Re: You Might Have a Project Boat If...

If you have a boat, you probably have a project boat. Are they ever really "done?"

Re: You Might Have a Project Boat If...

dont be depressed--keep dealing with it and get out of town, like i did--it is so much easier to fix while underway and not in a comfy nesting area.

If the mizzen mast is up and lost in the weeds, that is a very long boat project.

Re: You Might Have a Project Boat If...

The lines tying your boat the dock are keeping it afloat.

You've never changed oil on your donk because it hasn't run in three years.

(For trailerable boat)

It's been sitting on the trailer the entire time you've owned it.

Yeah, that's me
Getting closer to getting it in the water.

- You're "ready" to launch but the trailer needs an overhaul...
- You've willed your house to your son on the proviso he finishes the boat
