How many boats do you own?

I am curious if there are more people then I think who own more then one boat. For example, a sailboat and a powerboat, or two sailboats such as a large and small one. Maybe even a fishing boat and a motor yacht. So how many do you own? Make this NOT counting kayaks or canoes. I am talking full size boats. If I don't count my kayaks, I have only one but been thinking of getting a second one.

frying pan to boat ratio

A friend of mine told me this story, so I cannot take credit, nor would I ever engage in such a dialog!

He's in a kitchen store with his wife. He has 6 boats. His wife says she would like to buy a frying pan. He says, honey you already have a frying pan, why do you need 2?

Nuff said

I prefer to have one boat in the best possible condition, instead of 2 or 3 boats all in various states of disrepair.

I also have a house, .6 acres, a motorcycle and a 1981 DeLorean to maintain. I have enough to worry about without adding another vessel.
