Gosh it does suck not having a boat of your own. I'll ride on any boat, I don't care. I just need to get out on the water more, maybe next summer we'll have a boat. Who knows and I have unfortunately accepted it<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/sad.gif" border=0>

just be the best third you can be, believe it or not we have very little luck finding someone who wants to ride often, helps out, and pitches in on gas enough. <BR> <BR>If you were in wisconsin and all of those things, you would be riding with us four days a week. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.wakecoupons.com" target="_blank">www.wakecoupons.com</a>

Have you ever thought of the cost of owning a boat, for example: maintenance, the payment, interest, equipment, gas, luxury tax, insurance, on and on. I just bought mine in July, and I'm learning real quick. <BR> <BR>I love owning a boat, but it was also nice riding in others and not have to worry about anything but paying for some gas and having a good time.

Mike: i live in California. to bad cause i fall under all of those im only 15 but i still pitch in for gas as much as i can, clean the boat after if needed, and whatever else needs to be done. when i ride with other people (which is everytime lol) i try to earn it. if im ever in Wisconsin ill let you know if that offer is still up <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR> <BR>Shawn: ya ive thought about that. I've been looking at the boats in the less expensive range for ex: boats that have been turned into wakeboard boats with a skylon and some fat sacs but i dont reallly know how much insurance is and maintanence. <BR>glad you enjoy your boat though <BR>
