Question What did you do before you got a boat?

For me, before I learned how to fly my Bullet 130, I took lessons on a BMX bike.
I eventually became a Pro-Rider and raced in Florida, Ct. and NJ. The good 'ole days.... No responsibilities and No Fear!
I warmed up with the cooler for a Bunny Hop stunt.

BMX then later Motocross,Enduros and Hare Scrambles on dirt bikes. When I turned 14 it was cars. 77 Trans Am took a lot of time to build. Then 4x4 trucks and Kawasaki Ninjas (crashed and broke bones).After that I got into sailing.(for real) Then powerboats.

Same here.
I took a 68 Irwin from St Pete to St Thomas. I was delivering it for a Charter Business. The first 7 days went great. After that I couldn't wait to get back into a fast boat.
We got there in about 9 to 10 days....

Snowmobile Drag Racing was my addiction and it took all summer to pay off the winter credit card bills.I also Worked on a few different Grand Prix Inboard Hydroplane Teams in the summer months.

Had a few Harleys, after getting off Motocross and rice-rockets.

I thought that Harleys were an expensive hobby until I found boats.

Now I think in tens and hundreds of thousands, instead of tens and hundreds.
