|CaptT||It's a timeshare in Powell.....I think they do have shares for sale....we are fortunate to have great friends that have a share so we usually get to go once a year with them. Good times!|

This is our baby.....
(the one on the left)
One problem though....we bought it off the repo block and there is a hole that has been drilled for what ever reason (bout 2'' diameter) right off the back behind the layout pad...any plates I can buy to cover it??

I am interested in getting a PWC. I've never owned one before. It would be for my wife and I and there would be no towing involved.
Also, it would be strictly fresh water use.
I would like something I could grow into, so I don't need to buy another one in a year.
What brands and models would you suggest? I like dependability, and I don't need to go 80mph

|danielle||Usually fresh water lakes and rivers so depth levels can change a lot. We really have to pay a lot of attention to water levels. We use it mainly for wakeboarding, waterskiing and tubing. We like to cruise around and depending on the lake, see how fast the boat can go. So there is always the posibility of us hitting land or a sand bar even if it is a small chance.|

|baldylox||An aluminum prop does flex more when you hit bottom. It really depends on what area you are boating in if that is a factor. If you are boating in a deep harbor with clay bed, than it's not really a risk.|

Since this is the boat thread, I have a question. We need a new prop and have been thinking about getting stainless steel one. Someone told us if we hit something we could screw up the motor vs just dinging up the prop.
Also, we have a 3 blade but are thinking of going to a 4 blade since we hear you can get tighter turns and plane faster. What are your thoughts on this or should we stick with a 3 blade?
We have a Searay with the 5.0 V8 and it is 20 feet long.

|baldylox||Yea. On the bay there are ISLANDS of sea grass after may. Gotta run the prop in reverse every couple minutes.|

Money pit indeed. Me and dad think we have an expensive little thing on our hands when out 115hp outboard needs an overhaul. Then our neighbour weighs in on his boating related expenses. He owns about $4 million worth of boat (3 Cruisers and 2 speedboats) and when we spend $2k on ours he chimes in with "my 60 footer costs $15 000 in diesel to fill up"
Wouldn't have it any other way tho, nothing beats taking a group of mates out for a hot summer day on the water. Long as you accept/embrace the giant money hole thing it's all good.

|baldylox||Boat = hole in the water into which you throw money.|
