My dad and uncle bought a rather large fishing boat recently. It is a Bayliner Trophy and is a bunch of feet long. It barely fits in the driveway. They are currently overhauling it and getting it ready for ocean fishing. I am helping them install a GPS / Fishfinder from Lowrance. I will probably be invited on a Halibut fishing trip in the near future for my troubles, which I consider a somewhat dubious reward given that I am prone to seasickness.
l hope my dad enjoys his new hobby-horse long-term. My own proclivities run towards items which are small and easily disposed of when I tire of them. It is not without reason that there is a phrase stating that the two happiest days in a boat owner’s life are the day they buy the boat and the day they sell it.
