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 .
Jim05 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.'05 Supra Launch 24SSV

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.
2001 MobiusV - current
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....'
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.
