when you spend 100k on a boat does it realy matter what it costs to run it.

i know of rib owners that can have a new 100k boat a day and thats out of there intrest only.
i also know those that there old searider means more than there mrs

I have a good friend who spent 3/4 million on a boat ,did'nt like it bought a 1.25 million boat,didnt like it sold it for another one, but all the time came out with us in his 5mt air craft rib with a 50hp.........the point of this story is his 10k rib gave him a bigger smile than his 1.25 million boat

As to running costs most of the rich people I know don't mind forking out on toys but they HATE spending more than they have to on running costs - the chancellor gets more than enough out of them as it is!!!
