Re: So now I keep 6 boats

I own a power boat and a sailboat. Whoops, did I say that here?
At least it's the kinda power boat that has a keel, although I suspect
that won't buy me much on this forum.

My friend tells me the story about going to the store with his wife. He had 6 boats too.
His wife decided she wanted to buy a frying pan. He asked her why she needed a
second frying pan.

Big mistake!

But I own none of those stupid pants that convert into shorts.

Hey...I have two pairs of Rip- stop nylon pants by Colombia given to by my wife as gifts. I NEVER would have bought them myself. I thought they were goofy.

I actually LOVE them as they fill a gap in early spring summer and are somewhat water resistant . They resist wind also. The are comfortable as long pants. You canít tell by looking at them the leg unzips. I have on rare occasion unzipped the legs when I find itís warner or warmed up from early AM temps and I donít feel like going below to change.

Try one....you may like it 🤘👍😄👖🤸*♀️

I have two moorings and one dock space plus all the boats are trailerable and I live 20 minutes from the lake and 30 minutes from Halifax Harbour.
Time is the real issue lol.

Perhaps the trick is to not have a wife

I don't see a problem with it, I'm actually jealous. I would like to see how you rationalize 6 boats in a similar size range so I can try it on my wife.
Here goes...
The 8.2 will be sold next spring honey. It's just getting too big for us.
The MB 18.5 is a wooden boat with a gaff rig...really a special little boat. And it was free, on a trailer, so how could I resist? You know it's the prettiest girl in the yard. The Cugnus 20 is a little planing speedster with a CF retractable bowsprit, a great sail inventory and a fresh bottom. But it's tippy honey and it has nowhere for the girls to pee, that's why I got the Matilda 20. It is very stable, has a galley and ice box, lots of room, and most importantly, a head, you know, a bathroom fit for a queen. But the Madilda is a tad small when we want to entertain a crowd and that's where the PY23 comes into play. See honey? It all makes sense, right?
What do you mean "what about the Code 40" under the deck?"
Well that's for the granddaughter to learn with, silly goose.

Re: So now I keep 6 boats

I’m taking notes. There is a sweet 40’PH cutter built for 2. It fits nicely between the 44 and the 33. Right?

33' Brewer, Murray 33, steel cutter
44' Pape, Steelmaid, cc steel cutter

Re: So now I keep 6 boats

I have to admit to owning 15 boats, but I am more of a kayak-aholic. Only 3 of mine are sailboats and in need of some sort of work. I am down in Socal this weekend and going to pick which boat to take back to Wyoming with me for the 3 month sailing season.

The only one on the hard is the Aloha
