Delux, yes the rent is now considered income
. Thank you for your service
seized, I have 2. I hear what you are saying but to me you have to ignore some of those voices in your head
called reason or one would never have this lifestyle. I think shopping
and making a good purchase
and not just taking whatever is the cheapest. Cost of ownership
: I have or at least as much as possible anyway, so many variables that it is almost impossible to do with any type of accuracy.
I lived on a 28' Morgan
for 3 years, while not trying to compare a 440 with this boat, it really did not cost me a nickel. Fully understanding that if everything went to ****, and continued to do so it would not be a very good time. I do believe that I have the ability to maintain and fix with the emphasis on maintain a boat without it costing 50k a year. At retirement
the wife and I will be on a fixed income of around 2k a month but the boat will be paid off and we have no debt and some savings.
Really do not think I am putting myself in a corner, have income, own a house, savings etc.. Wanting to buy it earlier than retirement
is really my only "dilemma." The whole loan issue is more of a buy now thing and does not come into play when we shove off.
As for an update on the loan, one said yes and another said no. but it is just a prequal so it is really hard to get some lenders to run a prequal when you let them know you are still 6 months out and currently in Afghanistan.
We are stuck on a cat and will be full time liveaboards, when doing a search I find that you can buy in the 200K range and get a decent 380 Lagoon
but it just seems to be a bit small for our particular plans. With that it is still an option for us but it is not our first option.
Thanks for all the feedback.
