About Toolboat

  1. Snap-on malibu sherwin-Williams
  2. This is the path I’ve chosen. I’ve never bought a new boat or car.
  3. Paying cash for something you can finance cheaply is sometimes quite costly over the long term. If you buy a $120,000 boat and can finance it for 20 yrs at 5% it will cost you $190,000. If you invest $120,000 for 20 yrs and can earn 3% you will have $216,000 at the end of 20 yrs. If you could earn 5% you would have $318,000. Long and short of it is, people have to do what makes them the most comfortable. Making a blanket statement about financing verses paying cash makes being right very difficult.
  4. I looked at a 1999 sea ray 340 sundancer today. I really like the size and layout. What would be the closest chaparral to the 340 sundancer?
  5. Thank you for the specifics. This may sound dumb. How does one go about getting a survey and how much does it cost
  6. Made it to look at 2 signature 300's I really like the boat. What should I look for buying one of these for power and options. And what should I avoid.
  7. I'm in steamboat Colorado
  8. The more I've searched the web, I think I'm going to start focusing on a signature 28-30 like you found. I have time.
  9. I have a 3/4 ton truck. I want to explore the lake and spend 2-3 nights at a time on the boat
  10. I'm looking for a boat with a cuddy or cabin cruiser. I only ask about chaparral because that what forum this is.
  11. I currently have a malibu response, but I would like to find something for the family (wife and 2 kids) to be able to take to Powell or flaming gorge for a weekend. I've owned a chaparral 1850ss in the past and was always impressed with the quality so I want another one. I'm keeping the malibu so this will be a second boat. I just would like so direction at what to look at. $30,000 max.
