    My family has got a speedboat. We live close to the Ohio river, but we only take it out 2-3 times per year, if that.

    With all the upkeep costs, gas, storing it, plus the expense of buying one, It's something I would never do. But if you are absolutely sure it's something you'll use a TON, then go for it. If I lived In a place where I could boat for more than a few months of the year, that would change my tune as well. but here, essentially September-April are almost completely out of the picture. Basically you get late May-August to do it, or you'll freeze your butt off in the water.

    I have a friend who works for a marine repair shop, and he always said the best day to be a boat owner is the day you buy it.. after that, declining happiness about it.

    My best course of action is to find a friend with a boat.. and wheez off them.
