I am boatless for the first time in like 27 years. This was not part of the plan but it is what it is.

Sure I have bought and sold things in the past but never without something else already in the works. This time I got nothing. It seems odd being boatless.

The worse part is I am a terrible boat bitch. Sure I got money for gas, booze, bitches and can back a trailer. But I just can’t do shot gun.

But I am headed to Havasu tomorrow to check out some things. Any tips while in town would be appreciated. Maybe I will go bother RD while I am down there. 😆

Anyone seen any good newer cats for sale in the 27-31‘ range not advertised in the usual major publications?

If I have to build something it will be 6 months to a year for delivery so I might be boatless for a while.

Before you say it, NO I am not buying a toon.

I am not sure how Shintooo does this boatless thing and is so happy? I think I might have an idea though ;)

Been boatless for a little over a year, knee deep in a 67 Chevelle project. This time of year, I get that itch & start cruising the classified section hard, scene a few I would like to own. Good luck in your search, have fun.

That White/Blue/Red F is really nice...good deal!

So you have probably seen these but based on what I think you are going to spend on your speedster replacement...here is what came to top of mind... (price was a big assumption)

M29 Really nice colors...400's ...perfect size.

Sold the Speedster.

You sold the Daytona?
Nice Ride.

Car restoration jobs often lead to bankruptcy and often times make boat projects appear cheap by comparison. Please be careful.

Be careful with those pockets full of cash in Vegas. Enjoy the shopping.
Congrats on selling your Speedster

It sounds like someone needs a 60 year old Nylox.
