jump in pool pool vs. boatBy Patty Bednarcyk

Torn between buying a pool or buying a boat? We think you’ll appreciate this light-hearted
 comparison of two popular, but very different, forms of family 
recreation.

Pool vs. Boat:

  1. You don’t need a trailer
hitch, a tank of gas or a four-wheel drive vehicle to use your
 pool.
  2. Your neighbors will never
 complain about you leaving your pool parked in front of your
 house.
  3. The Coast Guard will
 never write you a ticket for allowing too many 
people into your pool.
  4. Your day at the pool will never
 be ruined because of a dead boat battery.
  5. You’ll never have
 to cram family, life jackets, pets and an ice
 chest into a hot car just to go use your pool.
  6. You’re not likely to 
get arrested if you suddenly decide to go “au naturale” in your pool.
  7. A pool will IMPROVE the 
look of your home, rather than detract from it.
  8. A pool may actually go
 UP in value over time, not down.
  9. Your new pool may
 actually cost less than a boat!
  10. You’ll be 
sad the day you sell your pool.

Well, maybe I’m biased, but I know from experience that a pool brings a long lasting enjoyment that can be shared with friends and family for years and years.
