I got a couple of boats last year, one for free and one for a hundred bucks. Keep your eyes open while driving around and if you see a boat in someones yard that is covered in weeds and stuff and hasn't been used in years knock on their door and ask them about it. Somatimes it's just a case of people not having gotten rid of them yet. It never hurts to ask anyway. I also got a free canoe. I have had to do repairs on the canoe and one boat, but fiberglass and aluminium repair kits are cheap and easy to use. I cut up the free boat because all the seams leaked and am in the process of mounting its remains on top of the other boat as a blind.
