First was a little plastic 2 man fishing boat with only a trolling motor, I was about 10-11. The my first real boat I was 23 and it was a little 17 ft IMP Apache. Had a 3.8 v-6 w/ OMC drive. Now I have a 1989 Century Ultra II with twin 454's and bravo 1 drives. I do fiberglass and gel coat repair for a marina.

First one I owned not a family boat was a '86 Formula 272 ls with small blocks and alpha drives. Still think I should own another one with big blocks and bravos.

First boat was a 1976 Switzer shooting star with a tower of power on back! What a handful. Currently a 30ss Sonic that hasnt seen the water in two years.

First boat was a 14' Mirrorcraft with a 9.9. Only had it for 3 weeks until I fell in love with a mint Glastron GT150.
