Default the bill

well sheri handed me a bill tonight for a year of boating. ouch! she told me if i wanted to sell the cig she had no problem with that. man married to a cpa is tuff. never short on words i told her i would love to sell the boat. but i think fatboy (38 topgun w/1000's) would cost us more to run in a year then our boat. she did not think that has to funny. so what is your yearly cost to run? payments, insurance, repairs, fuel, travel etc ???

Take the 103k I lost in the National deal and the previous ripoff and amortize that over the last 3 years and you understand why I am just now starting to shop again......

Todd are you kidding, did she really do that. Remind her she was almost as gung-ho as you in getting it. Cosmic I am with you I keep telling Mr P I am going to total the cost up, but frankly I am afraid to

Slandrew I guess it depends on what you are counting, if you have payments on the boats, (like we do), insurance, lots and lots of money for parts, storage, gas, poker run fees, overnight dockage, bar bills and the countless hours Mr P works on it, the cost could be HUGE and we just have a slug boat, can't imagine what those guys in the 100 MPH club spend but I guess all is realative.

Todd, this is a bad time to pose this question, when our credit card bill came a week ago I let it sit unopened for a few days until I got my courage up to look

$24,000.00 and the boat still only has 1 out of two working engines. I also just got news that I need to have the blower rebuilt for the secound time this year (Same blower, I question if mechanic #1 ever had it rebuilt).
This does not include attorneys fee's

I have a firm policy: ANY receipts under 500 bucks (some of you may have to adjust that figure up a bit ) doesnt come home with me... Makes my boating MUCH more economical

However, compared to what my bar bill, mistress's, psychiatrist and divorce atorney would cost, boating is cheap...
