    Pool owners and Boat owners

    Since many of us pool owners can't get enough water sports, are any of you also boat owners? I am.

    I own a bass/ski boat. One's a hole in the water you throw money in, the other is a hole in the ground you throw money in.

    I used to have a 26 foot SeaRay when I lived in Fort Lauderdale but I sold it to buy my camper.

    Spent half the day on my boat, yesterday. Sunny, 79 degrees, 5-10 mph winds. It was great!

    no boat

    Don't have a boat, but I seem to spend an awful lot of time working on my buddy's Cigarette runner, first it was a 4000 watt stereo - yes, that said 4000 - it's nuts, then rewiring the whole thing, then a jack plate install etc etc.

    Never really get out on it though

    Did someone say Boat?

    We have a 30' Sailboat on a local lake. I jokingly say "I have two holes in the water in which to throw money, one on the lake for me and one in the back yard for my girls".....

    We have a bass boat. I have been on it twice since we got it and hubby has only been on it about 4 times total. Needless to say, it makes a wonderful backyard lawn ornament!

    Had a boat until I bought my Harley and the boat took a backseat to the bike. Now I have a pool and the bike has been feeling a little neglected lately.

    Hmmm...I had written (and thought I posted) a response some weeks ago. But now it's gone??? I wonder if the post never got thru.


    We had three boats at the same time...once upon a time. My bass boat, our express cruiser and a small inflatable with a 9.9 for "harbor hopping".

    What happened? Kids I just needed more space (in the garage with the bass boat) and time (we just couldn't make the trips down to our boat like we used to...and I just couldn't keep from keeping it clean every week. It just turned into alot of work during the week for no time to use it.)

    it was just time to get rid of them.

    happy boatin'!

    Some posts were lost during the server changeover and subsequent upgrades... sorry 'bout that!

    Good choice. (The boats will be less trouble)
