I have a old, beat up 20' pontoon boat, affectionately and appropriately named "Sea Hag".

I've got a power boat, it's a Four Winns 248 Vista. We named it Four Play since there are 4 of us and we like to play. It's set up like a cabin cruiser and we sleep on it quite a bit. The cool thing is it's easily trailerable so I can take it to Buffett concerts if I want - not that I would ever do that of course! :lol:

All of you are making me sooooo jealous! A friend of mine; however, always asks (even the grocery store checkout person) if anyone would help in either painting or sanding or scrubbing - don't mind at times b/c no one ever gets a free ride-even in life.

Owning a boat scares me! :o

He just bought a new sail for his boat for (you don't want to know). :cry:

uh....does a kayak count?
Ever since using them on vacation in the Keys last year I fell in love with them.
I bought one a few months ago and got my moneys worth quick.
Already been in quite a few spots regular boats can't go.
Luckily my best friend just bought one so we can cruise/fish together.
Very peaceful

We call ourselves the "Yak Pack" double meaning ya know.
