    Some of these stories are funny. I have never lent my boat out, but would to a few select friends that have allowed me to use theirs. I will admit, I will not try and borrow a boat again. We had no boat in 2011 so my neighbor Jeff let me take his to TN and I hit a bridge with the anchor light. Not as bad as it sounds, but could have been worse. Who would have have thought that in 1 hour after dropping off the wives and 4 little kids my buddy and I run to the marina and the water level+lighted load raised the boat enough to hit the bridge, had 4" of clearance before. Man those Nautique lights are expensive. Later the same summer my buddy Ray had is boat at Norris and offered for me to use it and tow it back for him. On the tight roads leading back to our condo, two trailers passing don't work so well. I caught the prop guard on when I dropped a wheel off the blacktop. Trashed prop guard. That has yet to be repaired, since I had already purchased a spare rim and tire for him. Maybe since I have his boat in my warehouse I will fix it and see if he notices.

    Nope. He's ok. He fixes the crap he breaks. Stuff on a boat is going to break every now and then. We don't keep 'em under glass cases. But the guy who was responsible has to be responsible. He can use mine.

    Was camping on the island a few years back, I had to go in to work for the day, so left my boat with my buddy who had the day off. (he's owned several boats and is my right hand man every summer). He drops me at the dock and it's like any other day at work during the summer - wishing I was on the water instead. Hit the dock at 5:00pm and he's sitting there waiting, big grin on his face. Boat is fine, but I'm looking at him going what? WHAT? WTF Man... He just keeps grinning and says nothing.

    Later that night at the campfire I learn that he and his wife went out and "christened" my boat while I was at work... Bastard.

    I suppose I'd still trust him with it - just make sure the vinyl is all wiped down before I see it again.


    But never a renter - and not even family members for that matter!

    Buahahahaaha. Still trying to get the wife to go out and leave all the kids at home. lol. I remember when we ere just married we took my dad's boat up the river and we were not quite to "home run" status, and apparently the cars on the bridge we'd crossed under earlier could still see us...we started hearing people honking. lol

    That was Dusty's Mom's list. She got tired of me wrecking the way she walked.

    Lol!

    I honestly don't think I'd trust anyone with my boat besides my wife.
