Default Do you own your boat

With the recent threads about borrowing money, boat loans, credit scores, etc... It has me wondering how many people actually own 100% of their boat and how many people are borrowing money to pay for their boats?

Personally, I could have financed a much nicer boat than what I have but this is my first offshore style boat so instead of getting in over my head I opted to buy what I could afford to pay for cash.

Unless I screw it up, which is highly possible, I'll make it a private poll so nobody can see how you vote if you don't want them to know.

Even when you pay them off seems like the bleeding never stops.If i'm going
to fiance Home Equity loans are the great way to purchase your toys,if you
can benefit from the right off.

Always pay cash for toys so you can afford to fix them when they break.

I used to own my boats... THEN... I decided I needed a boat payment. Got rid of two that I owned and financed one. Something is wrong with this picture
