14 ' jon boat, 15' Bassmate with 40 Mariner both owned by dad. Then I took the plunge and bought a Thoroughbred with twin modded 260s'. Now a 25' Talon with twin promaxes. I thought custom Harleys were an expensive hobby!

What got me going was my mom's cousin's 18'. I have no idea what make or model it was. A mid or late 70's thing, it had a 427 chevy, ran 60-65 mph, was fun as phuck, and to boot, really dirty, ugly, orange with dry to the tips exhaust and named "The Swine".

My own was a 16' Fletcher from '89 that got a 150XR2 bolted on, went 60'ish mph. I came across this boat again earlier this spring, and thougt about buying her back, as some may remember. Upon closer inspection, found out she was completly rotten in the transom and rear bottom. Man that hurt. She gave me and my friends some great summers, and was a good fun boat.
