Quoted from Sputnik:

just wake boats

I always try to be respectful to other boaters and fisherman. Esp fisherman since the like to troll the edges and I know my wake pushes them into the shore. Our lake is big enough to go to other places and not disturb them as well as giving space to speed boats and tubers. My main problem is the tubers come and rip up the good water instead of going to the bigger part of the lake and tubing there.

In Wisconsin you need a boater safety certificate if you’re born after ‘89. Kids can’t solo until 16 in a boat, but can solo on a PWC at 12, which makes no sense to me.

I’ve been boating since about 10 and could start Grandpa’s old Evinrude outboard. Here’s my Grandson going out solo for the first time in our Regal 185. We’ve had it for 17 years and it’s never let us down. Own a pontoon and 14’ fishing boat too. Can’t wait for spring and more good times!

I was raised on the west coast of Florida, on an island. All of us (kids) had
boats of all sorts. We practically lived on the water skiing, fishing and sailing.
Both in the inland water ways and way out in the Gulf.

My favorite boat? A one man kayak (the older sit-in kind). No fooling with
gas, engines or the associated noise of stink. Close behind would be a small
sailboat like the Sunfish. Still have a couple kayaks and occasionally my
wife and I will take them out to a lake.

I did not mean anything against wake boats. In a 600 pound boat with 300+ horsepower an unseen wake will put you airborne.

It's like skipping a rock with a sling shot

Sling shot is accurate. 1/4 mile in the high 10 seconds.

Any of you pinheads ever look at the Concept CC? I have been putting some thought in one of them lately.

That looks like the Tahoe Keys. We rented a house there a few years back.

#165 4 months ago

It is. I lucked out and got a great price on a private dock. Hopefully for many summers in years to come.

#166 3 months ago

Have been waiting to get my boat out since the wife was getting a lift for hers installed. Thats done! Now its time to get the fun boat out!
I will also be back on the wakeboard in another week as last year in june I tore my medial and lateral meniscus and partial acl.

The boat is now attached to a truck, so that is a good thing.

I have never trolled with artificial bait, just going to goof off and experiment, if anything happens I will post pics later.

#169 3 months ago

the second best day in my life...last week I sold a 1990 Thompson Sidewinder.
I was not running and been sitting shrink wrapped for too long.

A friend brought the air chair out the other day. Been almost 30 years since I rode one. Good times for sure!

This thread needs to come back.
I am thinking about getting back into boating after a 9 year hiatus

Looking at a 25' Everglades CC

That is a fantastic boat. See plenty of them around. I would jump all up and down on one.

#177 26 days ago

bmore-pinball post made me realized I had not posted a pic of the final dock construction. Permitting took over a year. Due to restrictions, I could not go out far, but was able to go out horizontal. Dredged with a 20,000 pound lift. Still might need to do a few adjustments but we are getting there. Just sewed grass on the hill up to the house, so come next spring we should be in great shape.

Boat market is on fire or Atleast has been. My friend sold a Malibu after a year of use for 20k more than he paid for it.

I have had three friends sell their boats in the last month. Used market it too hot. I thought of selling mine and upgrading but still to mix uncertainty right now. But now is a good time for sellers.

It is crazy here as well. Place I bought my boat from called me up with a heckuva an offer, but the price of new boats of similar size have skyrocketed. Roughly, the cost of a new Nautique or Mastercraft more than I paid. Plus, I got a great deal on mine when we had it built, so the delta is just too great to try and make up.

Maybe I'll swing by your house this summer and introduce myself

#181 25 days ago

Just a reminder that I am pulling my boat out for the season! On a good note though the wife got her boat lift built and is very happy!
