I'm kinda an old school guy. I like the classics like this:

But, that doesn't mean I wouldn't jump on a 382 w/500's or better!

If I won a lottery I wouldn't be worried about any boat....... I would be trying to preserve the winnings so I wouldn't be one of the sorry saps that has to go back to work when all the money is gone...........

I have personally known two lottery winners (one double winner 4mm/ then 20mm, the other was 80MM Powerball) and both stories ended with death, divorce, bankruptcy. Their lives had about 15 minutes of good times and then years of aggravation, fighting, drug issues, lawyers etc. No time for boating for this crew........

My personal rule with lotteries is that I never play any game that can't change my life (scratch tickets for 5K, draw games for 25K, etc) and I never play a jackpot less than my age so as I get older I play less! In FL the lottery starts at 3mm, that is 100K a year (65K after taxes) for 30 years or a lump sum after taxes for about 1.1mm. 65K a year I couldn't quit my job unless I wanted to seriously downsize my lifestyle, the 1.1 lump sum would be a short term windfall but that could be spent real quick then back to work.

Now 150MM Powerball then I am in the game!

Wait, why would you need the lottery for this? The fun in talking about lottery wins is the crazy chit you could splurge on!

I've played the lottery one time. It was when that Jack Whittaker guy won the biggest jackpot ever. A buddy and I drove to Kansas and bought a few tickets. We had it all spent by the time we got there.

For me it would most likely be this:
Sunsation F4 w/700's

3. I always loved Rum Runner....with a BIG truck to match.
