The boat is the easy part. You just buy the one that needs new power and has a bad transom and stringers, then you have nothing to fear.
Besides, I have this friend with a 24 pantera and some power siiting next to it on the floor. Someday that will all come together in the form of a boat. But the poor schmuck has no great lake. This way... I can invite him to visit but I don't have to let him in the house.
Ya... screw with me Tim.
