As most boater's  know the two best day's of a boater's life is the day he buy's his boat and the day he sell's it,  well I'm the latter of the two . But it is time , I have owned this classic 24' Topaz for fifteen years she has treated me well and I don't regret a moment of owning it. It is going to a new home in the Raritan bay north of where I live in NJ . I know she will continue to please her new owner as she did me.IMG_1227.JPG IMG_1226.JPG

Boats are soooo much more enjoyable when they are owned by someone else.

Nice boat!  But I've owned 3 over the years, and never will own another.  Too much money & time involved for upkeep for what little I got to use mine.

A boat is a hole in the water to throw money into.

Boy that would be a nice big water boat.

I must be in the minority here. I purchased a new 16' Crestliner in 1999 and still have it. Other than normal consumables it has been trouble and cost free since new. The 40hp. Merc. has only had the plugs changed once in all those years. Keep it covered and under cover. Run the fuel out of it in the fall and NEVER run ethanol in it. Starts right up every spring.  I don't know what they used for paint but it still looks excellent. Had some repair work done on the original cover this fall but that's it. Been a total pleasure to own and use.

Nice big boat.  I agree with your original statement.  I'm still waiting to close the page on ours.

Nice if you have the water for it.  I have had several Bass boats, each one a little larger than the prior.  Last one was 20' Hydro-Sport tournament package with 200 hp Merc outboard.  Not one bit of trouble with it for the 5 years I owned it.  Have had it on some real rough water too.
