Self explanatory. Post anything of the related. Pics, your ride, stories, etc..

Just got my NJ Boating Safety License :D
Learning how to sail and then see what comes of it. Hopefully get me something small to start.
I'm soooooooped! Can't wait for the warm weather to come around.

Ok, I'll start with floating devices

First set: Paddling out to bird sanctuaries on the windward side of Oahu and passing SHAQzilla's house

Second set: It's always classy to cruise down the Delware with a fun raft

I know man. Your pops need to teach me some skillz or I'll just drag you out to sea, assuming you picked up some skillz from your pops. Does your dad teach anywhere? I took the safety course at RU. It woulda been real coincidence if he was teaching that course or if he is the instructor next month when I set sail. I am currently drawing up a bamboo sailboat :D

I was on a sailboat for the first time when I was 4 weeks old. My first word was boat, my second word was dingy. When I was a young teenager I used to go to a sailing race camp in Maine each summer. I've also been on all sorts of various cruises through long island sound making it as far out as Nantucket. While I don't race anymore and don't even own a boat, I do like to try to get out a few times a season.

Eventually, I plan to build one of these:

Have the plans... have the strips... even have some mahagony to make the bow and stern parts... just need the space and time... :(

Last time I was on a sail boat, the super ghetto patched up sail ripped and we found ourselves heading toward the rocks. Fortunately, we turned in time.

I built this Comet class dinghy:

Between mountain biking, sailing, boat building, and my other hobbies, I barely have time for a job. ;)

Did you read the article of the guy who built a schooner in his garage over the past 33 years? Can't find it online -- I think it was a CNN video, but man that's dedication and persistence.

I got my boaters license when I was 17. Since then I've had some stand up jet skiis, a hobie cat, and a few boats. It doesn't matter if you have a kayak or a yacht as long as you can get out there and enjoy the scenery, kinda like mtn biking.

Here is my current ride at F cove last year. Classic Formula lines.

I am adversely affected by water, my father threw me in as an infant and I have never been the same..............................................................This is our current and only fossil fuel powered boat, I've owned many in my life and this is the best one hands down

Our giant floating condo we used to live on in LBI during the summers for 4 years, then we had kids, party over.............

My baby, It was in showcar condition, had it for 8 years and sold it. Blew my knee off that boat but had some great times on it.

Not mine but one of three go fasts I can hitch a 75+ mph ride on any time! Nothing like it if you have never done it.

All that and Stand up Paddle Boarding, Surfing, Kayaking, Wakeboarding and kite boarding take up most of our time when not working and raising the kids.

Laslty, dolphin #56 who has been known to frequent the Jersey coast line for the past 15 years or so and has become very accustomed to human contact. I had the pleasure of meeting him last summer in the Little Egg HArbor where I spend most of my Bay Water time. He actually let me jump in and pat him after I took the picture. I did not know at the time that he was such a famous dolphin until this summer I read an article in some mens mag about him. He is like 40 years old and lives a solitary life. I looked for him this past summer but nothing so far, this encounter last summer was in September.

Anyway, I saw the boating section so I figure I'd share my hatred of the water to you all.

I'm a newbie and I'm looking at a boat that is out of water. Would anyone here have the experience to look at a small I/O Sea Ray with me on saturday morning?
Interested

In for sailboat stories. I have dreams of learning to sail and getting a small daysailer in the future. Until then I'll paddle my kayak.

You: Did you take it out of the water because it was sinking?
Seller: No.
You: Sold.

had a boat (18' primarily fishing boat) years ago until it got totaled towing it down the parkway. check out hours on the motor, that's probably the most important thing, assuming it floats without leaking!
