My first boat was a 73 Sportcraft tri hull bow rider, it took about a mile to get it on top with the merc. 120 IO ! I was about 21. My first new boat was a 82 19ft. Rankin cuddy with a Merc. 420 IO. In 84 I found a deal on a left over 83 23ft.ChrisCraft Scorpian! I now have a 1986 30ft.Velocity with 1100HP. I bought new, a 1986 19ft. Supra ski boat I bought in 97 and a 1990 Searay Sundancer I bought in 02 ! Next year a pair of JetSkis and I think Ron's Navy will be complete!!! OK the pier is about full !!! I am in the steel erection business ! Ron, OPA P4-33 STEELINTIME

Family's first boat was a 1956 or so chartruise green 16' outboard with a Mark 25 Merc. I believe it was one of the early fiberglass boats. No bow lift, used to put blocks in the rear, plowed anyway. A first class POS My first boat was a Kindsvater 17' flat bottom drag boat with a 482 BBC with a solid flat tappet cam and a TR2X tunnelram. Great ski boat!

First boat 1978 Glaspar tri hull, Merc 228/Alpha, later hotrod 350 Chevy. Next boat 1985 Formula 272, twin Merc 260/Alpha. Third boat 1989 Formula 311, twin Merc 454 Mag, latter blowers, Gils, ect. 1998 bought a Sonic 28ss, single Merc 502Mag as a second boat for my daughter and son in law. Sold the Sonic and bought a 1997 Black Thunder in 2000. Spent 3 years re-rigging with #5's, 750 EFI engines from Total Marine. Along the way sold the 311. Just about have the Black Thunder like I want it. Might be my last boat. I am 55, and a Fluid Power and Electrical Specialist for Motion Industries, an industrial supply house. A fancy way of saying salesman. We boat @ Lake Cumberland, KY & Panhandle of FL.

1929 Horace E. Dodge watercar... an old woody type boat... what a slug... I bought it on a whim from a girlfriends father... he had a boner for wood boats...this guy had an Owens... another slug...I filled, caulked and sealed, spent a lot of time with spar varnish..... the performance was dismal at best... sold it later to his business partner...
