I am not sure if this is bad or good. My wife starts showing me all these pics of boats , that I recognize and she is telling me how cool all the paint jobs are , ( her words , she doesn't really understand the gel coat VS paint). So like me jus go with it. Lol.

I ask her, where did you find those. She said. I follow that River Daves place on Instagram , oh ok cool. So every so often she says you got to see this one , oh wait look at this one too, I jus go along with it and jus agree how cool they are. Then she comes back with. Oh you probably already seen these boats and probably know the people's name that own them. Lol.

Then at Xmas this year I open a present and this is in it.

Now you have to understand. My wife really a doesn't know much about boating other than what she has learned from me. ( I know I know. That isn't very much , she knows horses like we all know boats ) I ask her where did u get that and how did u find that. Her response is : I am friends on Facebook with DCB.....
So I guess she does listen when I talk , so I am wondering if this is good ( for my future boat ) or this is bad and going to put me in the poor house ......

I will say this. My wife is very excited to go to DS and meet all of you that I talk about and share stories with. She had also said that the boats on the tilt trailers are bad ass and that's what she wants to roll in with .....

So again. Not sure if this is bad or good ???

Nice hat!

I say very cool and yes your wallet is going to be lighter.

I occasionally overhear my wife talking boats with others and she fields questions on drivetrain and handling characteristics of our boat and I think to myself that she likely knows more then I do. My wife often surprises me on things like this, she listens more then I think. One thing is for sure she listens better then I do.

Lol. I don't think my wife will ever understand the mechanics or handling of said boats. Jus not who she is. She jus wants it to be cool looking ( she says flashy)
And sit there and look good

Your wife sounds like she knows more than I do

I showed her this thread and she looked at me and said " what's the blue pill". She thinks boating related. Lol.

I feel where you're coming from! My wife sounds awfully similar to yours. Horses are her thing...but she listens more than I realize. I'm bad about finding something I want and procrastinating, thinking what if something I want more comes along? She's good at making me man up and buy it.

Last year we found the motorhome we always wanted, local, for a good price. We weren't ready to buy (or so I thought) but she said "we'll take it" on the spot. No haggling, none of the fun stuff.

Few months later, the carrera we always wanted pops up. I send it to her jokingly, like "hey, see...if we had waited to buy a motorhome later we could have this".

The reply..."let's go get it. I'm gonna send a deposit check on it today so it doesn't sell". Haha.


It's all good. I'll let her spend our money on cool stuff all day long.

If she was a really good wife you would have gotten one of these. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1458687520.816769.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1458687554.750067.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1458687578.279354.jpg
