Read this tip to make your life smarter, better, faster and wiser. LifeTips is the place to go when you need to know about Boat Ownership and other Boat topics.
Before you buy, take adequate time to think about how you plan to use a boat and how many people will likely be on it at one time. For example:
*Will you often invite friends along?
*Do you want a boat primarily for fishing or other activities like water skiing?
*Do you want a boat that you can take on the water for one day? A long weekend? Or a week-long excursion?
*Are you a leisurely person or do you like getting from place to place as fast as possible?
All these questions will help narrow your search for a boat and make it less likely that you'll purchase one that doesn't suit your lifestyle.
