Done with the boat thing. Two Bennington's and $60K later. Never again!
I’d buy a 60 foot cat. Move it around the South Pacific, and charter it out to my friends for nothing.
This is the one!
This is the one for me :
Is not a boat a hole in the water into which you throw money?
If money were no object, of course. I would have a fleet. Silly question.
Boarding a boat is like being sentenced to jail but with a higher danger of drowning.
Catalina ain't PowerBall kinda money...nice boat but not what is considered a luxury yacht.
Boston Whaler 325 Conquest Pilothouse
A PBR would be nice.
A Hardy 42, twin diesels.
Nice boat for Nova Scotia to Galveston trips.
At my age a sailboat involves too much work.
If money were no object, absolutely. And a buff captain and crew (all shirtless of course) LOL.
I used to have a 36' Contender, but I didn't use it often enough to justify the storage and maintenance expense so I sold it. It was like this one:
I suspect if boats were free I'd not have one. I live few miles from Mobile Bay delta and less than an hour drive to the Gulf. Live in a great place for boating and fishing and just don't appeal to me.
You don't have to fish just because you have a boat. There are plenty of other ways to enjoy boating besides fishing.
In my experience, first you threw money, later the boat SUCKED ALL YOUR MONEY...
Yes, but nothing much over 40'. A cabin cruiser. Something to go from port-to-port in comfort, with the comforts of home. One that sits in a slip, not a driveway.
Boats are a hobby, and expensive ones.
30” with an outboard (or outboards). Large enough to be comfortable but small enough to use as a true fishing boat.
This is what I would go with, but I do like to carry in a Galco Miami Classic Lite!
Yes, I would try it. I know nothing about boats but I have been watching people that do long distance adventure trips using trawler type boats. Something on the lines of a Nordhavn, Flemming, Outer Reef, Kadey-Krogan ....
1:Ability to travel from Caribbean to Alaska in comfort, not extravagance.
2: Double everything (Redundancy)
3: Ability to fish off back
4: Set up to swim off back
5: Set up to SCUBA dive off back, tank holders, compressor to fill tanks etc.
6: Decent tenders (2) at least one that can a pull knee boarder or tubers, to keep young ones happy.
