Honestly, that looks like it would capsize in rough seas. Waaaay too much weight up high.
I’d buy a Rolex Daytona, and an Audi R8. Lmao!!
no doubt. I'd get a stunning home in Naples, FL on the intercostal waterway, a 30 ft fishing boat and a membership at a private golf club there. a round of golf, catch some grouper and relax with a cold beer to watch the sunset in the gulf...
If money were no object I would want a yacht similar to the one’s featured on the TV show Below decks. Of course it would come with a Captain, crew, Chef and be outfitted with all the toys; jet ski, inflatable slide etc.
Going through this thread again reminds me of a few boats I saw on the Rogue River. People were taking old jetskis, pulling the the motor and propulsion out and building plywood boats around them or taking metal boats and dropping them in. Pretty small but reasonably fast and agile. Can go pretty shallow due to the jet vs prop design.
It would appear so but they are made to handle it.
If I was going to waste big money I would get a jet over a boat.
Nothing too big because I would want to be able to land at smaller airports -
Phenom 300 sounds about right - or maybe Cessna Latitude or Sovereign+
Put me down in the - get there fast and then take it slow camp.
Keep in mind boats, even small ones, are a PITA. They require maintenance, licenses, and storage. Easily damaged, and things like batteries (mine takes three), fuel tanks, and bi
lge pumps often need replacement. I wouldn't be without one, but I'm retired and lakes and rivers are within miles. Remember that there are two kind's people. People buying boats and people selling boats.
If I had a pony I'd ride him on my boat.
There's two good things about a boat, the day you buy it and the day you sell it.
So money no object?! A restored WW2 Patrol Torpedo boat, AKA PT boat. Maintenance would have to be farmed out, but that's my idea of a money no object boat. https://www.bing.com/images/search?...26D4E0&selectedIndex=2&FORM=IRPRST&ajaxhist=0
Notice it started with "if money were no object."
I'm 50 with no kids and married 30 years we could easily buy a boat. We live less than 1/2 a mile from a smaller, heavily used clean lake. Mrs Pugman is a huge water person...I'm not. I enjoy fishing and like party barges but would never want a boat. Even a free one.
My rich older brother bought a boat. 1st summer out maybe 12-15 times. This year maybe 4-5. He told me it was a mistake. He has had more problems and bad luck than I can recall.
Thanks, it's a kind of insane design out of New Zealand... it has aluminum air chambers, so it's built like a rigid inflatable, but is all-aluminum.
It'll take on heavy water for a 16' boat, but nothing in the world will change that it's only 16' long and very light (about 1500# ready to fish), a short, tight chop will still beat you up.
I'm unaware of anything that size that will do what it does, and not a whole lot under 22' that is competitive. I loooove opening the flip-up windscreen, standing in the bow and fishing, taking photos or flying drones with 300 degrees open around me.
This guy is mucking with the trailer, but it shows the access out the bow nicely.
here's a little manufacturer's 'adventure' video...
Not even close.
with steel hull, engines, generators, transmissions, water, fuel, ballast, etc below, and mostly aluminum superstructure, electronics, furniture and maybe a bar up high, stability won't ever be an issue.
Hard to say without a hull schematic, the center of gravity probably isn't below the waterline, but it won't be far above it.
Tons of windage, a boat like that will get blown around a little, given the relatively shallow hull and tall 'sail' of the superstructure, but stability won't be a problem.
It *will* get real lively up top if she hits heavy water - that upper deck could easily sway 15' side to side, which may make you hurl. But it's not going to tip under any sane circumstances.
This would work.
Money no object I'll take this one.
My wants....saw some in Porto Fino when I was there....
My budget....with enough Bud, it's all Playboy Bunnies aboard.
I had enough trouble getting my 20ft pontoon boat docked if it was windy so I'm going to say no to another boat.
something like that.. big enough to take some weather, small enough to dock solo.
