Re: Charter/rental woes...and question

We had similar language when I worked for a marina renting Rhodes 19s for daysails to the general public. In practice, we only kept deposits when it was operator error that caused the damage (i.e.,...

Re: 40 ft sailboat with 800kg/1729 Lbs Drugs arrested!!

I get why they claim they need to do this -- but it is beyond any sense of reason.

Consider that the feds could walk into retail stores in Washington and Colorado (and soon more states) and seize...

Ridiculous that my tax dollars are paying these yahoos to seize pot (of all things) way outside the jurisdiction of the U.S.

Re: this puts the price of boats into perspective

That's not a bad way to do it, but it wasn't without a little luck. Had you immigrated to the U.S. in 2006 and bought your first home, you would probably have filed for bankruptcy by now.

Re: this puts the price of boats into perspective

Well, duh. That's sorta the point. If you cannot buy the boat without financing, don't buy the boat.

Re: this puts the price of boats into perspective

It's one thing to strategically use financing to buy a boat because it is better for your overall financial portfolio, which might be the case for any number of tax, accounting or investing reasons....

Re: Stay away from Key Colony Beach...Sailing Related version.

This sounds more like a local zoning law intended to prevent nuisance situations in the community. For example, I am sure many municipalities ban people from living in an RV in someone's driveway. ...

Re: Quick Advice: Donating a boat ride for charity

What is the purpose of getting a receipt for the value of a 1 week rental unless you are planning to take a deduction for the value of the 1 week rental?

Anyway, totally not allowed.

Re: Funding retirement boat

Selling the house because you don't want to live there anymore is one thing. Selling the house to fund a boat purchase--at retirement age after making a lifetime of mortgage payments--is another.

Re: Funding retirement boat

I don't like any of those options if you're talking about traditional "retirement" -- i.e. 60+ end of career move.

Turning any of your retirement investments into a boat seems like a bad move. ...

Re: .25 gal/hr. Really???

Check out Bellingham Washington and the nearby marinas/communities. You sound like you'd fit in a lot better there, than some of the cities on the East Coast being recommended to you.

Re: .25 gal/hr. Really???

My Yanmar 1 GM, I believe, sips less than .25 gal/hour at around 2500 rpm.

I have not formally taken measurements, but honestly I would not be surprised if it actually uses less than .25 gal/hour....

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

I think age has a lot more to do with it than gender.

We are 35 (me) 33 (her) and 5 (the boy) and have zero "luxury" aboard our 30+ year old boat. A place to sleep, a way to go to the bathroom,...

re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

We won't move up in size until we can buy the boat without financing. I've always had a thing against financing luxury items. Wouldn't even consider doing it.

Re: Who should pay?

I generally agree with the consensus that both rafted boats are responsible for their own boat's damage from a third boat's wake.

However, I think the consent to be rafted to by another boat has...
