Default what do you do for a living

i was just curious about what kind of job some of you have to be able to purchase a $100,000 fishing boat.
i myself am a wildlife firefighter in simcoe, the wife wont let me buy another boat she says there a waste of money. im thinking of selling my 02 boston whaler an getting a new boat and hopefully she wont notice.

Boats are a waste, but Manolo Blahnik boots, Louis Boutin shoes, plastic surgery, manicures, and pedicures are a necessity. Well, scratch that plastic surgery, that might be a good investment but I would want to be involved in the cup size decision.

Default What do you do for a living

I often wondered the same thing...

I am retired from Federal service, working full time on a second retirement, and wife works for the Government and has 10 more years before she can retire. All in all we have a nice combined annual salary but I can not afford a 100k boat. Or let me re-phrase, I am not going to have a Boat payment or atleast not a big one. I'll just have to enjoy my 21 CC that is paid for...

Been in the boat/yacht repair field going on my 33rd year, and now in the marine a/c business for 23 of the 33...

Still can't afford to buy a $100,000 boat though...and after all this time... I'm not really sure that I would...Hmmm...
Well Sure I Would...If I didn't have to work on it myself

Thing is I might be hard to please...Nahhh...Hope Not...

I am in consulting but I make serious money distributing blow and weed to my friends and neighbors....with that said, I stole the boat I currently run so money wasn't an issue.

All kidding aside, you buy a USED $100k boat as cheap as you can steal it.

My wife streetwalks every night.

Last night she made $250.25

I asked her what cheap-skate only paid her 25 cents.

"All of them," was the answer.

Buying a $100,000 boat has nothing to do with your job. It is all about your net worth. I have owned a $100,000 boat and my income is not that great but I own everything outright and have no debt. Saved my extra cash over the years and made good investments and smart choices. If you have to ask this question then you can't afford it. that $100,000 rig will cost $10,000 a year to own and use. if you don't have that kind of free cash and the time to use it Why Buy it.

I'm a professional lure maker and rigger now. I have been a commercial fisherman owner operator,licensed river guide. It would be safe to say that I need a boat just for research and development it helps the money to keep coming in with out it I would have to get a real job and that is just not going to happen. I sit here and talk boating and fishing all day long as I rig up many of yalls lures and sometimes just in my underwear. I know this really sux but hey someone has to do it. My other choice was a crack whore competition is stiff . My wife is 12 years younger then me she works and I'm a stay at home dad, inventor of the flying fish
now is this a lamp or bikini
