What does your significant other think about boating?

If I'm not in the car when it heads for the lake, the wife will leave w/o me.
Some people are like Slinkies - Not really good for anything, but they
bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

My wife loves boating too. Our motivation is different. I love the boats, the ride, the performance, all of the gearhead aspects. My wife loves to bake in the sun.

Although she is really quick to call me a ***** if I let someone pass me without at least trying them. Her heckling is what led to me being outrun by a pontoon boat. Granted it was a twin OB pontoon and went at least 75 but I still had to go back and tell all my friends I got waxed by a pontoon boat.

My ex-wife hated boating, but my girlfriend loves it! She even enjoys her duties as my line & fender biotch! among other things...
Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

Loves it. Always wants to have a Go-Fast. I am not even sure she'd upgrade to a 40SS.

She would some more "amenities" down stairs (and a little headroom). I think a NorTech 50V would be perfect for her; too bad she married a poor guy!

My wife loves performance boats, not a big of cruisers & she loves to go fast. I very rarely hit the water without her.

My wife loves it, other than the constant eye out for the next one.

LOL. I have the bruises on my left shoulder to agree with that post.

It's all good up to 80 and then it gets risky to my health.

My wife loves all of it as long as I give her time to tie her hair back before putting throttles on the dash.

My fiancee loves being on the boat, she digged the 21 Sea Ray I had. Shes working on her doctorates so she dosent have much time and hasnt been out on the new boat which is almost twice as fast and 100 times as loud . She dosent like the rough stuff and gets sea sick pretty easy but she toughs up and deals with it.

She has two weeks off and told me I had better be planning a trip for us, as long as she wants to go fast I think shes a keeper.
