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

read a lot of "boat maintenance books", then looked for a project boat with good hull and put in a lot of sweat equity.

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

I've been saving since I got out of college, and also immediately started working about 5 days after my last day of college. I just started sailing at the end of last summer, and wound up buying an old flying scot off a new friend. I'm now learning to sail, and saving for a bigger boat one day.

I find myself constantly looking at different boats on yachtworld etc. and learning about them here. Patience is key, as I'd like to pay cash for my big boat eventually.

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

I saved tax returns and sold my Rolex. I had won the Rolex for being the #1 sales rep in the USA in 2008(the big ketchup co.) and although there is a lot of sentimental value, a sailboat would give me more overall pleasure. I wore the Rolex for 3 years then decided it was time to convert it into a sailboat.
