First boat, 1992 Chris Craft Cuddy, 5.0 OMC. This was a decent boat. Used it for six seasons *** sold it for a good price.

Current boat, 1998 24 Superboat, 454 Mag. Just got it, only used it twice, so far I love it.

First family boat I remember was a 1962 Correct Craft 17 foot straight inboard. Fiberglass with a 318 Chrysler. Fast boat in the days of white Merc. "fire and go" outboards.

First boat purchased was a 17 foot Checkmate low profile open bow with a 150 Mercury Black Max. Fast as long as water was smooth. Learned fine art of chine walking.

Just bought a 98 312 Formula Fastech. 3 inboards, 3 houseboats, a 25 Formula and a 27 Fountain in between.

Well I assume we are talking power boats, so MY first one was a 15ft hydrostream with a 1500XS that was modified. It was a blast to drive and I hope to run it a couple times this year before I sell it. It has not been in the water for about 3 years.

New boat is a Formula 302. Work in progress

First boat: (27 years old) A nightmare 1987 22' Larson Senza - spent more time cursing, being towed, and wrenching on the damn thing than I did driving it. I'm still undergoing therapy because of that boat.
Second boat: 1988 32' Pachanga T/502's -- what a sweetheart of a boat...never a problem with her.
