Refurbish-Lake storage vs Coastal?
A quick query; lets suppose you were open to the fact that you may be exposing yourself to a money drain, even more so than your average boat may be, by embarking upon a refurb. or project boat; what if any downfalls would you all see in docking said vessel in a freshwater lake during refurb. versus having it in final destination coastal waters?
I live approx. 5 hours from the coast, but less than an hour to a suitable freshwater lake that could easily accommodating a vessel of the size I am considering.
As my fledgling plan laid out in general discussions, to charter for the next 5+ years or so until certain of what type of vessel will fit us personally, so purchasing a fixer upper at say year 2-3, whilst continuing to learn while chartering comparable boats, would give me the opportunity to continue education and experiences, but also familiarize with my own vessel?
Not looking to get into a detailed discussion of the infinite pitfalls associated with a project boat, just FW berthing vs SW berthing!
Thanks in advance for any advice!
