    My first

    My first boat was a 10' flat bottm race boat with an open transom. It had to be driven on ones knees. At idle the 'cokpit' would fill up with water. Once you started to give it some gas, the water would drain. It first had a 7.5HP Johnson with tiller throttle. Within the first month, we put a Merc Hurricane with a deadmans throttle on it. My grandparents owned a resort on Bangs Lake in a far-north suburb of Chicago called Wauconda. One of my brothers friends took it out without me knowing it and proceeded to drive it into the seawall, turning it into splinters. The Merc broke off the transom and ended up on the patio. I still have that little motor somewhere...................... I was 10 years old at the time.

    A little 13.5 foot boston whaler with a 60 on it.. Then my parents redid it so that it was a center console with a 45 evinrude with full trim. At the age of 12 we were kicking up a hell of a rooster tail trailing my dad's 30 foot Center console with triples..

    It was great because we both had the exact same graphics on the side. My parents always had a boat for us up through college. Our last boat being a 36 Concept with twin 300's. Our parents always took care of us.

    My favorite was boring dad's 30 spectre with twin 540's. That would scoot up until Blake and I blew a drive. We were on restriction after that.

    My first boat was a 13-foot, all-aluminum Feathercraft. It had a wornout 50hp Merc OB. It was small, but we could water ski behind it.

    My second boat was a 16-foot, fiberglass, closed-bow, purple, Sidewinder (out of California). It had a 90hp Merc OB.

    I am on my fifth boat, a 31-foot Cigarette Bullet with twin HP500's!

    Clay, my dad had a 15 foot Feathercraft aluminum boat with an Evenrude 75 on it in the early to mid 60"s. You sure could water ski behind it.
