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

We still don't own a sailboat, but today own 5 boats. LOL

To buy our first boat 25 yrs ago we had to setup a strict budget and hold our selves to it. Counting every penny we made and where it was spent.

other posters are right, in the end it's not the cost of the boat, it's the cost of owning the boat. Storage, docking, repairs, insurance, registration the list keeps going. Even if someone gives you a boat there's a great deal of cost to keep it.
