Used to own a small yacht. Was fine when we lived somewhere you could sail most states of the tide, but when we moved to a harbour where the sea was less accessible it became "1. A hole in the water you pour money into."

Unless you really do plan to either sail/motor on rivers or lakes, and almost every day, just hire as needed: it will save you an absolute fortune.

I reckon that in out last year we made maybe four trips in total, all lasting much less than a day, and each one cost us well over £1000! Never mind all the time spent maintaining and cleaning etc - and that was on a fibre-glass vessel. Much worse if you have any wood (at all).

If you really love boating then fine, but if it has to be fitted in around work etc, just hire!
