Default Then and Now

3000 posts and 10 years!
Thought I would start a thread based on it!

What did everyone have when they joined and what do they have now!?

Here is what I had back then and now!

Hmmmm the more things change... the more they stay the same!

I had the same boat that I have now... Been planning on changing it for years but other things keep coming up. Different truck though. The black Dakota with the rudolph nose was the old truck. Replaced by a 3500 Ram diesel

I used to be a dumba$$ who claimed he owned Cigarette, owned alot of different boats, when all I had was a dingy with a 3.5hp.
But now I have a 23' Chris Craft Stinger with a 7.4L big block, needs to be restored of course, but oh my how the times have changed!!

First joined OSO when they had the old, unmoderated board. Anyone remember the 'Mikey' guy from LOTO who claimed to have a 42 Fountain, triple 900SC's. He was always gonna kick everyone's ass!

-Had this 280 Baja from '90 to '02 Put close to 1000hrs on it. Incredibly reliable ride. (other than blowing a motor as soon as the hr meter turned 666, true!)

Now have this '02 Cigarette T/S Mystique, along with a 22 Pachange and a 17' Formula One

We had a 1996 280 Velocity, with an HP500, an 1995 F350 P/S CC Dually, now we have 2000 Nordic 35 Flame that's for sale, a 2007 Hydrostream Voyager XT, 2006 F-350 P/S CC SRW Lariat, and the 2006 Hustler 388. Also owned a little seadoo jet boat, that we bought from Bobthebuilder, but we sold that to make room for the hydrostream.

When I first joined OSO I had just sold my first boat and was shopping for my next boat. Ran my "next" boat for 10 seasons. Now I am going on season two with my latest ride.
