Ok folks we are all excited that we are now down hill from winter and headed for spring and we are all itching to get back to the water. I know a lot of you out there are heading to the 2016 Boat show and ready to make that wonderful decision to buy the boat of your dreams, but you should really think about some things first.
Besides the obvious cost of buying a boat, you might want to consider where will you keep your boat when your done using her? Do you have a dock to moor her up, and/or a boat lift ready? If you don't then you will be stowing your boat on our property for some time because these things can take awhile to get built. Permits can take awhile to get completed so I would recommend starting the process now to get the ball rolling. Also if you have a old dock, or boat lift, then you might want to get it repaired first, All it takes is for a strong storm to turn your dock to a dilapidated wood pile and what ever was attached to it will be severely damaged or lost.
Remember a boat isn't much fun if you are always worrying if her moorings are not structurally sound or you don't have a place to keep her.
