Forget what your wife/girlfriend tells you. Bigger IS better. And it DOESN'T happen to everyone and it IS a big deal.

I love the 38 that we have now. I trailer it every weekend and once a month to LOTO which is 4.5 to 5 hours away. At this time the wife is pregnent and I am unloading and loading the thing by myself (unless a friend rides with me) but I am out every weekend and enjoying it as much as I can. Started with a 18' and have worked my way up to the 38' and hopefully will go even bigger one day, and I will still trailer it. I am building a new shed 80' long so I should have enough room I hope I will say this for my local lake I am way to big but oh well it fits.

I was thinking about selling my 302 for a while because it really doesn't fit my boating since we moved. I had it out all of one time last year. My 20 footer fits my boating needs better now, and is a helluva lot more cost effective.

Hey, it costs 2 be da boss.

Anyone who purchases a high end boat and doesn't consider increased fuel, towing capabilities, lift/slip fees and insurance and gets over their head reminds me of the old saying....
"If you need to ask the waiter how much is the special tonight you probably can't afford it".


As for me my 17ft. Lowe does just fine.
