This is f**king insane...
I wouldn't stop the thread, but keep it going as a reminder to others what NOT to do. Also something for those willing to help, many of us would appreciate it, but some don't care.
It's the accident I can't look away from.
I am only human and a man and the only boats I owned before was a 12 ft Gregor. Very much different. Big learning curve with my sea hawk. I've bought rods and there bad choices but we make them should I be shot for making a mistake. I gave this boat all I had my last penny arima bob knows this first hand.
I saw you blow your money on hotel rooms and alcohol... Yes, you put a lot of money into your boat, but you didn't want anything to do with doing it yourself. You asked for others to do the work, and what they wouldn't do, you paid a shop. All that stuff done was fairly simple. All you had to do was listen and learn. There's a lot of knowledge here, and some opinions differ, but lots of good advice. You owe people that helped you with that boat at minimum a huge apology. They were just hoping for a ride to fish, or help a fellow fisherman.
Oh ya I'll be taking people fishing still I just want to put them in a boat that's going to make it back to shore that's all. Big apology for those that have been waiting for me I been doing everything in my power and wallets power to get that boat going. I am sure bob knows the growing pains I speak of. I am still learning the ropes of life.
You had a great boat with tons of potential. Not to be a dick, but I think you should understand more about owning a boat before buying another one. Financial stability helps a lot too. Boats ain't cheap!
My hat is off to you Bob, I keep looking for this thread. Idk why. I just need closure
what a waste of internet.... showing the world what a dumb ass you are....
Some one should put this thread to rest..... and give the BD community a break....
What does "Patients Boat" mean. Just wondering ?
Just bustin it up for a couple of bucks!
I used to be a care taker so I just named my boat the patients boat.
I hope the "Friend" you sold it to doesn't read BDS,this comment might be hard to explain.
The OP is one smart cookie......
Tin boats are the cheapest to run! It seemed like you used and abused your contemporaries and dumped the boat 1st chance! Probably cheaper to repower the tin boat than getting a cuddy inboard or outboard! I slept on my Bayrunner before! 4 man tent sat exactly right in front of the helm with a queen air mattress! I loved that tin boat!
Hell you convinced me to go get another one!!! My back is all fuked up from the pounding less the 4-5 hundred dollar gas bills when I go fishing now! Hell that boat cost less than $100.00 to run including fuel for my truck and beer! And I still had money left over for burgers on the way home! Oh, I forgot spray a little water on that muther and keep it moving! No long assed washing like now!
OP. Please don't respond anymore. You realize you're being used as a tool. Right? But if you enjoy the abuse. Please feel free.
I have never sold a decent boat for more money than I had put into it. I figure the monetary loss is just the price of the entertainment delivered. I just keep it real and don't sweat the rest when it comes to boat ownership. If I get half I am doing good. I find the majority of would be potential boat owners, talks a big story until it is time to throw down some cash........
Your boat is always worth about 3-5k more than your highest offer.
