Talking dream boat..

ok..copying from another boat thread and thought it was interesting.....

Lets supposed money wasn't an object here....it's not part of the equation in this jest...what is your dream boat....

thinking and doing research however you want...if you wanted a boat that met every expectation you ever had...

what would be your dream boat...what would be THE boat that got your heart into a panic rythm and made you break out in a sweat....?????



for me....it's the Pershing 80 ftr....top speed of 58mph...of course sucking up a tanker truck full of fuel in the process ...this thing has me totally drooling and lapping at my feet....sex on the water is about the only way to describe it...I'd probably have to move to some place that has more water than the puget sound!!...

Cool Absolut Vodka Martini, Shaken, Not Stirred.....

Cool concept for a thread SP! After checking out your dream boat er' I mean ship, it becons the feel of a seen in a James Bond movie with Sean Connery tied down to a table about to be cut in half by a laser saying "Do you expect me to talk Goldfinga'? And Herbert Grobe answers "No Meesta Bond, I expect you to DIE!

Cool Yacht INDEED SP, If sexy were a country, that boat would be China!

Have to give this some thought Hmmm, if money were no object and ........

Anything in a 50 - 60 ft. trawler. Kady Kroegan, Nordhavn, Nordic Tug, etc. IF money isn't an object then I want to circumnavigate the world.

I would have to say one of the 120'+ yachts that can support a helicopter landing pad :-), even better if the yacht was a gas-turbine.

Maybe Tigers yacht, inluding "crew"! Might be able to buy it cheap from his soon to be x.

Actually, I believe the Sunseeker 60 would float my boat.

But for time being, I am fine with my 60 minus 41 footer.

Hey Brian,

Im, a native californian 40 years till I moved my company to this god forsaken frozen waste land. (sorry It's winter here afterall) Anyways, is McGrath state beach park still there in Ventura where you can still camp near the dunes?

Just wondering, I did a lot of camping there when I was a kid with my parents and sisters.

Jeff,

yip, mcgrath still there. Used to camp there too when kids were small. Now, camping for me is Hyatt instead of Four Seasons! I have a branch office in Chicago (also lived there as a young kid) and was there a week ago. Know what you mean about Midwest winters froze my butt off. Here in so cal, I was on the boat at piru yesterday! Take care, stay warm, spring is just around the corner.

Cool You can never go home......

Thats cool, nice to know that somthings dont change like McGrath. We did a lot of inland boating with my pocket cruiser, a 93' 2300SCR all over Southern Cal including Catalina Island to many times to mention and to the river chain of lakes, Mead, Mohave and magnificent Powell. How are the inland lakes as far as level? Like Nacimineto, San Antonio, Piru for that matter etc. Hanging in there or do they have to keep moving the docks lower?

Ejoy that endless boating season Brian, ya don't know what you got till its gone. Come on April!!!! in the mean time its ski till you puke around this joint!

Jeff-
