OOO YAA Very well said !!!
el indio posed a question to define fun in some other post. I was wondering what you guys find fun about boating.
Fun for me is going out on a sunny day with friends from around Lake Michigan running the boats wide open and listening to the sweet sound of the motors being in synch (I'm not a techno buff, that's just how it sounds to me). Fun is riding side by side with the gang and listening to the louder and more powerful motors of other boats make that pretty crackle noise as they go by. Fun is also that feeling of adreneline that hits you when the boat takes off a wave, flys through the air and gently returns you to water. After running around all day next to one another, taking pictures to post of the boats and of just goofing off, sitting down to break bread together. Fun is also getting to drive the boat but I need my throttleman because I just feel safer that way.
I'm sure fun for Dan it's girls in bikinis
Fun is being happy with what you have and secure in who you are.
So what's fun about boating for you??

Mrs. Candy.....My thoughts exactly except I'll be a bit more technical.....
The sound of a pair of 1000Hp mills rippin' by at 100 plus mph...and blowing my drink out of my hand!!
Taking that leisurely ride back to the marina at the end of the weekend...sun going down...motor purring along...if you call purring wide open pipes!!
Hanging out with a bunch of old friends and making new ones all in the name of boating!!
When nothing breaks ???
Just being on the water...
Damn, I can just sit at the dock and be happy.
With great power, comes great responsibility.
I particularly enjoy the cleaning, flushing, waxing, changing the oil and gearlube, fixing broken stuff, paying for fuel, paying the insurance, and answering idiot's questions at the marina.
It's pure pleasure.
But in all seriousness, there's nothing like the feeling of ripping along in some nice chop on a beautiful florida summer day. Makes you forget about the daily bullsht.

Good thing too, we just might be spending more time on the docks this yr.
Yeah, there is all that preparation stuff (and sometimes the occassionally breakage) I left out...that's like mindfulness to get you ready for the pleasure of being on or near the water.Originally Posted by CigDaze
