Wife wants a boat, says get rid of tractors, get boat! People I talk to say Boat is another Money Pit and high maintainance. I see lots of inboards for sale, but told to stay away from them if they are broken. Most have Chevy V-8's and Fours converted to marine use, yet lots of odd parts in them and pumps and pumps and pumps. Have to watch water getting into engines when backing too fast, gets in exhaust and locks up or other bad things. Huhhh? Heard that many times. I was told a boat is much like GT, you want bad, you buy one to fix, cost too much to do right, just sits in yard and rots! Ha! I think might have one next summer anyway. Would like a Fiberglass not too big with open area in bow for passengers, and enough engine to ski or tube with. We'll see. Guess at $250 one could go a ways before being too much into it if it doesn't work out. Sure needs some seats, yuk! Hows the cabin look? What engine and drive is in that?
