    Wife say's I got sell my boat.

    My wife says I gotta sell my boat. I have a 15 ft Bass tracker aluminum boat with a 7 hp Yamaha 2 stroke engine and a nice trailer. This has been my fishing boat for the last couple of years. I love it and can fish 4 days in a row with a 3 gallon tank of gas. Her point is, I'm purchasing a bigger boat from a friend. She does not want the yard cluttered up with an extra boat and trailer. So I will make my wife happy, and because I don't have to sell this boat to buy the other one. I am going to buy something with the proceeds I always wanted. My buddy that I am buying the boat from wants another motorcycle. Last year he bought a new Weatherby Vanguard deluxe 300 Win. mag. Its topped with my favorite scope Bushnell 4x12x40 Dusk till Dawn.This rifle has 10 round fired thru it. It shoots less than 1 inch moa. It comes with 200 rounds of handloads his son made for him. 165 seirria and 180 gr. It is a gorgeous rifle and its mine for $800.00. What do you think I should do LOL. I am fond of Weatherby rifles, Pappy and me have 2 synthectic versions already in 270 caliber.

    One has to mow yards... I think you need to build a modest shed. Say 30 X 100 with 5 doors on the long side and insulate 1 section for your man cave.

    Be sure to leave her some garden space on the back side (baiting station for deer and such) KINDA DOUBLES FOR A SHOOTING RANGE YA KNOW.

    Clearly,this man is a genius!

    Next spring I'm putting a nice storage shed out back to keep the dirt bikes and my Triumph Bonneville in. I was going to plan enough room to keep a 14' boat away through the winter.
    (Basement man cave is already set up with a full array of power equipment on the benches, a rifle maintenance bench, a reloading bench, a separate arrow making area, a bench for my bow press and draw machine. The other side of the basement has my exercise and weight section and a 15yd indoor archery range).

    Nice looking boat, I love center consoles. But I believe that's a Honda motor.

    I would consider moving the boat to mow and keeping it. There are a lot of small lakes in my area where a smaller boat is perfect for access. Besides, do you only have one gun??

    Does your wife have only 1 pair of shoes? A man needs multiple boats in multiple sizes. One boat size does not fit all. Neither does one gun. Show me a wife with one pair of shoes and I will agree that you only need one boat.

    when we married, I had a 12 foot lowe john boat with 6 hp johnson and trailer. kinda small, but with high sides worked around here except when the wind was really blowing. then the kids came along, i was talked into selling the boat because"we never used it anymore" could that have been because its hard to babysit two toddlers in a boat by yourself? still regret loosing that boat.
