Don't do it man. Once you get that number in your head, there's no plausible deniability.

Seriously, the nickel and dime stuff adds up so fast it'll make your head spin.

Just a rough guess with some of the numbers that I do know.

$37320 or there about.

Not including fuels or slip fees or repairs or food/drinks or any other accesories

I look at it this way...... Its a hell of a lot cheaper than an attorney for a murder trial.............Boating is one of the few things that keep me sane........

A 1986 24 skater, One blown powerhead, one trailer, Lower end service x 2, one speedo, 2 details, Ins., fuel and ams oil $2000, also need 2 new 34" cleavers. A smile on my sons face at 70 mhp and hands up in the air is priceless. BTW my wife is a CPA. Can't give out to many numbers.

Why are you guys counting the food and booze. For me, food and booze is a regular exspense not just for boating. Hell I am eating and drinking right now!

Payments, Insurance, Fuel, Truck used only to tow boat, poker run entry's, fuel, did I say fuel.

WOW = $30K

I'm embarrassed to see it in print. Never gave it that much thought before.

But we really use out boat. 400 Hours and counting, 25 poker runs and a LOT of fun and good friends.

You only live once, RIGHT?

Man I bet "Dave Ramsey" would have a field day with us.

Would my wife let me sell the boat? HELL NO

Who cares how much it cost. When you're runnin' through 3 ft'rs at 70+ with your hair on fire nothing else matters when you're "in the moment" and it takes some skill and concentration. The last thing I think about is money. I think about making money all the time and boating gets me not to think about it. If I had a lot more to spend I'd have a 46 Cigarette, If I had a lot less I'd have a 16 Donzi.
You can't put a price on this, f it, ya only live once.
