What I did today...

100 degrees and HUMID! The only place I wanted to be was on the water.

Mind if I borrow your boat?.........j/k
My friends are trying to find a boat to wakeboard with.

When I went on vacation we rented Seadoos and cruised around in the bay for an hour or so. Theres nothing like being on the water when its hot out.

Nice.

We had a 20' cobalt with a big 5.7L volvo penta on it. It was fun for the first few summers we had it.

My neighbor has a big 42' Searay yacht that is always a blast to go out on, especially since I don't have to worry about the upkeep.
