For you guys that have gone through big re-powers or refits, how have you paid for them? Bank loans, credit cards, home equity loans, lots of cash in hand...? I am going to start putting some money aside for some big projects id like to do to the boat next winter and am curious how everyone has paid for the big expenditures.
Cash for 90% of it. When that ran out I begged my daddy! Pathetic but true.
True, buy him a beer, he's still ahead.
Unfortunately, in today's day and age, if a child repays their parents AT ALL, they are ahead .
I remember when my sister was a teenager, she asked my dad... "dad, can I borrow $20?". This went on for a couple of months. At one of those requests, my father pulled a $20 out of his wallet and said "borrowing implies that you will pay me back, do you want to borrow $20, or do you want me to give you $20?". My sister immediately snatched the $20 out of his had and said "give me the $20".
It's the sounds and the smell! :lol:
