Want To Save? Join The Clubs

If you’re like me, scraping, sanding, painting and generally getting dirty are part of the fun of boat ownership. If not, you can leave the labor and expense to others and still enjoy boating.

For those in that second category, there are ways to go boating without having to own the boat. Among “fractional” membership programs that make this work are two in New Jersey SailTime, primarily for sailors, and the Freedom Boat Club.
