"What boat should I buy? I want something that can fit 12-20 people that I can drive down to the Carolina's on a Friday night for the weekend and miss all the traffic." We live in Connecticut..... He was serious in asking the question.
I hope you recommended a CESNA to him haha.
I did... because we are know that flying a plane is nothing more than hitting the gas and steering Besides - if he just runs down to the Cesna dealer and lays out some cash - then he could hop over to Europe for the weekend LOL
