To Rent of Buy a Boat?

Now that summer is here, it may be tempting to plunk down money on a boat, even in Chicago. But does it really make sense?

I guess it all depends on how—and how much—you plan to use it cruising Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. Let’s face it, in almost all cases, you will be better off finding an alternative to boat ownership in Chicago.

As Jeff Rose, certified financial planner and author of "Soldier of Finance," recommends; you shouild run the numbers before making a commitment.
