I have had a few good ones along the way, but I am still haven't owned everything I want yet. I still need to own a 100 MPH cat. I think my long term boat will be a bigger version of what I have currently. A performance based center console. Would love a mid 30 foot yellowfin.

For me its more about income and income potential going forward.

None of which looks good for me. So I will stay with what I got and get something more reliable just not sure what. And to tell the truth the unreliable part has been the dam BRAVO drives, motors have been great.

Everyone says OB are reliable but old OB's break to, and I can't afford a new one. REFUSE to go into debt for anything. May have to go back to motorcycles for the speed fix. Cheap for the performance, and even though I am a little older (54) still don't want to slow down!

Still would love to own a big staggard V bottom at some point but doubt it unless I hit the Lotto. LOL

all of them have been my last, then another follows me home. fortunately I have been playing with little jets and v-drives so they dont take up as much space.

That is all I will own going forward more than likely but not too "Senior" just yet.

Thanks RR
This is a very interesting question. And dependent on so many things.
I thought my 1985 ChrisCraft Scorpion was the last. Bought new. Still have it in stall of boathouse. Same with 06 Mastercraft. Still have it. The 28ZXO is perfect for where we boat on the Trent Severn Waterway but not likely our last. Im soon to be 64 and not interested in slowing down. My buddy has a tri toon. Works for him but cant see that in my future. Chartered a Trawler in FLA a few years back. That was like death it was so slow Nice to do once.
Mid the real estate gods look favourably on me Id like to think I have another larger v bottom in me.

Maybe not my last boat but probably a forever boat.....I plan to retire young in a few years and add a new 55-70 foot sail catamaran, whatever basically is the biggest I feel comfortable with myself and one other person getting in and out of ports. I plan to travel the world for a good 5 -10 years, maybe more, just go with the flow. I of course need to learn how sail too, though with all of the tech now everything is practically controlled by computers. Can't wait. Maybe I can tow my speed boat behind me lol
