Toasterdog sweet boat! What is it? Here is my tricked out Spartan that I got custom wrapped as the Black Widow. With 6S it can hit 60 as well, but gets a little squirrely.

Cool RC boats. Ive always wanted to get one for the cottage.

#53 4 years ago

I have 3 RC cars. Boat is next on the list. I think it will be so fun to raise around the lake. Hopefully for my birthday.

And I thought I was the only one dorky enough o be into Pinball and RC boats I'll have to get a pic of some of mine. I've got 4 no of the biggest being a 57" Apache with an inline Zenoah run buy two scale drives. not fast but cuts the water nice. I have a 48" challenger with a cut hull that does 60 with the mod 260 in it. Fun times for sure.

The mighty Sea Rat.....(oops..Sea Ray) 160.

Bought it with a melted #2 cylinder piston and a rotten floor.
Rebuilt the engine, the floor is still rotten.

We have loads of fun with it!

Been boating my whole life. We live near the largest inland lake in Michigan. We have a 2006 Yamaha SX 210 twin engine jetboat and a pair of 2016 Kawasaki jet ski's.

I'll have to find some pics when I get home.

Morning everybody! Happy and safe boating this weekend.

I've somehow survived wakeboarding for the last 27 years. Every time I hit a clean double up jump it's like feeling like a kid again. Had my 1988 Ski Nautique for 25 years, every time i'm on it I feel like I should give it a giant hug and kiss for how good it's been to me.

#60 4 years ago

Growing up, my brother was a tournament skier and we had an 88 Nautique. Just a tremendous boat! Still had one of the best wake tables ever.

I do some boating. It is such a long trip from the house to get on the pontoon... I have an Allison Xr-2001_rr for the adrenaline rush.

Been a Boater since 74, Boat owner since 80.

Current Boat is a 98 Stingray 220LX open-bow with a 5.7 Mercruiser Magnum I/O, 300HP with factory roller-rockers .
Runs like a Timex, takes a licking & keeps on ticking !

Just sold our 77 Kawasaki 440 Stand-up last year, definitely​ miss it ! (my [email protected]$$ doesn't !)

Just put in new batteries & a dual charging system.

Been windy (but warm enough ;-{) to get out, hope to get out this week for a shake-down cruise.

1998 26' Riviera cruiser. Not much motor, but great for Drag'n @$$.

Lake is pretty insane here. Took the kids tubing this morning and I will wait until all the crazies leave and wake board around 7:30 tonight.

Next week back to normal on our lake.

Picked up this beauty in the Spring. Been out a few times.

The first time couldn't go out as the batteries were dead. Bought new batteries and the starter died. The next time the outdrive tilt died. After that so far no more problems.

Probably going to have some pins for sale after taking the plunge on this 2016 G23. It is my dream boat and May family loves boating more than anything. Boat doesn't get here until later this week but I couldn't be happier.

Withmy apologies, every time I quick scan and see this thread it reads,

"Whos into Bloating?"

Time for new glasses!

I'm into boating first and foremost, (as the screename reads). I was a speed freak on the Mullica River in NJ with a 18' Hydrostream V-king powered with a 225 OMC as my rig. Had a blast leaving all waverunners in my wake, which reduced to a trickle once I trimmed out going 75-80. I bought my house on the river just so I could moor it and be around the boating community. Had the rig for 15 years and sure do miss it, but my back told me it was time.

I like fishing with my drunk crazy friends who wear short cutoff jeans

We got to take the sunfish out while on vacation. The winds were a little overbearing in the bay, but we managed.

Haha ya it was funny. He loves fishing more than me and Everytime I bring him he has bad luck but keeps wanting to go. Still has fun though catching a buzz

Finally got rid of my old boat and bought a 2002 Chaparral 215 Cuddy this year. Great boat and the cuddy is used more often than I thought. Cant believe how comfy it is to sleep inside. worth every penny but my slip fees went up

Finally got the new boat out on the water. Bought it because my wife and I are big time wakeboarders but go to love seeing my 4 year old and almost two year old rocking the skier.
