First boat: 1972 Chrysler C/C, 55 H.P. Chryser O/B. I was 12, and I bought the boat with "paper route" money. True story. My dad had to trailer it home for me.

First boat..............

In 1994 (20 yrs old), my uncle gave my brother & I 1980 starcraft fishmaster (aluminum) with a 140 hp merc on it. The floor was rotted in some places, steering was frozen, and it hadn't run in years. Anyways, a little work to everything but the motor (that just started right up after sitting all that time), and is still running today,we have it up north & do some salmon fishing with it.

This started it all, cause some guy in an older baja was being a smart a$$ & asked if we had enough motor on it......well lets just say, later that evening we saw him again, and with the lake as smooth as it was he had no comments at the dock later that evening - lol

Current boat: 1994 31 ft scarab

Boat for Sale: 1985 wellcraft Nova II, no engines (hope I don't get nailed on this)

I don't know what it was!LOL I bought it for 20bucks and a case of Bud Light. It was an aluminum 18ft V-hull with a 90 horse Merc old-style hood. Floor and bootom were soft. I figured what the ****. I scrapped the aluminum for cash. Traded the outboard for a dirt bike and built a motorcycle trailer out of the trailer. I thought it was a hell of a deal. Now I'm looking for another boat.

1978 19' Checkmate Convincor. Merc 260 IO, it was a little rocket..............in flat water that is. In light chop, it went from the little rocket to the boobie shaker . In heavy chop, women would hold their breasts and give me a look like........Slow down you SOB.
It was time for a upgrade when I noticed my boobies shaking
