Default Favorite Boat you've owned?

I'm still boat shopping, and I'm at the stage of fighting between what I WANT, and what is PRACTICAL.
But, I 'm living on WANT instead of PRACTICAL.
I WANT a Mistress, PRACTICLE is probably more like a 28'ish Cig, Formula, or a beak or Baja.

So, now a 28SS, or a Formula comes to mind.

But, the question is - what boat did you have the most fun with?
I've had a 25' Baja, a 19 Wellcraft cuddy, and a 27' Wellcraft cruiser/cuddy.
I had more fun on the 25' Baja than any.
I've seen many on this board that have "moved up", and later see they're old boat for sale, and comment that they miss "that boat".
28' sounds like a manageble size, and might even be more fun (and less work) than a 38'.

Any thoughts??

My next boat will be my favorite one.

Every boat I have had or will get will never be good enough no matter what it is.

Remeber there are plenty of 1yr old $500K boats for sale, maybe even those are never good enough as well.

To tell you the truth, my life was much simpler without a boat.

Is it summer yet?

I love my tiger tim, but you can go wrong with an 89-91 311. That boat was a blast, had everything needed + family convenience.

I loved my old 311 Formula. I had it for 11 years and it was a great boat. I wish I still had it. My second favorite boat was a 28 Sonic single engine. I only had it for 3 years, but it was a great boat. Joe Murray

Had the Most fun with my 98 25' Checkmate

Loved My 288 Sunsation.
The Baja we won't Go there.
The Formula was nice but not my style
The Rinker was a toy

My Chaparral is a pimp pad on the water now

All in all I miss my checkmate years of fun. I was young and I could drink more and the women were even younger
