The guy is a retired auto shop teacher, and took great care of these machines. But I am not sure if I want to jump into boat ownership with a 35 year old boat. I am just finally getting close to success with the Sunchaser, the Vespa completion is within reach, and we are working on the 47 year old T Bird. There is a limit to even my poor decisions.

The boat looked cool, and sounded great. I was less excited by the big oil stain in the floor of the garage, as well as the metal catch tray sitting on the grass next to the driveway, like it had recently been moved from under something and hosed off. Did I mention that the van is cool as hell?

In the end, we are going to pass. The boat was too small with not enough seating. It is really a dedicated ski boat with only 2 real seats, and we would want more of a cruise around-space to sit-room for the cooler-room for the dog kind of boat.

On the plus side, my wife has told me to start shopping for a boat. She wants a boat more than a new refrigerator.

Did I mention that this is a good woman?
