Honestly, I feel bad for the kid.

Don't get me wrong, I am not a trust fund baby. But there is some affluence in my family, and something like that just doesn't make sense, because successful people with money tend to teach their kids how to EARN their own, not just give it to them. I got a brand new more-than-entry-level car at 15 1/2 years old. My parents fronted it, and told me to get a job to start paying it off. Worked as a bag boy at a supermarket, and paid it off in 4 years. Made me fell real good, alot of satisfaction, and that taught me some fundamentals for my own success.

One thing to help your kid start a business if you got the $, or to send him to school, but to hand a 15 year old toy like that, it doesn't do any good for anybody.

Again, JMHO

Chris

Once they are done with the boat in the Bahamas for a few months it should be coming back to south FL.

You have to start boating somewhere... why not start with the right boat.

I thought the right boat to start boating with was a 13 whaler. After passing all the tests and getting liscensed.

That is one georgeous boat, I REALLY LIKE THE PAINT JOB AND INTERIOR. As to the individule that owns the boat, 15, I dont pass judgement, it is none of my business. As a father with children at that age, lets just say we do it differently in our house hold, each to his own. Congrats on the boat, it's a beauty. Jeff

Not much time before you are pumpin out the $ for freshining those things up... Turbines start looking good with those numbers.

Especially for three!! 1500$ a hour to run boat just for maintenance exspense on top of everything else,even if you were well to do thats still big bucks,you'd have to be filthy rich to own a toy like that,Smitty
