    I think they are beautiful expensive boats which require a lot of money and upkeep🚤🚤

    Perfect retirement boat for someone that is absolutely committed to owning one. Otherwise I think they're too much work to own one while you have other priorities cluttering your life. I wouldn't even consider it right now, after I think about how much work it already is to own a fiberglass boat. Just my two cents, interested to hear other opinions.

    I am in the same boat. I would love to own one. Someone in my area owns one and I see it on the lake from time to time and it is beautiful. Everyone in the boat thinks I am looking at a HBB but it is a showroom Chris Craft. I mean the boat looks new inside and out. I wish mine looked that nice. Anyways It would be a full time job to keep it looking like new and something for when you retire and can no longer wakeboard/surf. Just my 2c.

    second that, and I see the wooden boat phase lasting maybe a year and another toy that will cost you a few $$k as you sell it to pursue the next endeavour..
