RE: advice re boat
Boat prices for useful boats is still declining .
We last had an Albin 36 with gen set and dual coldplate freezers go for $25K.
And that was 2 years ago.
In Florida $75K will pick up a fine cruiser .
Florida Mariner lists the boats for sale on line.
Many can be trucked to the PNW and still be half or less of what the dreamers are still asking.
Since the Fanny/Freddy disaster baloon popped the housing bubble they created , DEFLATION has so far been the rule.
If you don't have to borrow to purchase the boat , you are in the drivers seat!! Big time!!
