Default applies to everybody on this forum

ok, if you're on this forum, I think we all know you have a performance boat, and to tow that performance boat, you need a big tow rig. Both of which cost plenty of money. So, how does every body on his forum make the money they need to support this great "Hobby" we all know and love? Occupations? Investments? what?

Didn't buy the trailer or the truck. I use the proceeds from the savings to buy boat gas and fund my retirement.

Financing....... Lots and lots of financing
If you actually had to shell out $100-200k for the boat and $40-50k for the truck in cash a lot less people could afford this sport..

I am a po-boy so i have less than $10k total in my boat+trailer+truck.. (84 Chappy 21/454 and 96 F250 Pstroke)
Get the job done but definately not OSO
