Bank vs own?

If my money were in the bank, I would have to pay somebody to sit on their dock to watch the sunset. Most resorts that have sunsets like you post, Dan, are very expensive, plus expense to get there....

No need for PM. It was $125/foot. They did a great job and it's obvious they are proud of their work, so no need to be secretive. As noted above, this included pick up and delivery (300 yards?)...

A few days after this post I called Diamond Shine. They came out and looked at both my boats, and quoted. The "Viking" is a 1994 Sea Ray Overnighter. In reasonable condition for its age and I'm...

check my math

1.1 acres? 405 frontage means about 100 feet deep. The first 50 feet of frontage is un-buildable. Then maybe 10-12 feet on the front for a deck or porch. There must be a setback from the back lot...

Having started boating way before there were bow-riders, it would never occur to me to have somebody in the bow. There's much better stability for crew in the back, at least in my boats where you can...

Expensive?

The Miami show starts in a couple of days. Comparatively, the Boston show is pretty small. If you check out some of the in water boats at the Miami show, the boats in Boston suddenly seem pretty...

Risk?

The original post was surprise at confiscating a pen knife. I understand that simple "weapons" can be used to create havoc with a bus or airplane. Not so much a boat show. Others have their own...

Low inventory

The inventory is low, in part because properties "sell" within the family. As long as the next generation can afford the taxes, nobody wants to sell. They may sell their mainland home in Kansas and...

Lasso?

Use your existing line like a lasso. Put the bitter end through the braided loop and make loop about 3' in diameter. Throw/drop it over the post and pull tight, fasten to a cleat. Save $8.17 or...

Welcome to the Forum. The latest posts on this thread can be pretty informative. I don't see much enthusiasm for running machines on the ice this year, especially the broads. I'd tie a 250' line...

Welcome

Welcome to the Forum Buoyhead. That's a unique boat. I feel like I saw such a boat some decades ago at the Glendale docks. I don't recall the Penn Yan dealer, but maybe somebody here knows the...

I can't disagree, but I think this was a private company decision/process,. I just thought it was overkill for the situation.

New bimini mounting?

I stopped by the Cobalt display today in Boston. I can see where the side-mounted bimini mount would stick out beyond the rubrail. The 2020 model I saw had moved the mounting bracket to the top of...

Boat show security

I don't remember security, metal detectors etc at previous shows, but they had one this morning and confiscated my pen knife. I'm not sure which boat they thought I could hijack. As a follow up, I...

It looks like ekal Activity Center (Miss Meredith) has multiple boats and will charter. On a charter you might be able to bring your dog in a crate. If it's a bigger dog, that may be more of a...

snowmobile shut down?
