I'm curious to know how prevalent it is to finance a boat or whether people tend to buy their boats with cash? I'm adding a poll and I'm going to set it such that you can't see who voted for what.

Yeah if I waited until I could comfortably pay for a boat cash I'd be an old man. I try to be responsible with money but I also have to experience this life I'm living otherwise I'll have regrets. I've been lucky that up until now my dad has always had a small boat I had access to as if it was my own but because its kept 2.5 hrs away its a bit of a production to go and use it. I'm so happy I got my new skiff because I can just take it out of the garage and disappear on my days off. I've also had an opportunity to spend more time with my own dad since he recently retired. Hopefully taking the kids out this Friday it will be their first fishing outing on the new boat. I have taken them for a few joy rides. I should have done this 10 years ago!
You get only so many trips around the sun. Make the best of them for you and your family.
