Yeah...this year hurt the wallet...gas prices sucked, burned over 1K in gas in 5 days at LOTO, then came home and scattered an upper. Rebuilt both drives for about 6K, plus 2K for the slip, over 1K for insurance...plus the payments...oh man... I think I'm gonna have a movement!

The same rules apply to boating as they do to racing, you hide receipts all over the place and then forget where you put them. It's the only way you can really enjoy either sport.

You could just put all of your money in T-bills for the rest of your life and give it away when you die....... not! You have to spend it on something, why not something you really enjoy. Ian

I'm with ya -

My wife thinks I'm nuts for working my a off at a MB dealership then spending every spare moment working on everyone's boats - but the rides are awesome - the $$ is good - and the comraderie is priceless.

Ever seen a Hurst pull a U Haul?? Ya won't at my funeral either!!

I've got my personal baloon note down to $65,000 bucks , I don't have a boat though. But I've got some sick a s s molds , a debt free boat company and I'm building me a boat next year. Not bad considering I was $ 400,000 in debt after being a boat dealer and racing.
