Re: Alternatives to buying your own boat

In all honesty, it sounds like a recipe for disaster. I'm not saying it can't be done, or should'nt, but the group dynamics would have to be short of devine for it to work extented period. Cruise with another couple, whom you met on like a forum. Maybe you should look for people you already know well and are sure you will get along with in adverse conditions, whom you can trust with your life and finances, and then look into to getting a boat together. Or , lower your standards of the type of boat you think you need a partner to afford, and get a boat you could afford on your own. Like an older smaller, less expensive but just as seaworthy boat.
