Hey I forgot one - haha.
At about age 14 or so I got an MRP Outrageous Drag Boat. That would be a 1/10th scale R/C, twin battery, electric engine. Thing was a screamer. Does that count?
In fact I still have it and my 8yr old has big plans to get it going again, although the color has faded pretty badly from a bright white to a dull yellowish haze. Years ago I half sank it after skimming off the top of a rock at full speed (~25mph), creating a 4" gash in the hull, and rolling it. It survived but hasn't been on the water for, (uh, how old am I again) a really long time...
being only 23 i have only had one boat, a 2008 mobius lsv!
I learned to ski behind my dads 2nd boat, a late 60s 15 Crestliner with a 40 horse Johnson.
After a couple years he upgraded to a brand new 16 Chrysler tri-hull with a 105 horse Chrysler outboard.
After college, marriage and moving back to the land of 10,000 lakes we purchased a 3 year old, 1985 18 Larson runabout with a 130hp I/O.
Kept it until 2005 when we purchased a new 19 Glasstron with a 220hp I/O.
The kids really started to getting into wakeboarding, barefooting, slalom, jumping and anything else they can find to do behind a boat, so last spring we found our current boat a 2007 Outback with 75 hours. Only wish we would have made the move to a ski boat sooner, the kids progressed more in one summer than the prior 3 summers combined.

I think that's all I have personally owned - as a kid we had 4 runabouts and 4 cruisers that I can remember - didn't have many early in my adult life 'cause the wife didn't want them - don't have that problem now - ROTHFLOL
And, YES, I'm in my 50s - almost 59 actually - still cutting it up pretty seriously on the slalom and want to use the new Moomba to start wakeboarding and maybe with a hydrofoil
You and I are in the same boat! (no pun intended :) )
