I mentioned to a close pal that I’m considering renting a yacht to hold a floating festival in a combined celebration for the two milestones. The response was a somewhat snarky and equally surprising, “How much will all that cost? Okay … Debt Free Diva”.

The two most common ways are creative financing (often called a lease) and repairs.
