age 12 13' Boston Whaler 40 hp Yahama I still have
age 17 17' Boston Whaler 90 hp Johnson I still have
age 28 28' Wellcraft Scarab excel 454 Mag. I still have

Hmm looks like I need to trade them all in and start over hehehe. I will say the 13' Whaler is still the funnest boat I have ever owned.

First boat- 8' Wooster Hellion. Little tunnel-hull made by a newly-formed marine division of RUBBERMAID! Had an old Mec 20 on it- rated for 8hp. That SOB hauled a$$- scared me to death every time I used it. Funny looking too
