    A long time ago there was a thread started that had everyone posting pics of their canoes and kayaks. I know most of us can't/don't take their power boats with them while towing the Pup (me included). Some puppers with tin boats are able to put them on a rack on the Pup, but that simply won't work for a lot of us.
    It's the middle of winter 2014, theres almost 4 feet of snow on my front lawn, its freezing outside..... I miss my boat (and Pup) so much while they are in storage. I'm dreaming of summer for numerous reasons.
    Lets see whatcha got, give a few specs on it.

    Here's mine....., picked it up in 2006

    2005 Tahoe Q4, 19.5 feet long, 4.3 Merc. 190 hp IO, Alpha 1 Gen 2 drive, 23 inch pitch prop, it'll do about 45 mph trimmed up a bit.

    Also still have the old Cadorette 16 ft. Skimaster with a Johnson Outboard 115 hp 4 cyl. Bought it in '92. That's a pretty fast, nimble little boat.

    And just for all the non-gassers out there, I also have a couple of canoes that I love to fly fish out of.

    Lets see those pictures of the summer water toys.

    That Tahoe is a awesome looking boat. Looks like the kids are having so much fun.
    I do not have a boat to show but I certainly do wish I did have one. Every summer when we camp at Fishcreek pond in the ADK I am so wishing that I had a boat as all sites are on the water and many people have boats or jetskis. Maybe someday.

    I've got a 1996 Bluewater Eagle 18'6" with a 4.3L Mercruiser V6. Owned it since '08. I've had a TON of fun with it, but I've made the decision to put it up for sale. BOOOO! I can't justify the ownership anymore, as I'm not getting enough use out of it, and I'm also looking to purchase a home in the next 1-2 years. I've got to downsize my toys, less overhead, maintenance, etc.

    Sorry I didn't post any pics!

    Thanks, it's a lot of fun, but it has 2 Merc 350's with a 120 gallon tank and I get about 6 hours of boating from that 120 gallons... [:(] It's a lot more fun parked at the dock [LOL] [LOL] [LOL]

    We have an old 86 FiberKing Bomber fish-n-ski with a 115hp Mercury on it. Runs about 45 - 50 on a good day.

    I replaced the transom in it a year after we bought it....not a job I would like to do again.

    She's pretty easy on fuel ... [:D] ...but the dingy with the 3.5 HP really burns it up at about a gallon every two weeks or so .

    Then you sit and have cocktails ,go for a swim , fish then fire the grill up etc. not necessarily in that order . [:D]
    There is a small inboard 20 HP diesel pusher so if we really need to get somewhere we can, it burns just over a quart an hr. [;)]

    If I lived someplace else, I think I'd have to have a pontoon boat.

    Love that 62 Starcraft.
