there's always someone....

there's always someone out there with a bigger, faster, more expensive whatever. Comparing yourself to others is a losing propostion. It's also a very easy way to get in over your head trying to keep up with the 'Jones'.

BUT, the yacht brokers and manufactures love it. Sail mag had an article on 'starter cats' $199k to $350k...Yea, right....

No offense taken, I was just giving my opinion, and I wish I could have paid cash. But I would not want to drive half the cars carrying that bumper sticker .
