What does your significant other think about boating?

My wife loves it. She likes the speed (more often than not) as long as the water isn't super nasty like a big holiday weekend or after the shootout on LOTO. We typically run 40-50 avg speed when out.

Unfortunately, my finace has gotten a taste of the Cat life and the Sunny won't suffice forever...she's already asking when we can get a MTI or a Nor-tech....FML!!!!

My wife's a cruiser queen too. She said the next boat 'MUST have an 11ft beam'. Notice I haven't sold the Baja yet? She does love to boat and helps dock / clean etc. but has the same rev limiter the other guys talked about. She keeps her eyes on the speedo like a hawk. Over 40 and I'm gettin' whacked and screamed at. Go figure, I like boating alone / with the guys sometimes. Only chance I really get to whip the Baja a little harder.

fiancÚ loves the sunsation but hasn't like anything over 60. I got the boat up to 80 yesterday with her in it and she said " that wasn't bad at all, but 70 is fast enough" she wont even get in the skater and is always eying the 40' cruisers

My wife is a real trooper, because of having 2 discs replaced in her neck in 2006, she still goes boating, but only in the 388. The hydrostream is to rough for her neck. And she allows me to self-medicate my boating diease!
Everything is for sale @ a certain $$
