    My FH wants a boat so very bad also.  He found one last summer and wanted to buy it.  However, to me it is more important at this point in my life to get married and buy the boat in a year or two.  He agreed so looking for a boat is on hold.

    I don’t know…have you looked into the costs of maintaining a boat? It’s pretty expensive. Can you afford to keep it up afterwards?

    If you can, and you can fix it up, then it sounds like a good investment.

    Then you can do a small wedding…JOP, dinner w/ family, and sail away on your boat for your honeymoon…

    What is more important to you? having the luxury to escape to the Caribbean for months on end (JEALOUS!) or a one day affair but one you will remember and cheerish the rest of your life? how about you have both? get the boat now (craigslist prob won’t last long) and plan a destination wedding (vow renewal?) in the carribbean later down the road 🙂 good luck!

    Boats are a lot of upkeep, and 5 hours is really far–you’d never be able to just spend the day out on the boat.  Maybe get a boat when you live closer to the water?

    So funny that you wrote this post because I also had to make this choice. I choose the boat. We had the choice to buy a boat and have a small wedding or a large lavish wedding. Not a choice for me, the boat wins every time. We spend most of our summers on water whether it is fishing or sporting.
