    Perhaps we could say "if you want to be "green" do not buy anything new."

    All boats are not recreational vehicles.....some are homes, many are transportation in places were there is no alternative, many are jobs, many are a combination of these functions. I own two boats, one is transportation and the other my only home.

    The reality is that many thousands of boats already exist, in many cases I believe it far "greener" to live aboard a modest boat (bought well used, not new) than to live in a new apartment. Living on a boat can eliminate the need to play the real-estate lottery and reduce ones footprint all kinds of ways.....Boats (in the form of modest housing) can be one path to a "greener" future....
