Can not even stick a pencil down in front of the engine. Stupid builders,
SPOT ON!!!

I'm going to put my worthless 2 cents in on this thread too. I'm 28, married, no kids (yet). The outlaw is my wife's boat, premarital property at that. I think she got off easy buying the boat, I've been the one to do everything to it, drag it around, gas, maintenance etc. But my problem this year is I don't have time to work on the boat AND go out in it. The boat is ready to go, but I can't. I guess it's just that time of life right now, I bought a new building for work, and I have bills to pay and people screaming at me to get there stuff done. When I say I have bills to pay, just the normal stuff, no ridiculous payments on a 2018 diesel crew cab with gold inlay all over it... I live within my means.

As far as the younger generation being obsessed with their phones and not interested in the outdoors, I think that is mostly true, but I am a little more sheltered from it being in Kentucky where hunting, fishing, ATV's and sports are a way of life for a lot of families.

At least the Verado is a good looking outboard. Can't imagine seeing all these CC's with those butt-ugly Evinrudes hanging off the back!!.
