I would buy the biggest boat that would allow the most bikini clad women crewmembers on it and go on a LONG quest for the ultimate (fill in the blank)

Guess I'm keeping the boat I have since I didn't win . I wouldn't have bought a new boat anyway- I would have bought a whole island  to keep her at though!! LOL!

Probably too much noise. And then there is the whole gun thing!

But thanks for the offer.

I would buy the worlds longest canoe, and the worlds shortest paddle. I like a challenge.

Re: If I Won the Lottery - What Boat to Buy ?

You are all sorry I didn't win the 500 mil.

I would go back through these threads (there have been many) and buy you what you said you would want.

Yep.

Then I would just bum rides all over.

Then I would know what boat and anchor to buy.

Too bad I didn't win huh?

Re: If I Won the Lottery - What Boat to Buy ?

Dragonfly 1800,yeah I know it does not exist but after I pay a visit to Qourning boats it will.one with 2 masts of same dimensions(like Beowulf)
and a lay out a la Beneteau 55 sense and without annoying lines running through the cockpit(why doesn't the dragonfly 35 have a targa bar a la Sense 43??)

so and now back to reality,just today I discovered the Cal 40 through this forum which will provide me with a lot of reading in the easter days!

Cheers and have a nice easter weekend!
