My first was 78 Glastron Carlson CVX-20 jetdrive powered by ugh Ford 460,but it was a pretty cool boat!I fell in love with those as a teenager after watching James Bond 'Live or Let Die'.Anybody remember that?

First boat was a Donzi 16 with 5.7 L. I was 23.
Current boat is a 29 Fountain with single HP500. I'm a naval architect (working in the big-ship end of the business, not boats).

Sorry, I have been dealing with the F&*king telco's trying to upgrade some internet connections. You want to talk about poor service and incompetent people.

I see you are still posting like Traviss.

First boat was a 93 Scarab Sprint, came with a 4 cyl, drove it a year and put in a 350 Chevy. Still have the boat, it's a blast to drive and it is very inexpensive on gas. Also have a Chris Cat.

First boat was a 12 foot john boat on a trailer. I think I paid $100 for it when I was about 12 or so. It got washed away by a flash flood about a year later. Now I am on my 6th and 7th boats.

One is a Tx19 jetboat with a healthy 468, custom paint, and all the goodies.

My pride and joy is a 2000 23 Wyatt Tunnel with a 454mag.

I am a Chiropractor in private practice since 1995
