You could always tell her you are making up for the Manhood issue she already knows about.

The purchase gets approved by the house CFO. After that, all upgrades and maintenance gets done with a secret fund. She has no idea what it costs to run this thing and I think we are all happier in the end this way.

The head and better sleeping arrangements have always been a plus on her side. The fact it goes 20 mph faster never really came up.

Me too, i can afford it and i am spending my money not hers, plus she loves boating so that helps. There will be a fight over the next one though when i go from center console to 40 skater!

Try explaining to your wife that you want a new set of drives ( imco's ) for the new boat you just got a month before, see how that goes over.

I'll be curious if she notices

That's funny! When I come out to play your usually in hiding.

I plan to play but fuel prices keep going up it may only be once!

True story; after complaining for 20 plus years about not having a Cigarette wife said " I'm tired of hearing about it, if you donít go buy the damn thing I will" Concerned that she might order wrong power and color, caught quick flight to Miami ordered boat five days later.

Seemed like the right thing to do.

Persistence does pay off!

Cheers!
