Back in 1994 I bought a new Sylvan 16' boat....my wife and kids love to fish so it was a great new purchase for the Ash family.....3 years later I was forced to sell this "new" boat to come up with quick cash to buy the current 30 acres I reside.....I really hated to sell that boat and made a promise to myself, wife and kids that someday I'd own another at least as good or,....maybe better.
Time passed, bills needed to be paid, and I just never got enough extra $$$$ to buy that boat I promised the family.
Well, I was lucky enough to get some contracts with an insurance company for a recent disaster in our area (hailstorm) and when the dust all settled and bills got paid, I ponied up to a promise I made the family and bought a new (to us) boat.....now the kids are now grown, but we still get together to enjoy the boat.
Named after our daughter (deceased)
Who else has boats and how do you use them?
