Boston Whaler I had was incredible. Self bailing, tough as nails, did battle on Lake Ontario quite a few times. Also had a Mercury outboard.
I remember seeing ads for Boston Whaler boats when I was a kid, I wanted to be a boat salesman so read up on them and even had a subscription to Boating magazine when I was 7 years old. I remember seeing an ad for them that showed one of the boat cut into three or four pieces, with each piece afloat and holding a person as well if memory serves me. That impressed the heck out of me!

Bought a little boat for the lake, pic is at sellers house. Always garaged and only used non ethanol gas, 2003 with only 155 hours on 40 hp Merc 2 stroke.
Congratulations Dave! Looks like a nice one. Guy I got my boat from has a BW cruiser-trawler. He said they're virtually unsinkable. A friend could have used that feature last Saturday. He just bought an older Cruisers Inc with twin BBC's. Nice big boat. One of the motors was bad, so he took it out and was planning on fixing. It had thru-hull exhaust. We had "Riverfest" this past weekend, so he took it there so he and his family could hang out on it and enjoy the weekend. Only about a mile or less from where we both live. Water came in through exhaust and out the manifolds. Bilge pumps couldn't keep up and burned them up. Last pic of the boat he showed me it was upside down and only about 2 feet of it was out of the water.

New driveway. 21 wide x 45 long with 110 feet of sidewalk from garage to front porch to front street.

Expensive purchase but old concrete was crumbling. Long over due for a new one.

My house was built in 1950 and I believe the old driveway was the original. When they removed old concrete they had a hard time removing up to 14 inch thick concrete 6 feet from garage. LOL. I guess that's why it cost an arm and a leg.

That looks nice, I just did 50 feet of gravel going out to our woods. We need to replace our driveway, not looking forward to that expense.
