    I am just curious if there are any large boat owners on SF. It would stand to reason that a few people here must own a yacht or at the very least a small craft. I am curious if people have any pics or experiences they'd want to share.

    My father has a boat, but now that I'm living far enough from home that I don't see it but once a year (if that) [​IMG] . There are some great sailing and rowing clubs in DC that provides small hulls and skulls to their members at very low rates.

    48' S&S. I'd call her "mid-size". The tender on the cabin top is a 9' Dyer. Here you go: [​IMG]

    A 26 foot 1970's fishing boat. I don't even remember who the maker is. It hasn't seen the water in 7 or so years, but only has some some minimal work yet to be done before it's seaworthy again (laziness). Almost sank it when a hose burst, but thanks to the Coast Guard the boat, my crew, and myself were rescued. This year I'll get it back in the ocean and put some fish on the deck once again.

    there was an interesting article in wednesday's NYT about boat owners in south carolina who were sanding the names and removing serial numbers from their boats and just dumping them.

    I want an old Cris-Craft. There are a few on our lake, and I become lustful every time I see one.

    To be honest, I like taking the canoe/kayak out more than the motorboat.

    Beautiful craft, Yachtie. What do you call her and where is she based out of?

    Im seeing some tremendous deals posted at the marina. This is a great time for anyone looking to get into boating to get a start. Ive been seriously considering picking up some kind of sailboat to learn on. As it stands, Im a powerboat guy.

    Warning, though- boating will consume your life. During the time you're not spending at sea, you'll be obsessively thinking about little but your next voyage. Your working life will be adversely affected. Ive learned a lot the hard way over the course of my nautical life, and Im happy to share.

    Thanks Gents! She's our "pride and joy". Penninglock: We're on the Great Lakes. I'll keep the name private as there's a lot of information that's available concerning the owners of documented vessels.
    Ain't that the truth. [​IMG]. Winter- plan maintenance, think about summer Spring- do maintenance, think about summer Summer- sail and think about maintenance Fall- do maintenance and think about next summer Nice Hunter, Mark. [​IMG]
