It's my good credit that lets me have a 250k boat loan, it's a 2nd home write off for us. I wish I had a job where that much cash was on hand for what ever I wanted.

Not to be confused with the other Mild Thunder ...
My boat was paid in cash, bought it from Dallas Heat from this Site. this is my
3rd boat started out with a 23ft rinker paid cash for all 3 and I'm working my way up to a 32-35 footer
gas,winter storage ,maintenance , summer slip and lift added up is just as high as a payment tho.
