaned it and fixed everything and sold it and up & up, always looking for the next good deal and now he has a beautiful ~47 foot Nordhavn. He invested many many hours as he came up the ranks but the dollars were hundreds at a time, not hundreds of thousands. It took him 10 years and he was able to enjoy boating the whole time.
He bought very carefully, never bought a boat with more than 1 major problem.
