First boat I owned, 10 foot sea flea I built when I was 12. Big Bad 9.9 merc on it. At 17 I bought a 16 sidewinder with a 175 merc v6, wild a$$ ride. Then a 22 pad vee called an indy with a 460 king cobra package(POS), the for a very breif time( 2 months) a 1986 formula 272 that had been abused( nothing but trouble) then a 1990 power quest( power play) 230 with several different engines until I bought my current ride, a 2000 Eliminator Daytona/500efi/ bravo drive and now with a warmed up 500efi and a black hawk drive.

First boat was a fisher aluminum with 40 yamaha. 2nd boat is a skeeter sx176 with yamaha 115, I still own it and use it for fishing. My current boat is a 1996 scarab 29 with 502 mpi, and I love it. I Just need to get my boat lift installed so I can use it daily. I'm 35, live on lake conroe, and teach automotive technology at houston community college.

My father has had bass boats since I was born......At 22 bought new 26 ft. Bayliner
( never do that again). Owned various cruisers up to 35 Sundancer. A new 2000 21 Chris Craft showed me what 60mph in a 22 degree bottom would do. Now at 33 own a 98 312 Formula. (8 boats in 11 years)

First boat I bought was an '87 32 Sea Ray Pachanga w/454's. Bought it 5 years ago when I was 28. Still have it but I have not used it this year.

Second boat which I bought this past May is a '89 42 Sonic w/540's.

As for the occupation, when I bought the first boat I was a Steamfitter Local 602 HVAC tech. Now I am the service manager for the same company.
