    Default How Many Boats Have You Owned

    Viewing MoomaDaze's profile pics of all the boats he's owned got me curious on how many boats everyone has owned in their lifetime.

    Ok , I 'll bite.

    1969 15' corsair , 70 hp well used outboard. Re painted it, did the back to back seats my self, new speedo and tach. ended up selling it to start a family.

    1989 21' Rinker cuddy cabin. Had it 7 years and enjoyed it well . Kids were little and it worked well for them and us of course .

    1997 21' Rinker open bow. bought it new , had it 10 years , installed a tower and full vinyl enclosure for camping. It just needed a perfect pass to complete the boat. Sold it in a week in the winter !!

    2005 Moomba Mobius lsv. Bought it lightly used, have used it alot of course. Love to surf and wakeboard with it. Used it 2 years before installing a perfect pass , best thing I have ever installed in a boat in all these years. I don't think I will ever go back to a i/o unless it is a huge cruiser to sleep in .

    05 Mobius lsv , ballast system , stereo, etc..

    1986 Glassport 165RX - it was 16.5 feet long, inboard/outboard, with an OMC Cobra outdrive that gave me problems CONSTANTLY, floors that were starting to give out, a big dent in the side where I hit a buoy at night, and half the gauges didn't work. With that said, I bought it in college as a repo for $1,000, built the tower for it myself, and never in my life have I had more fun on a boat. Some of my best memories ever were made on that boat, including when it'd break down at night. I had it for 4 years and sold it for $200 more than I paid for it and still wish I never got rid of it.

    In college I was on the UT ski/wakeboard team, which was sponsored by Mastercraft, and I was an officer which meant I had keys to the boat and could take it whenever I wanted it. We got a new one every year and I was on the team for 3 years, so I kind of had:

    '05 MC X-7
    '06 MC X-7
    '07 MC X-15

    In '08 I bought my '05 Supra Launch 24SSV and she's a great boat and we've already made some great memories.

    just one.
    I'm sure there will be others though, unless gas prices say it's not fun anymore

    Really old 12' aluminum skiff with a newer 15HP Johnson OB. Hey, we kneeboarded and could even ski behind it when we were younger but it took a half mile to finally get up and you couldn't cut at all without bringing the boat to a screaching halt!

    1969 Tom Sawyer tri-hull with a mercruiser 120hp i/o. Ugly duckling for sure and not much of a 'chick magnet' but we ran the crap out of it. Years later I actually retrofitted in a late 90's remanufactured 140hp 4-cyl after cracking the block on the poor old thing.

    Next??
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    As a kid my dad had an old green tri-hul looking alot like the one above. But it had a late 60's Merc 115 HP OB. If you have ever had one you will know what I mean whe I say - 'Its a Merc....'

    Otherwise
    1: 1989 Forrester Phantom 166 with 110HP Johnson. sold in 2000 to by next boat for 50% of purchase price. Lots of stories about this boat if anyone is interested.

    2: 1999 Moomba Mobius - current boat.

    Additionally:
    3. I married into a Sears Jetwind sailboat - now junked
    4. windsurfer
    5. canoe
    6. Sunflower sailboat
    7. paddleboat
    If you believe something to be true, it will be - in it's consequences.
