Default She talked me into a cruiser!

Sorry guys.......guess I am going to have to find a new home to chat. A place where I can talk about macerators and aft cabins. A DIY on how to stretch a camper top or rebuild a winlass anchor.

However, kinda looking forward to having a shower, generator....and a/c

Taking a break, but I will be back. It does have a big block with bravos.......think she would notice if I put big power in it? hahahah

And please, wave when you pass me and rev the engines in memory of a fallen go fast guy

We bought a cruiser 2 yrs ago with all the luxuries and love it. The Fountain hasn't seen daylight since. I spend more time on a cruisers/sailors forum than I do here now.
Times a changin.

Made the move a few years ago. Nothing like firing up the gen and hanging out in A/C comfort

At least you have a boat instead of her wanting a bigger house and no boat!
