Enjoy what is obviously a beautiful boat

It shouldn't be too bad. The insurance is $450 per year. About the price of average boat rental up here for 2 hours. I'll keep in a climate controlled garage in the house we have in Incline Village for free when I'm not using it (otherwise about $600.00 per month up here), and will continue with the annual winterizing, summerizing, and servicing of the boat (which will cost me about $300.00 a year).

So I figure about $1500.00 a year in average annual expenses except for gas and if something major breaks, which it probably will, but, I should keep it minimized by keeping it properly serviced and being careful with those twin stainless steel props.

I do know, however, what the acronym BOAT means... Break Out Another Thousand.

You are either totally nuts or a multi-billionaire. (If the latter would like to adopt a 49 year old kid? I am reasonably neat and almost house broken.)

Attachment 108202

It's a 23' 2003 Crownline bowrider with 25 hours on the hobbs meter and looks nearly show room new inside and out. My purchase is contingent on a trial run and a mechanical inspection by my choice of boat mechanic. It's been a Lake Tahoe boat only when it was in the water. It's been in Carson City Nevada for quite awhile but will be back in and will stay in Lake Tahoe if it passes muster by me and my mechanic.

So.... Here I go once again!!!
Nice boat,Congrats!! I've always been a fan of the Crownline boats

Heard a great saying the other day... "The two happiest days in a boat owners life are the day he buys a new boat and the day he sells it!"
