Default One sentence to describe every boat you've owned.

This might be entertaining.

No run on/crazy long paragraph stuff. Multiple adjectives not in sentence form works too.

Mine in order.

1980's Procraft 18' fish/ski - POS bow to stern.

1980's Winner 18' Fish/ski - 60mph well made beast that would couldn't handle 2' chop

1969 Aquasport 19-1 - Small wake = Soaking wet. Floats in 9". Hated this boat(wrong boat for Lauderdale).

1994 Hydrasports 2000DC - Great layout, fast(225hp), very tippy

1985 Proline 17 - Huge 17, great all around boat, Fast(had a 150)

1994 Henry-O 16' - Awesome in every way

1979 Mainship 34' - Slow apartment that gets amazing MPG.

Nordhavn 62: The fastest luxury condominium I have ever been on, but also the slowest motoryacht I have ever been on.

Yellowfin 34: A fantastic hull ruined by POS problematic motors we had on her.

Bahama 37: LEGENDARY!

Bahama 41: best boat we've yet to take delivery of.

Donzi f23: The most robust, tough boat that has taken every beating my friends and I have dished out to it with ease. And its a 30 year old boat.

Hewes Lappy 18 Redfisher: A simple beautiiful classic rig that does everything I ask of it.

Egret 167: Hands down best flats boat in its class, IMO.

Custom Rendova 18: Hands down the best most versatile boat in our fleet and also happens to be my favorite. Sadly, our boat is probably the one that put them out of business.

Gheenoe: Swamp and Stick Marsh machine.

15' Whaler Dauntless- Most fun had while getting fillings knocked out
Hewes Lappy 18 Bayfisher: Great boat. Not a flats boat guy.
18' Donzi Classic- Conversation Starter but meant to be garage queen
20' Grady WA- Cheap to run and multi use
30' Grady Marlin- Last boat I will ever own with two strokes . Bad engines killed boat
22' Grady Freedom-Very good day boat. Zero cool factor
23' Grady Gulfstream- Great 23' boat. Biggest in her class
30' Marlin (Current)- Favorite boat to date. Diesel Gen and 4 strokes. Wont last long as upgrade in the horizon.

Boats can be compared to women. Some are cheap, some are expensive, some are quite and some are loud, some are good at lots of things and some are only good for nothing, some are wet riding and some are dry , and some are high maintenance and some go forever with just a little care.
