Buying The Perfect Boat

Why is it that when you are looking to buy a boat, you can never find one that suits your needs? This is what happens to many people every year, and in particular to ourselves. It's like buying a house. When you're selling, it's a buyer's market and when you're buying is a seller's market! This year my husband and I decided it was time to buy our first boat. We have been boating with our friends on their Bayliner for many years. They pay for the expenses of the boat and bring food and drink at the exchange. Not a bad deal we realized until we got the boat bug ourselves. Now we want our own boat.

After six years of sailing and as many seasons of boat shows, we decided to take a navigation course. So a couple of winters ago, she enrolled in a fairly long navigation course of 16 weeks. We decided that firstly we wanted to be safe boaters and secondly we wanted to protect our very expensive boat investment when the time comes. Week after week of classes, lesson after lesson of plotting and tying knots came and went and finally came time to graduate and try your luck at boating with all this knowledge pool. We decided first to test our experience in the boat of our friends, but found it was like having two cooks in the kitchen. Things did not work as well as one would like. Tie a knot.
