Mine does pretty good, the only boating she has been exposed to is with me. I'm hoping to move into a bigger boat in 5 years or so. I would love to get her a ride on a couple different boats with speeds that vary to see how she does with faster boats than mine.

In the rougher water she likes the back seat so she can't see what water/swells/chop we are going to run through because she doesn't like the anticipation.

My wife loves boating, not crazy about the rough stuff but was in her first poker run last year and now wants something bigger and faster so the push is on,

Mine likes boating but isn't into running hard or going fast. After riding along on a couple poker runs, she just decided to bow out of them and only go on normal rides.

Kristy and I have a true passion for motorized vehicles, especially boating! But she does not share the addiction to OSO!
I have caught her browsing the classifieds for high end/fast Cats, her fav!

She drives the Baja, Cruiser, jet ski's, wrenches, buffs, and looks good doing it!

my significant other was unhappy when i let the 30 IMP go. she didn't understand aging TRS transoms and drives. she is part of the reason i bought my old Nova III back when it fell into my lap.
