|Boating in the us is
not overly costly you can pick up a small fishing boat with a
trailer second hand for $1000 - £539 there are many lakes
and rivers that you can put your boat in at a small charge for
some of the larger lakes.
Or you can buy a larger boat and
keep it in the marina for example for a 24ft boat in lake Geneva
it will cost you $10,000 but the boat can only be kept in the
water till winter starts to hit and the water freezes.
There are many activities you can do in the lakes other than
- Water Skiing
- Scuba diving
There is no tides and overly large waves to deal with in the
lakes so that makes boating a lot easier.
|The cost of boating in the uk is
much more expensive, you can not put boats into most uk lakes as
they are simply not big enough. So most boating is done in
saltwater there are not as many boats trailered in the uk
most boats are put into a marina or berth the average cost of
keeping your boat in a marina in the uk is £9000 -
$16,067 a year but it can be kept in the marina year round.
You have fast tides and large waves to deal with in the uk so if
you want to go deep sea boating you would most likely require a
boat of minimum 26ft to be safe from waves and tides.
A lot of the boats in uk are diesel purely because of high
running costs and uk petrol prices. You have to have a fair
amount of money in the uk to be involved in the boating scene.
Sailing is popular in uk due to strong winds and low running
costs this is a good alternative to power boats.
