This is my Mariah bow rider. My wife and i love going to the lake and just cruising or anchoring in a cove and swimming. We only have about 3 good months of this, i need to move south because i could spend every weekend on the water if i could. My grandson likes it too!

Nice boat! Looks like you have fun when you get to use it. A lot like us here in N. Michigan, not enought warm weather to enjoy it with. Thanks for sharing. Roger

Well, this makes more sense. I thought maybe you collected little bottles of different water. I was going to send you a bottle of my tap water.

I like being out on the water, I have just never decided to get a boat.  Maybe someday that might happen.

Your mind sometimes has me worried.  :worshippy1: Are you really okay over there?

Great looking boat. We had one a few years ago, lots of good memories. We were always trying to get the most out of a season. One year we got on the lake a week after there was snow on the ground. And we did ski for a bit to, it was cold.

" Happiest two days of a boat owner.... The day he buys it , and the day he sells it "

 

Do't take that the wrong way  york, been on the water all my life, and the memories make for great stories :-)

p.s.-- fogot to quote the plaque on our family cabin's wall--- " A boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by wood, into which one pours money.  "     then look up to the ceiling , and this one read " No roller skating on the ceiling " :-)

Nice boat. They are fun. Skiing and tubing are what comes to mind. 

 

We love being on the water also. We have kayaks. We use them more than once a week throughout the summer.

I can think of a few memorable stories involving boats and storms. One was a fishing boat in Galveston Bay during a blinding rain storm smack in the middle of the Houston Ship Channel. Another was a Navy destroyer in the South China Sea during a violent typhoon.

Boats are strickly a fair weather hobby. Just ask Noah!

My grandparents used to have a 28ft pontoon. Every weekend during the summer we would cruise around the lake and anchor off in a small cove. We'd all bring food and desert and sit around and share stories and such. Really miss those days.

Thanks for posting.  Surprised there's not more boaters here seems to be another gearhead type occupation to get outside.  Here's a pic of mine.

How about more information. Wood?  length? 

Looks like it would ride rough water without a problem with all that free-board. Nice boat to take the grand kids out in.
