As long as I've been looking (years), I swear its exhausting.

Maybe my expectations are too high and I'm searching for something that just doesn't exist.
I love shopping for boats, I even shop for boats when I'm not looking for a boat just in case I happen across something interesting/fun or flippable.

You can always buy something cheap that you can get your money back out of while you shop for the perfect boat.

I would rather have a $1000 boat than go boatless for years. Sounds stressful.

Most folks own more than one boat in their lives, the first boat is rarely the last boat.
