Wondering COMPLETE ball park opinion on how much:

Tax title and license would be on a $13k boat? I know varying by state yada yada yada just ball park.

Cost to running a season given going every weekend and one night a week? Wakeboarding with weight in the boat ball park.

If you were to buy a used boat... ball park how much would tax, title, and license be?

Also how much do you think you spend in a season of riding?

Thinking about buying a used boat just planning ahead on the cost per year and the upfront cost. Thanks

I have no clue what i spend, if i did i'd probably sell the damn thing!

Seriously i never keep track, it's just a given that it costs money. I don't know anyone that does track it. Recently a week at Shasta cost me around $400 in gas, but that's just gas in the boat. As far as your tax & license only you can figure that, we don't know your tax rate or license fee schedule.

with the info avail it's not a ball park it's a WAG, but I will play.

10% of the cost for tax/lic/title.
$250/year for some insurance.
Based on the price I would say older boat and gas at 3-4gal/hr, or 4-5gal/hour weighted...assuming an older boat won't take as much weight.
Unless it's on the water you need to tow it....take the tow vehicle mpg and figure you'll get 70% of that towing.
I spend less than $100/year on maintenance stuff, but I don't use it every weekend and once during the week. Plug $400 for that.
I would also guess that a $13k boat might need some initial repairs / upgrades to get it boarding ready. $1500
And then there's beer.......

Keep in mind none of those numbers will be correct, since we have no idea what your situation is.
