Default OK members: What was your first boat?

OK gang lets have some fun! *** be honest. This should be a great profile of all of us.

First: What was your first boat & at what age were you?

Second: What is your current boat(s)& what is your profession?

Lets see who is really a player!

For me:
First Boat: It was a Minimax hydro (I made) with a 5hp Mercury OB (most fun to date in the lakes of Wisconsin)I was 14-15!

Current boat: 28 Scarab, 502efi, 12 ft Alum merc 15, Kaw jet ski *** I'm a Mechanical Engineer in the Medical field!

We did this quite a while back, but we have a LOT of new members since then. So....

1st boat was a br*** new 1972 14' Glastron tri hull with a 50 Merc. I was 8 at the time (it was Dad's boat, but I drove it more than he did). I still have this boat!! Great fishing boat. Runs like a watch. I've had various aluminum boats since then also (still have a 14' with a 9.9 Merc if anyone if interested!! Trailer included!!)

Current boat is a 24 Baja Sport with a soon to be 425-450 hp 454 (.030 over).

I am a Project Leader for a large automotive supplier.

First boat was a 1985 Baja Force 320 that needed MAJOR work! Bought it for a song *** never ended up finishing it. Parted the whole boat out *** doubled what I paid for it. That was at 21

Now I have a 30' 1984 ScarabII a n d I'm 28. A nd till today I was a cellular engineer for Motorola but I will be getting laid off later today *** will be starting as a machinist with my dad!
