haha I did that in 93, told the wife well she was with me it ran rough coming back from block island end of the season. so I said we need a merc 502 so I sold the 330hp and bought a merc 502 then every 2 years up graded it until it was a 509 650hp

Since zero is nothing... I'm not really lying, it's more of a fib for her own protection. If she know what i really spent she would have a heart attack. We would have matching Defibrillators at the very least!

This if for her own good! It makes me feel good that I am so concerned with here health

I almost forgot!! I also you "I traded some stuff for it". Money is stuff, isn't it?
I also do that about the money.

We had a deal:

1) She bought the lake house
2) I bought the TopGun.

Payments(then) were about equal.

After I year I was out 100k thanks to National Marine and she had 160k in equity.

I am as dumb as I look.

I had a girl friend that wanted me to buy a house for us to live in by seneca mo,, and when i finished a job that i made alot of money on and a few days later she came in the shop and me and brad are looking at 4 brand new turbos sitting next to my boat she says.... how much did those cost.?? my answer......
they cost the down payment on the house in seneca...
few min later she had packed her clothes and was leaving....
probably had the wrong priorities in my younger years....
now I would not only have spent the down payment money on the turbos but the whole price of the house....

My wife was already into boats. When we bought a "big" boat I was proactive and told her this was the worst "investment" we will ever make. It will cost us money but we both enjoy the hobby. After two years of spending $5k per on preventative maintenance she's still on board. Needless to say, I'm not putting much into the boat this off season. Don't want to push my luck.

My wife has horses, make my boat look like a bargain. For what she spends I could have Sterling on speed dial. Doug
