In re Moore

Above median debtors' boat payments were not necessary but nevertheless properly deductible.
Procedural posture: 
A creditor holding an unsecured nonpriority claim against the debtors arising out their credit card accounts filed an objection to confirmation of the debtors' chapter 13 plan, challenging the debtors' taking of a monthly deduction of $ 263.36 on Official Bankr. Form B22C for a debt payment secured by the debtors' boat, motor and trailer, arguing that the deduction was not a necessary expense under 11 U.S.C.S. § 1325(b)(3).
