    The length of time after walking into Bass Pro required to make a previously rational person think they really need a boat.

    The length of time it took for me to realize that they didnt carry Carhartt or Georgia boot and left.

    Funny, I do not have that reaction. When I get near a boat my wallet starts making whimpering noises like a puppy that knows it is in trouble.

    Of course I have day cruiser tastes and a skiff budget.

    The length of time it takes to cause my wishlist to become waaaaayyyy longer than it was.

    I may be terminally ill. But the last 3 times I went in there were just to look. And I actually didn't spend a dime. A good time was had. Although I do think I need one of those overstuffed camoflaged recliners.

    Been there done that. It resulted in 3 different boats over the years. :supergrin:

    When I go into BP now I just look and leave.

    You are absolutely correct. It's called the Bass Pro 10 minute boat phenonmenon.

    I made it out without spending anything. Gonna get a kayak one of these days, but probably from somewhere else. I was just in the neighborhood so stopped to have a look. It's a little hard to really think about any watercraft the day after 12 inches of snow.
