    Default Boat Cost Calculator

    So I have been looking into new / newer boats and I decided that I needed some sort of calculator that I could input costs into. It is kind of a anti justification chart though the cost per hour is high as expected. Let me know what you think of if there is anything I should add.

    Maybe a future sticky?

    When it comes time to sit down with the wife and talk cost I need to be very prepared. On the plus side divide the cost per hour by the average number of people you take out and it is pretty reasonable

    My cost is much geater, I have a larger boat balance, plus I have Beer, then I factory in half my truck payment and truck fuel.

    If i didnt have a boat I really wouldnt need a truck.

    Honestly though I'm glad I dont need to justify my boating costs, the memories and time spent on the boat literally are priceless to me and if it wasn't for boating, I wouldn't know any of you, nor would I goto Texas each year for a 3 day Beer fest that some call the Texas Jam

    Just played with your Calculator, I'm closer to 95 an hour the way your numbers fall.
    I don't like your Calculator...LOL

    I only did mine for the boat as it is now with my current Payments and the amount I financed

    I agree with daze on this one but intrigued with the cost per hour and divided out by number of people. I have yet to get anyone to pay even close to what it cost to run per hour once let alone consistently. I view the time I spend with them as payment and if they chip in for gas then bonus. if your crew is paying for actual time each time out, send them my way

    then there's the other thought of knowing what you really want and the reality of obtaining one for $30k

    I think moombadaze said it best, I really don't think you can put a price on family time. I have watched my son go from barely getting on a tube, to now wakeboarding,surfing, wakeskating skiing and jumping off the cliffs, I could never put a price on that

    Oh trust me the crew definitely doesn't chip in enough but that is another topic. Oh and the time spent on the water with family and friend is priceless. That said my boat does exactly that but there is always something better out there to spend money on.
