 Some people see you have a boat and think itís all deserted beaches and loads of fish.  Sometimes it is.

Then comes the not so glamorous stuff like flushing 3 days of salt water and washing the boat, coolers, stowing fishing gear, etc. 

Owning a boat has to be like owning a sawmill, you have to love it.

I have had a few boats back in my day. I now prefer to wait for a friend with a boat to send a invitation. I will gladly pay for fuel, bait and whatever else is needed. Only problem is I still feel guilty the next day when I'm sawing and I know he is having to clean the boat. The feelings don't last to long though.
Two LT70s, Nyle L200 kiln, 4 head planer, 30" double surface planer, Lucas dedicated slabber, Slabmizer, and enough rolling stock and chainsaws to keep it all running.
