S2 7.9 Bear Lake, UT
Have you crunched the numbers on what it cost for the last decade to own your boat? My boat did not have a dodger or any significant electronics so my $12k/year did not include any of these expenses.If you have to ask, you may not be able to afford it.
I have put more than I paid for the boat back into the boat over the past 10 years of ownership.
What i find interesting is all the NE people talk of bottom paint each year. Is that a factor of once it is out of the water might as well paint the bottom or is there something in the waters up there requiring more frequent bottom paint?
