Pete,

I couldn't agree more, I grew up on the river we had a camp at the mouth Blind River and Maurepas, we would put in at Vals god that was the early 70's, I have ran everything on the river from a 14' aluminum boat, which I had to JB weld the rivits before each outing so I didn't sink. I am just as happy on the river in a 14' or a 50', yes there are always bigger and badder on the water, but I go out there for me, not to impress all the little trust funds roid heads, they just thik its about getting drunk and showing off for the hot little pieces of river azz out there, I just hope they don't ruin it for all the true boaters, I actually prefer to go out during the week or in the winter months, hardly anyone out there and you can just enjoy the beauty of our lakes and rivers...

Well let's face it, most of these new high dollor rig's are gotten by people that have far more than what the average guy can afford. That is nothing new.

Performance boaters on a budget probably have always looked at the older boats because that is all they could afford. As such you had to put your sweat and blood into getting it back into shape and making it your own.

I may not be as old as some others, but I have been around these types of boats almost all my life. There has always been the group that had the new boat and about the only thing they knew how to do was turn the key and push the throttle. The boat was more of a status symbol to show how much money they had. Alot of them were total ass hats but not all, some of them were pretty cool people.

Then there was your people that would roll up in the old cig half torn apart pulled by an old ford. Those guys were mostly down to earth just happy to be out boating. They knew that someday they would get that old back into shape. But you still had your guys that would act like they were god or something because they had a big boat.
