Buying a boat
Buying a boat as a young man in New York is difficult. Boat prices are insane in the city. The solution to that is going to other places. I started to look for boats outside of the city. Places such as Baltimore, Connecticut, Long Island and even as far as Virginia. The next problem that is getting the boat out here to the city. My mother, Terence, and I have already started to plan a road trip out to different places. Terence is another student from New York Harbor School who is a part of the process of getting a boat. The reason we are getting a boat is so we can work on it and learn as much as we can about boats on our own. Another reason is that not many 17 year old juniors in high school can say they bought an old boat and fixed it up. A lot of grown people can't even say that. But the hardest part about buying a boat is finding a place to PUT the boat for a reasonable price with electricity, water systems, sewage disposal, etc. But for now I am still in the looking process. Wish me luck!!!
