It's supposed to create the illusion of a floating roof line similar to the canopy of a fighter jet.  That is....  according to Nissan head designer Vishnu Jayamoha.

Does anyone here own a (motor) boat? Or is there a separate thread for boats?

I have the burning desire to throw some money away

Looking at around 30 footer, just for cruising and fishing no water skiing etc doesn't need to be fast

That would be a cool thread. My business co-founder has something along those lines, but it's fairly fast and was fun when I've been on it. I know nothing about boating/sailing whatever though.

He did relay the typical sentiment about owning a boat and associated costs, as relatively small as his is. His DD is an A6, so I suppose he's used to irrational choices in transportation. shog[1].gif

The two best days in a boat owners life. The day they buy the boat, and they day they sell the boat.

Yes a boat is like a hole in the water you pour money into etc

Pretty fun though if you live in an area with nice weather and waterways

We are living overlooking the harbour at the moment and I see all the other boats come and go . There's a few isolated beaches and coves that can't be got to except by boat which would be fun to do on a weekend

Some seem to never get taken out though: I read an article saying they get used 150 hours in their first year of ownership, then 50 hours per year thereafter

Fuel is what kills you apparently: especially if you are heavy on the throttle . Several hundred dollars for a few hours of cruising

I say startup a boat thread if there isnt one. Id love to gather more information as I just have sailboats now, but once the kids get older I think Ill be in the market for either what you are looking for or a couple of pwc's.

When you say "cruising," how much are you talking about below decks (# berths, head, galley, etc.)?

I don't have a boat, but I do practice motorboating regularly

Sleeps 2-4? basic Shower and bathroom. Just enough for one or two couples to overnight on?

Any advice?

Probably a stupid question but do motor boats take normal gasoline or is there some special fuel blend you have to buy?

Most here take normal petrol or diesel if its more of a working boat meant for a job.

Hi octane unleaded

But you can get diesel: makes more sense for bigger boats.
Cheaper to run, more resilient engine, but slower and takes up more space

Note that I'm not an expert though
