Exactly, I was getting out every other weekend or so the last two years and that wasn't enough. Weather, weddings, etc, etc. Started feeling guilty watching it collect dust so I sold it. And all I had was a 22' Donzi and I felt guilty! I couldn't imagine having a 40+ footer and not using it. I guess it's all relative!

Now that I have even a smaller boat we've had the best summer I can ever remember. I have boated EVERY Saturday and Sunday except one Sunday and out at least one weekday after work and usually two. Taken off at noon on a few Fridays too. If I would have known this summer would have been like this I would have bought a bigger boat! Hindsight is definitely 20/20.

Also, now my friends are no longer getting married! Now they are getting divorced!

I am going to be in the same situation soom if my boat does not sell. I just bought it in Feb. and now the Wife wants a nother kid. So the boat gets a new home or sets for 2 years? I can't stand to have something I can't use because of time/obligations.
Don't tell anyone but I own a sea doo also and use it just to get my fix during the week. PLEASE don't tell anyone!

No different one, but I hardly see that one out much either.

BULL ROAR gets run a bunch I saw her in the water a few times this past fall. I got to crawl all thru her it's an AMAZING Boat. My last 36 DRAGONS BREATH sat for years on a covered lift on lake Mead. Steve
