You're a meshugana is what you are Rebel Heart, if you think a boat is an investment!

LOL I with any statements that buying a boat is a business transaction....Unless you plan on running a business with your boat it certainly is not....Its an emotional transaction plain and simple.

Yes it has personal financial ramifications but not business ones.

Its sort of like saying a good deal on the Limousine is accentual in a weddings success for the marriage to have value.

Buy the stinkin boat you want, regardless of price if you can afford only go around once.

Now I have to go look up meshugana..

"Go simple, go large!".

Relationships are everything to me...everything else in life is just a tool to enhance them.
