    My big dream is to be debt-free and then own two new tricked out trucks.  I am not a fan of the water that much I am a land-lover.  So a big yacht would probably be out of the question.  I have always wanted to fly on a private jet though.  I wonder how much that would cost?-weshar75

            I would never be extravagant, although a 50 foot sailboat sounds nice. Maybe there's something wrong with me, but in my past I knew a lot of wealthy people and it never excited me. Anyway, a large yacht isn't a big turn-on if the guy has a little dinghy. (especially an inflatable one)

             

            If you win, will you "float" me a loan?  (big groan)

              Yeah,the boats are still in the trees there,so they will be cheap.

                  go to Ferrettigroup.com, it may change your mind. If your playing PB and W, I hope you get excited for yourself b/c you will be extremely wealthy

                    I kind of like Paul Allen's  Yacht .

                    "Octopus"

                    416 FT

                    Cost over 200 mil

                    Crew of 60

                    2 Helo's , seven boats, 10 man sub.

                    requires a 20 mil a year budget.

                     

                     Good Luck,

                    Blackie.

                        you could get a nice private jet anywhere from $750k - $5 mil.

                        Do you want a jet you have to crawl around in, or one you can stand up in?  Do you want one that can fly non-stop from New York to Las Vegas?  Do you want one that can fly non-stop from Los Angeles to Peking?  Do you want one with state of the art avionics? Do you want one less then ten years old?  Do you want one with a crew?  Do you plan on fixing things when they break, or performing some annual maintenance?  Do you plan on refueling it?  Do you have a place to store.

                        A 1980 Cessna Citation will cost you around $1.6M just for the title.  Oh, BTW, the height inside is around 5'8" and the width is around 5'9", the inside length is around 17'.  A new Boeing Business Jet (737) is around $45M S-T-R-I-P-P-E-D.  Insides will run you about another $5M to $10M additionally - if you don't get carried away.  Beefed up engines - that'll cost more.  Painting your name on the side will cost around $60K.

                         

                        Cheers
