Can it be done? Here's my situation...
Just got married about a year and 1/2 ago. My wife is about halfway through her elementary education program. I originally was going to school to be a secondary ed teacher. I soon realized that most teachers in my area could barely afford a small house payment, let alone any sort of toys. I got my associates degree about a year ago and decided I would stop there until I decided what it really was that I wanted to do. Well I'm considering going back in the fall, and maybe go into teaching. I would love to have summers off, but not if I can't afford to do anything!
Are there any public educators out there? Will I be able to afford feeding my boating addiction without having to eat bread crumbs for dinner?
Side note... I don't need a brand new boat. It's always been kind of fun for me to own an older inboard and shred it better than the folks out there with the 50k+ boats. I would probably just pay cash for any boat I bought.
