Re: Is that a dude captaining that boat!? Helllooo!!

Catamarans... they dont do that "tippy thing", they have 4 "bedrooms" and two "bathrooms" and no ladders!

Actually, she isn't very interested. I could end up on the pinky schooner all by myself.

Re: Is that a dude captaining that boat!? Helllooo!!

Blow Boats are for girly men! What you want is a muscle boat that runs on high octane fuel laced with testosterone. The more it burns the better. Follow in the foot steps of "Diamond Dave"... and, wow, talk about a chic magnet!

Re: Is that a dude captaining that boat!? Helllooo!!

I could see this guy in the back of a well maintained Allied Seawind. Clean, but original gelcoat and deck. He could show off his tatoos and his dog would keep the riff-raff out of the cockpit. Nobody would be calling you a sissy then! (or you wouldn't share a beer with them would you?)

Just hope you're not color blind, because color plays a big part in what a boat looks like an if it's gender specific.

This boat would definitely be a girly girl boat

Re: Is that a dude captaining that boat!? Helllooo!!

Oh my the posts, well dirt off ill share a rum with anyone, no beer thanks, and the budget is actually between 15-20 thousand, but it's still two years away at least. I receive an inheritance in one year but don't think I'll be ready by then. And it leaves plenty in the bank to work with. There's a lot of mention of a "good" head but how would you define this? Obviously not just a bucket but what's good better best?

Re: Is that a dude captaining that boat!? Helllooo!!

Oh and to be honest I'm kind of hoping this can be somewhat my "man-cave" so it doesn't need to be terribly inviting, the gf doesn't need to be able to picture herself living there

Maybe a domestic beer but not one of the craft beers.

Beer!? What for?? Drinking Beer- 40% of the time drinking, 40% urinating, 20% releasing gases. Rum/vodka/tequila? Too hard to remember.
