Boating can be an exciting way to spend leisure time, entertaining business clients, travel or other business ventures. Since the types of boats and their uses vary so widely, one has to decide what is the main purpose or use of the boat they want.
Usually the type and size of boat depends a great deal on where it will be used. Will it be for salt or fresh water use? How often will it be used, daily, weekly, monthly or just seasonal. If one lives on the coast, it is generally assumed that one would get more frequent use from a boat than someone who lives in the Great Lakes areas for example.
