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

when your "to do" list grows faster than your "done" list

when you realize you need new bottom paint, and your boat is still on the same stands as it was the last time you painted it...

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

... you finally realize that the timetable for your boat to splash is based not on your efforts, but rising sea levels from global climate change.....

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

Your neighbors have to "grandfather in" your boat project at the home owners association because your boat was there first.

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

This is a true story about my first F/G boat. I knew it was a project when I went to see it in the Barstow desert and inside was a dead coyote floating in 3 ft. of rain water...no joke!
