Guess I will start this and see what comes of it. I would like to start by saying that there is no best two days for me. I have taken great care with my boat and treat it like others treat their cars, hot rods, watches, pinball machines. I have had and will always continue to have fun on it. So I will post some pics and see what happens with this thread. And as always questions are welcomed.

Had one for about 10years and enjoyed it for the most part, but got that out of my system.
Discovered something even better....friends with boats. Just pitch in for gas and let someone else deal with the headaches.

I still own a couple kayaks and use them a decent amount throughout the year.

I was recently given a bass boat from a friend. It has sat unused in my driveway for 2yrs. Just don't feel like dealing with it.

Here is my 15ft Seadoo boat and a few of my other toys.

I was thinking about a jet ski this year but POTC takes that out of the equation!
Wife loves the water as much as I do. And she will not take my boat out because she is afraid of something happening to it. So she has her own 18 ft pontoon boat. We also have two kayaks and a paddle board and a 5 ft by 8 ft dock shed full of equipment!!!!!!!

My little digny. Lol
No I’ve got 23 ft open bow. Love Michigan summers on the lake.

Owned a couple in the past. Nicest was a Supra 24v Sunsport wakeboard boat. Sold it maybe 12 years ago. I just won a boating club membership at a fundraiser the other day for $5k. For one year. Use any boat any time and only pay for gas. They pick up insurance and supply all the toys. Proceeds went to a good cause and I’ll have Maintenence and worry free boating for a year. No depreciation. No cleaning the boat when I’m done. Sounds too good to be true. Hopefully it pans out that way too!

Awesome looking boat Phil !

#11 3 years ago

Thanks SuperBee! Took a lot of work. I have the original Johnson RD-17 25 HP electric start motor, but felt bad at Shows in pristine water with a 2-stroke. The old motor runs like a scalded dog though, nothing like it.
North Carolina-based Barbour Boatworks sent a lot of these up North, there might be one near you. They usually have thousands of coats of poorly applied paint and rotten top planks. But Barbour built a great hull, solid mahogany sides and stern, quality marine ply bottom.

#12 3 years ago

Do these count?

20180219_203724 (resized).jpg

If so, I've got this ready for my next build (56 inch apache).

I own a boat, haven't seen it since Oct 2016 when I winterized it. Come to think of it I should ride by and make sure its still at the storage facility. They keep billing me monthly, so I guess its still there right? Daughter plays travel softball and high school ball, no time for the lake
Here is a picture, if you see it on lake Lanier in Georgia, let me know as I'm pretty sure it ain't me driving it and its been stolen.
And a picture 8 years ago when we had time to go play on the water, back when daughter was 8. Never mind the Mariah seats in a Celebrity boat, as I built this boat from a sunken boat and pieced it together with free stuff.

Yeah, I always go for the sailboats. There is a 39' Columbia sitting around calling my name right now. I'm trying to ignore it, but luckily, I have pinball games making a racket to keep my attention.

#19 3 years ago

Sailboats are bigger money pits than pinball machines, $650 for new auto pilot controls and $1k for new battery bank and that was just this last month. but you have to keep stuff up if you are sailing open water.

Crownline boats are so nice.I have a 180BR.

Quoted from Platypus:

Yeah, but there are few things that make me feel as good as the moment the mainsail fills and the boat heels over. Just give me a tiller, a breeze and a horizon to shoot for!

Sorry, but im totally lazy and all boats must have full motor power. Sailboats are just too much work lol. (some of you do have sweet sailboats though ) .

A quote from my father in law, "The only thing better than owning a boat, is having a father in law with a boat". 2 year old 33' Formula with twin 350's and the joystick thing. Makes the pinball hobby seem like collecting pogs, Alf pogs.

Formula makes an excellent boat. I have one as well and love it! Mine is the one all the way to the right. The joystick makes it easy as all get out to handle.

Here was my boat,Taylor 20BR ran 74 mph (since sold)

taylordone002 (resized).jpg

When I bought it it was set up for the wrong engine (Bow tie) I fixed that.

I had to make all new seats and got them redone in the original pearl with diamond stitch also had to put a new floor in it.

Here's one I built for the guy that bought the Taylor. I can't find the pics of it finished.

DSCN0514 (resized).jpg

DSCN0513 (resized).jpg

DSCN0484 (resized).jpg

I think he ended up going like 104 mph as delivered. (he didn't do any tuning after he got it from me I'm sure it would have run better) He ended up selling the engine and boat separately. The guy that got the engine had it dyno'd before he put it in a jet boat and it put out over 680 hp

This is a oldie but a goodie. 24ft with twin 260's launching up a wave. !0,000 lb Formula (with 100 gal gas added). This boat was a heck of alot of fun.

Gotta love a nice Nautique! It was a tough decesion when I started the boat hunt. Between a Mastercraft and Nautique, Both have great qualities and the mastercraft is a deeper hull and engine is easier to access. But I still love the wake on my 210 super air!!!! Not so good for wake surfing though!

14 foot Lund fishing boat.
Just started to save for a new 17 foot Lund impact.

We used to be huge mastercraft people. We put over 1700 hours on each or our last two mastercrafts. But they changed their focus and went from focusing on wakeboarding/wakesurfing to focusing on more family Luxary boat. We bought the G23 last July and put 75 hours on it and couldn’t be happier. I am basically running stock ballast with 500 pounds of lead and the wake is amazing. As good or better than my mastercraft with over 3000 pounds of additional ballast.

You can get a good surf wake out of your boat. Try after market wake shapers and weight that bad boy done.

I took my 2000 Seadoo boat to the marina last week as it was not running properly the end of last year. They figured it was just a simple fix. Turned out it needs a full jet pump rebuild along with a few other things and its going to cost me a grand. I hate boats !!!! Oh wait, no i dont lol

#44 3 years ago

Mine cost me a grand a couple years back. Fuel water separator and hi, low pumps were out of it. Do to the mid grade gas I put in it that was basically 75% water!

Man! How am I just now seeing this thread! I'm a big Seadoo guy but recently started venturing into vintage Kawasaki Stand ups. I've had several Seadoo ski's and bought a 2012 Sea-doo 210 Wake Edition 430hp last spring. My current fleet is The Wake 210, 96 Sea-doo XP, 85 Kawasaki JS-550 with lots of go fast goodies, and i'm currently building a 1994 Kawasaki 750sx. The 750sx is ported, piped, bigger carb, the works! I had a 2008 Sea-doo RXP-X Stage 1, but sold it about a month ago because the boat and the JS-550 got used the most. The RXP-X was a missile after I installed the Stage 1 mods! The JS-550 and the 96 XP were pretty much total restos. I bought them cheap on CL and totally went through them. Taking the Wake 210 out tomorrow for the first time this season! I've already rode the 550 a couple of times this year in a wetsuit.

Bought our first boat last year. A '92 Boston Whaler Outrage 17. Added a dual battery/switcher/ACR, GPS/sonar. Lugged it from Chicago down to Florida for a couple weeks over Thanksgiving. Severe storms almost all the way down to Nashville. Crazy drive. Totally worth it though. Massive amounts of fishing. Even got out on the gulf one day while coast guard recommended we don't with the 5 foot swells. HAD TO DO IT.. just once. Oh, and trout tacos for the win.

Did things backward but finally got my vehicle to tow the boat.

Boat makes pinball hobby look like a poor man’s sport.
