I just bought a cheap boat to remind myself the things that'll go wrong... So far only complain is about the outboard engine and uncomfortable feeling of lightweight heeling... Engine problems, I'm used to... Heeling with a really light displacement , not yet... If you are, like me, after having a dream boat one day, buy a cheap boat to start dealing with the problems, once you come to level of confidence, you can surely enjoy a bigger better boat... If it's just for hobby, renting is a lot less expensive and enjoyable...

Materialism: Buying the things we don't need, with money we don't have, to impress people who don't matter.
