Storage for that rig can also be an additional drain on the wallet. Dry storage is priced by boat length, with added charges for taller profiles or wider beams. In-water storage can run into hundreds of dollars per month depending on the size of the boat and where you're located. If the boat is trailerable, make sure it meets home-owners' association covenants, or you'll have to find another place to keep it. And don't forget about tow vehicles. A crossover SUV is no match for a fully loaded 30-footer, and the need to buy a $50,000 pickup takes the shine off that $10,000 "bargain" you just brought home.
