Kurt, what kind of boat?

Glad to see I'm not the only boating Dan Wesson member.

I had a boat but too much $$$ to keep it going. What's the old joke BOAT stands for "Break out another thousand"

I was born in Miami. Parents divorced but I spent a month each summer with my Dad in Miami. I guess it was early 1960s and he bought a Formula. 19 ft and inches, it was the first Deep Vee hull by Don Aronow, spelling? Then when I was 13, 1963, he had the first Donzi. 14ft 2inches  with a Boss 302 inboard /outboard. When I was 14 he asked me what  I wanted for my birthday. I said a Donzi. I lived on the inland waterway in the Jersey Shore. I didn't get anything for my birthday that year. The next year, 15 years old, he asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I said a Donzi. I didn't get anything that year. The next year, 16 years old, he asked what I wanted for my birthday. I said"anything Dad". I got a check for $200. It was a lot of money back then. That was the end of my deep vee desires.

Nice Kurt!  I'm running a 32 Sea Ray with twin roller cam small blocks.  She's quick, BUT nothing compared to your ride!

Ole Dog, you have no idea how much I have come to respect and admire your wisdom and experience as I’ve gotten to know you over the years thru this forum and our personal  texts!  I always enjoy hearing about your history and experience.  I wish you could have had that Donzi!!  A Donzi is on my bucket list for sure!  Along with others like Outer Limits, Cigarette, Formula, Apache, Sunsation, etc.!!!

I bet your fuel costs are way better than mine though!!  Small blocks are way more fuel efficient, but man…the sound of twin big block chevys is so incredible!!!  Our next boat is likely a 42-foot Fountain with twin 525 EFIs!!!  Probably 100 mph or at least knocking on the door!   I need my head checked to even think about that plan!!

Kurt, if I get another boat, it'll be around 40 feet with diesels. 

I'd love a flybridge sport fisherman, just gotta convince the wife, lol.

Scorpio, that sounds like a great idea!

Capt Jack, I’m now jealous…shooting offshore has to be a blast!  The people who live all around the shoreline of our local lake might get upset if I started shooting from our boat. screwy LOL
