Partner is studying for charter boat captain's license. You gotta log 1,000 hours and you gotta have a good boat. Looking to spend 5k -15K on a USED dive/fishing power boat. I don't know the first thing about boat loans but would prefer to work with a place that specializes in this sort of customer. Willing to join whatever credit unions, organizations, associations to make this work. Looking for advice, mistakes not to make and rules of the road (or sea). Thanks.

Who were they and what, exactly, were they doing? [more inside]
