A cheap pontoon with a honda motor. Something I can beat on, let others drive, have a bunch of passengers, easy to clean, cheap on gas, cheap to insure, easy to work on. I know its not a boat that gonna get the ladies wet lol but it gets me on the water and its cheap to own where I wont regret it and be the typical boat story. Plus I'm never having kids so I'll always be using it. The last 10yrs I usually am on a boat 3 times a week thanks to my buddies, so I know I'll use it. Plus my GF can drive it and we can drive it on to a shore without worrying im gonna damage it.
You got somewhere to keep it?

just hang out on your friend's boats. that way you can still drink all the beer you want.


Treyson, will the car already be tuned or will you have to cough up more cash for a custom dyno tune?
It is on a start up tune. I have already paid for them. Chris Holmes is tuning my car over email, he's a ****ing animal with turbo Coyotes. He daily drives an 8 sec CPR turbo car.

Without a tune. They told him to come pick it up, they couldn't finish for 3 more months.

That's the way to do it.

Nope, I wanna keep it at a marina ideally.. Seems like the cheapest way to own a boat even for a 15k boat will be bare minimum 600 a month. Thats a lotta scratch in the winter time to keep it at a marina. I know there are plenty of other ways but this way is ideal. Just drive there an hop on ur boat... Grrrr.

I know right, and that doesnt include gas or anything breaking. Its an expensive activity for sure. It like having a horse...

Its a lot cheaper if you have a truck already and dont mind trailering it to the lake. I dont have a truck nor can my driveway fit another car really. But I can buy a cheap one and keep it all mounted up to the trailer and then rock and roll from there but I'm just deciding if that is something I wanna do...

Want to open a marina at Hartwell or Lanier? lol

If my grandpa wasnt such a curious ass I would ask him about you keep the boat there for a cheaper amount. But I already know the answer haha! He does store his boat during winter in some pole barn about 5 miles from the lake house, granted you would need a truck to tow it.

Tomorrow big dog. Took a half day at work to get it. My group leader is a car guy and has a built Vette, on my PTO slip I mentioned "picking up the Vette killer" and he liked it lol. He knows the whole story with it and when I told him today that I'm picking it up tomorrow he was about as happy as myself :lol

Transmission came in Thursday. Driveshaft came back today. Fluids came in today. Now just waiting on freaking Amazon to get the friction modifier and slave cylinder in. 3 of my last 4 prime shipments have been late. Not too happy with amazon right now...

Ben's the best for customer service/turn around time. 9 days (8 business days) total from my doorstep back to my doorstep.
The Driveshaft Shop is awesome as well. 12 days (9 business days) turn around doorstep to doorstep total. I've had that shaft at least 4 years. They have a 1 year warranty but they still warrantied out the CV joint. I think that's killer customer service right there.

lol i hear ya man. Yeah I have no access to a truck that I can reliably count on.
Uhaul rents pickups. Keep it at the marina during the summer. rent a uhaul pickup and put it in a storage unit during the winter. Boom. Money saved.
