Tomís Tips on Making Boating Bucks Count
- Always remember, life isnít fun unless itís fun. This means that itís OK, within reason and with careful prioritization, to spend on whatís really important to your good state of mind.
- If you canít afford to do what you wantólike buy a new boat, keep on the water by doing other things, like fixing up your old one or buying a used one. Prices on the latter are very good now.
- If youíre out of a job and have a lot of spare time, spend some of that time fixing up your boat. There are things you can do even without spending money. Think of the boat is an investment. Your sweat equity may pay off well some day.
- Youíd be absolutely amazed at what slowing down and keeping your bottom clean can do for your fuel bill.
- Donít save money by discontinuing your boat insurance because your boat is on the hard. It can be damaged or it can possibly cause damage to other property and people. If you donít think your insurance company is giving you a fair premium while the boat is on the hard, try to negotiate with them.
- It may be that youíll have to decide between pleasurable pursuits. For example, if youíre used to taking a ski vacation or chartering a boat in the Caribbean, consider that these are soon over and gone, while money spent on your boat can be a lasting investment in good and bad times
