After a good number of local races I got invited to go to The NA championship, or worlds or something with the guy who wound up winning. I decided to break my own legs as a less painful option.

Re: What's the Worst Boat YOU Ever Had?

All done now, just waiting for spring weather to paint the decks. Repaired all rot in boat for about 12k all up, in less than 6 months part time.

Re: What's the Worst Boat YOU Ever Had?

Oh geez ... what if I've only had one boat ... would it be the best boat I ever had, or would it be the worse boat I've ever had?

Even if it was good, it would be the worst and even if it was bad, it would be the best ...

oh woe

Or to put it another way:

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way"

Re: What's the Worst Boat YOU Ever Had?

Bad boat, You're kidding right? I have never had a bad boat, but the boat/s have had a bad owner. I am finishing a three year re-fit of Vigah. Great boat, but I can't say much for the owner. If taken care of I venture to say most any boat will last a long long time. I am sure that if life didn't get in the way, etc. that there would not have been the need for a re-fit. It would be convenient to blame the boat, but really!!!!

Re: What's the Worst Boat YOU Ever Had?

I guess I've been lucky, or not owned enough boats yet, but I haven't owned a bad one yet.
The few I have owned have several times had me wondering "what were they thinking" or "wonder what kind of drugs were they on" about the designers / builders.

I have still yet to fathom the desire to tie wrap everything together every 6", then enclose the wires / hoses so that the tie wraps cannot be reached to replace the hose.

Carter 30... the only boat I've regretted buying.
And the only one I've actually gone out and celebrated when she sold.

Re: What's the Worst Boat YOU Ever Had?

A small Zodiac inflatable. The wooden transom rotted out in less than three years. Zodiac refused to repair it under warranty. They said fresh water did it. Apparently, the transoms in their boats aren't waterproof.

So - $1500 down the drain. Worst boat I have ever had.

BTW: Anyone near Charleston, SC want to buy it cheap? All it needs is a new transom.

Re: What's the Worst Boat YOU Ever Had?

My worst boat was great! It was a 1969 Whitney 30 Sparkman & Stephens design that we bought in 1971 and first moved aboard. We sold in in 1973 when we decided to buy a boat that I could stand up straight inside.
