I think partnering is a great idea as long as it is set up properly, and even then things can go wrong. Ask me how I know...

My dad partnered in airplanes, a partnership that last some 35+ years until my dad's passing a couple of years ago.

My boat partnership ended (somewhat badly) after only a couple of years. The issue was not getting someone who could economically afford a half a boat. I carried his share of fees and maintenance for far too long. Never recovered the money but I have the boat...

I have a decent partnership agreement - it really helped in the breakup.. If you want to have a look send me a pm with email address.

The second thing we did was set up a boat bank account and I used quickbooks pro to set the boat up as a business. The financial records were impeccable clearly documenting his arrears and a second benefit was detailed maintenance cost records.
