Yup... 28 foot center console and a 14' inflatable RIB.

I use the RIB (almost) everyday (in season) - its a very easy way to get on the water quickly and enjoy an hour or so. It also provides transportation to the "big" boat on the mooring.

right now, yes. changing from 22 Privateer to 26 Dusky. Will eventually sell Privateer. No room to store 2 boats. BUT, if I did I'd have an offshore and a flats.

edit - didn't know we were counting kayaks...… add 2 kayaks and 1 sup to my list please.

Between my 72 year old father and I we have

43 Tiara - Multi week trips around New England
26 Grady White - Day fishing and island hopping
18 Donzi - go fast
15 Whaler Sport - my kids use and my mom and dad go for a ride to cool off whenever
10 Zodiac Zoom - tender

All serve a specific purpose and get used all summer and I get to fix all of them when they break.

I have the Pursuit 25 walkaround for offshore, the Hewes 20LT for inside fishing and pulling my stone crab traps and a fishing kayak for when I pull my camper to the Keys and can't tow a boat. I could probably do everything with the Pursuit and Kayaks, but I always wanted a Hewes flats boat, so when I saw what I wanted for a good price, I jumped on it. I do about 150 hours a year on each boat, and no clue on hours on the Kayaks.

Our main boat is a 21.5’ Center console (2019 215XSF).

My first boat boat is a fiberglass dinghy that I bought thirty years ago at a yard sale. I fixed it up myself at age 17 and I still use it for fishing small lakes that don’t allow gas motors.

We bought three kayaks last year for the wife and kids, but they aren’t exactly what I would call a boat, more like water toys.

We are buying a piece of bayfront property next month and once we finish building I plan to buy some sort of boat that I can launch from the beach to put out a few crab traps, probably a dory of some sort.

Not currently, but will likely be adding a pontoon/tri-toon to the fleet within the next few years. Nothing can be a toon for piling on folks to go to a raft up. Definitely won't replace my boat though, as they eat gas to run at equal speeds.

It's a boat thing.

Need a mothership and a little what I call 'eff around' boat. The smaller ones are usually much more miles and smiles per gallon.

Yes. Two.

Large cc for longer pelagic runs. Bayboat for everything else.

Different applications.

Also the bayboat makes a great bait catcher

Someone decided about 12 years ago they would provide a better home for the gift my dad gave me in 1970 than I and stole it from my yard. If anyone sees her please let me know
thx in advance
