The only thing that would have kept my missus happy boating once the kid was born would have been a bigger boat. Something around 150 feet. 🙂

I know it doesn’t really matter what I think but the more pics I see of your boat, the more I’m starting to like the paint 🙂

Always check the listing dates on that website, they’re not good at deleting old ads.
