Which would you rather have, a boat or a waterfront cabin? :?:

If you don't intend to fish don't buy a boat. Waterfront cabins defeat the purpose...get away from it all, get a cabin in the woods in the mountains...less permit officials around to tell you how to build your home.

Definitely agreeing with MessyTendon on this one.

Cabin.

As far away from other people and busy roads as possible.

Sailboat. It can take you anywhere in the world you want to go.

It depends on where the waterfront is.

Is it a big boat? a small cabin on a lake? Probably a cabin on a secluded lake or stream with some nice trout fishing!

House near a lake. I have one and love it.

Oh, cabin without a doubt. Just a small full time retreat/hermitage in the Redwoods on the north coast of California, perhaps within listening distance of the surf.

Wait, I lived in something like this once! The mice were terrible...

Boat. We call it “the floating burrow”. :lol:
That isn’t the boat’s name.... it just means we take our vacation house and move it to wherever we want to be. If you get tired of the view, just move to a new place! You don’t need to make reservations, you just anchor where you wish (with just a few restrictions).
When the sun shines, bask.

The question is too narrow. It should be "what would you rather have, a boat, a waterfront cabin, or a mansion overlooking the French Riviera?" I'll take the mansion.

It is really tough to round the leeward mark with a cabin. I’ll stick with a sailboat.

Cheapest thing about buying a boat... is buying the boat.
