ok, as with all items, this is a ballancing act, but I''d like to get some opinions from people who''ve gotten into the sitation before.
I have a perfectly little acceptable 20 footer which I love. (which now has a head. WHOOT! I can stay out all day now
but I realy like the tritons, and may have a chance to get get one soon.
I''ve dedicated myself to sailing at least once a week so I keep building my skills, and I''m only reciently out of debt, so those are two major influences.
now my options are:
1.) sell my Josie, possibly dont buy the triton, be boatless untill I get something new, save money on slip fees in the mean time, but loose sailing.
2.) buy the boat by going into debt, sell Josie afterwards, in the mean time pay double slip fees, and have one boat sitting around not getting used, pay the debt off slowly and then finaly cash it out when my Josie sells.
Other important factors, are that the Triton is a bit larger, and I''m hoping to soon go liveabord if I do get her, so the overall cost will be a bit less, but untill I do, the cost to keep her docked, (and of course all my maintance costs, as she''s a much larger boat) will go up.
So, for you cats who''ve done the upgrade dance, what have you found works best for you?
