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

    I learned to ski behind my dad’s 2nd boat, a late 60’s 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.

    Past
    homemade mid-50's Aristocraft,
    mid-60s Glastron "Corvette" boat,
    90s Regal Jetboat,
    16' Old Town Whitewater canoe

    Current
    80s 39' Marinette Flybridge Sedan Cruiser,
    80s Laser sail boat,
    90s Smokercraft Pontoon,
    80s Astroglas Fish & Ski,

    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
