Gtbpappy,

On your experience from lightstream, when borrowing $60,000, what would be a typical loan:

Total months?

Typically interest rate with 825 score?

I am currently debt free, but recently paid off 2 installment loans.

I do realize that you are not the loan company, but it sounds like you are a thousand times more familiar with them than I am. I have always paid cash for my sizable collection.

Thank you for any help and information that you are willing to share, and I will not hold you to it, just a guessamation would help me a lot to make a decision.

Thank you,

Tribrothers in Texas

I was just looking at lightstream, and for $60,000, 36 months is 2.49% up to 84 months at 4.69%. We have a lot of people try and get loans at banks, cu's ect. Lightstream approved them in 1 hour, most unsecured, and money in their account in 1 day. Wish I got a referal from them as much as we send them, but it's fast for the customers, and pretty much know the sale is going through. Good luck on a purchase!!!

The season is about over. All boats are off the lake and the level has dropped 12 feet for dam inspection. There is a hydro station at the far end of the lake and they draw it down every 5 years for inspection. We'd like to get out one more time to enjoy the leaves. I have a map I update each year where the rocks are and track the lake level.

We are trying to plot an exit and reentey but the rocks are waiting to grab us. Our normal dock ramp has rocks at the end to help get trailers out of the water but it does not work for the 7 ton DUKw. Look at those old stumps ready to hang up an axle.

She still for sale and I'm negotiable. It was a great and safe year.

Take care.

i`m not sure what you mean. but it looks like you can get out of the water everywhere. or do you get stuck in the mud?

those stumps could be a nasty suprise but i do`nt think they will hurt a swimming dukw. maybe the CTIS system. they can pull off an airhose.

The banks are steep with loose rocks and the newly exposed floor where more level is mud. I'm just cautious without a backup craft.

Our girl is sold. In the last 3 years she has brought so many smiles and stories. Of the 100 vehicles I have owned she has been the most special. This has only been possible by the help of everyone here and especially Steve.

God speed and God bless America

The world is changing and the men and their machines i admire are becoming forgotten. Keep this alive.
