RE: The real costs of boat ownership

Right on. I agree entirely.*A ton of stuff. Creature comforts. Heck I went for years* sort of camping out with a tent on the water.* As stated. Depends on your comfort standards.* I don't need a camera in the engine room.* Sure do want one.* Do you want a coleman stove or a built in propane range. I guess My point being all the bells and whistles cost money and repair.**Everything breaks.*The more stuff you have the more maintenance. The greater the cost of ownership.* The biggest cost being labor. If you find something someone else sunk tons of time and materials into I think you can be way ahead of the game. Good bones is good bones. Old or new.
