    I love this thread. No boat now but working at the Malibu/Moomba/Supra dealer back in High School did have its advantages :D

    So after doing the "1090 Trip", a 1090 mile trip up the east coast from Miami to DC in a 21 foot searay, my parents have decided to do the "great loop". It's a 5000 to 7500 mile loop around about half of the country. distance depends on the route (see map below). 1090 miles was abotu the limit of the small searay, so they are looking to upgrade. they went for a test drive today on their current top choice.

    Great loop map
    Green is for Spring
    Red is for Summer
    Blue is for Fall/Winter

    Here's the boat

    Sick! I want to retire on a boat and do the same routes. Have a family friend that takes his 420 SeaRay sedan every year around the "block" haha he keeps it on the St Lawrence. My parents had a 25' Century that I grew up spending summers on the St Lawrence. Hope to have my own someday soon.

    Right now I rock a 24' Boston Whaler Justice with twin 200 Mercs at work

    The little Whipray lies in wait..., as if it could will a tarpon to roll. It's a 14 year old Hell's Bay Whipray 16, recently restored with a Honda 50 for power. A classic, simple technical poling skiff for saltwater fly fishing.

    Look at build!
    Picked up this 80' 14ft Duracraft from a buddy for $80 title and all, just a basic little boat with no accessories or anything.

    temporary_zpsea398c90_7b6853222229b62692a8241b333024571f99b77e.jpg

    started decking the front as well as all the floors and I turned the livewell into dry storage ( Always keep my fish in a cooler anyway)

    temporary_zps71147d62_06540d8342f004271f1ec15a390f7c39a0709bef.jpg

    temporary_zpseca2c86c_4d7e417df7f70f96b3cb9019737742a0ca8feae0.jpg

    cut a hole in the front deck and hinged it and will be making a parachord handle to lift it up, it will also be storage but I made it to fit around my cooler as well..

    temporary_zps5256f353_bc7c2814dc30f92086674d8eb46195733a76d3b8.jpg

    Picked up a trailer finally

    temporary_zps9a4c3b60_aba60542441a630632aeabdd3f201d6708811266.jpg

    Cleaned it all up and got a coat of paint on it after cutting some stuff off and re welding some brackets and cracked spots, New brake and turn lights etc.

    temporary_zps53dcbbab_3523c73419d097c41449bfb5a5aaca0b71e46773.jpg

    also made an aluminum switch panel that is bolted to the dry box where the battery and blue seas fuse box will go just waiting on the electrical stuff to get here to button it all up with lights and so forth.

    Its a start and so far im only in it $300 so not too bad. & that includes two trolling motors

    Here is my jet ski. I originally had a boat but since the lakes are drying up around Amarillo Texas I wanted something I could pull further with the Tacoma.

    That's not a jet ski, it's a wave runner; says so right on the side.

    Got this 1989 Tracker 16' jonboat for $300 with trailer, Johnson 20 outboard, 3 transom mount Minn Kota Endura 50 trolling motors and 1 bow mount trolling motor, and Hummingbird fish-finder. The boat had been sitting under a carport for 2 years and needed somemajor TLC.
    I sold the Johnson for $250 since I'm gonna use it on Electric motor lakes only anyway. Remodeled the decking, new batteries, new seats, new marine carpet, camo'd the sides and Herculiner'd the bottom. Just gotta re-install the bow mount trolling motor and she'll be ready for her maiden voyage this Labor Day weekend.
