Boatt= bust out another ten thousand :d
idk..it is on my list to own..and i found a nice chris craft for 17..thing looks brand new..and if i got the money for my boat it would pay off the one loan thats holding me back..i have 2 loans..small but together its costing me about 400$ a month..so im going to sell the bike that has the loan on her..and yall are right( i also did have ADHD as a kid )..but i also want input on these things before i drop money into them
and ill tell yall i tell my friends..if it doesnt sell by oct ill store it and redo the bent stuff on the rearend and redo the carpet and vinyl myself and make her look brand new..im not worried about it..and since my friend does lighted signs for work im going to get him to help me wire up the boat with led blue lights
ill see what happens
Save your coin,the old woodies are great hobbies but not too practical. Kinda like a 57 Chevy rebuild, not many ever hit the end of the driveway from the garage..
The other thing is that they are not much fun. They are more like art: great to look at but don't touch. Yes, you can take a ride but watersports are out of the question-- too messy. So, you can go for a cruise on a perfect day and then spend 4-5 hrs. cleaning her up. Save it for retirement.
Or you could go "hybrid" - modern composite hull & mechanicals, with a wooden deck, accents, etc. I saw a factory job (can't remember mfg) on Canyon Lake years ago & there was a guy over on the Supra forums that Woodied out his Comp. Would give you a reliable platform & still have the opportunity to learn about constant wood maintenance.
