Cool No boat this summer!!

Ya thats right this summer I'm keeping the boat in the backyard! Every year, I listen to take me fishing, take me fishing, well lets see who's gonna take ME fishing this summer! The rack storage is $3000, oil, fuel, insurance, food, bait, tackle, beers, bla bla bla, I know its a bit of a rant but who hasn't been aggravated with boating at some point? Sometimes I think sitting at the pool is the way to go!!

If there are money issues I get it, but if not you're just hurting yourself. You only go around once.

That sounds ridiculous. Sell the boat and pick up something else. I like having a boat because I don't have to have anyone take my anywhere. Might as well sell the truck while your at it and ask for rides.

Sitting at the pool as an alternative for going out on your boat? Don't think so

That's why I love the 16' aluminum boat. I can only go out in nicer weather. Gas is $20 for a trip and $30 if I feel like going for a long ride and I "beat on her". i can only take 1-2 friends who aren't stupid.

If the weather is crap or I want to fish somewhere else I have a good network of commercial rod and reel fisherman I will pull fish for.

Hah! That'll work out just like when you are pissed at the wife-girlfriend and decide she'll have to initiate sex.
You won't win this fight.

If you have a tow vehicle, just tell your friends that you arn't using it and just launch it at the ramp when YOU want to use it. Or make you're moocher friends help pay the fuel bill.

Collecting stamps is a nice hobby with no moochers.

Don't forget accidentally drop the most expensive rod you have on the boat overboard.

If you care to make the ride to my house I'll take you fishing, I supply the boat, the bait, the gas, the oil, the ins., a throw away pole, and a seat, If you drink (I don't) bring your own.

Going out fishing with a buddy is too much to give up over a person that won't chip in, so I don't ask anyone or expect anyone to. If they do good for them (and me) if they don't I hope I enjoyed the company. Let's fish!
