    My first boat was a 1978 Switzer...w/no power. All the sign said was -FREE BOAT- So I took it down the camp road and said"hey everybody look what I got for FREE!". 2 years, $18,000+ and 3 Merc powerheads later I had a 75+mph hot rod. It was a bare shell, not even a wire left in it when I started,and the first thing I had to do was rebuild the surprise, I'm sure, if anyone is familiar with the Switzercrafts of the 60' & 70's. Still have this hull w/ no power & the "blue tarp syndrome"(wife loves this lawn ornament!)...
    2nd boat 1997 Donzi ZX22 w/454mag-traded for AT28
    3rd boat 2004 Starcraft Auroura 2000 Deck boat w/ Merc 150 XR6(last ob from Switzer)-still own
    4th boat 1999Active Thunder 28 w/t350magMPI's & Bravo's-still enjoying(mostly)

    Oh,& I am a custom homebuilder w/nothing to do!!!
    Anybody need a new roof, siding or a deck/addition?? "Need Work"-will work for gas money!!

    1st boat was a 24' 1989 Sunsation Rocket. With the 330hp bravo 1 set up. It was a fun boat, I was 25 when I bought it and 17 years latter I still see it at the marina next to mine.
    I am a plant manager at a automotive/aerospace tooling shop.

    first boat was a 1983 15ft Boston Whaler with a 70hp Merc. That thing would fly. I still have it, saving it for my son.

    Our First boat in 2002 was a '91 Powerquest 230 Conquest.
    Really loved that boat. Like PQ enough to upgrade to a 340 Vyper.
