Re: Please Help Me.
If this was just a toy that you couldn't afford, I would probably advise you to reel it back and wait until you graduate and are gainfully employed to play this game. Boats require constant maintenance. However, if you are going to live aboard for the foreseeable future, you are just investing in your home. Live anywhere else and you will also have constant financial surprises. You could rent, of course, but then you own nothing. Buy a house or condo and the stuff you have to fix is equally frustrating.
I've never had the same pleasure from buying a new furnace, hot water heater, roof or driveway that I get from updating the boat. But there are moments when all of us question our financial stamina.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
