    When I was about 5 or 6, I was riding with my Dad in his boom truck to pick something up. He had to back into a big garage-like building but the doorway was so narrow, we had to pull the mirrors in to get inside. He had me watch my side out of the back window as we were backing in and just about a foot from the doorway, he asked if it was all clear. I said "Yeah...but there's just one thing..."......then a loud crunch. The "just one thing", was that the boom was about 6" higher than the doorway. ...he never let me forget that.

    Oh, yeah...it's the 5 year old's fault. That will totally fly. With nobody.

    A couple of things.

    First, I'd take that bench seat up front. I don't know what your plans are, but me, a boat with a bench seat, and a drop-dead gorgeous wife out alone on a lake....well I'll leave it at that.

    Second, how well do you get along with her dad? I've seen a Lifetime movie (or was it Hallmark?) like this. Father-in-law buys boat, takes son-in-law on fishing trip, father-in-law comes back alone.

    Won’t happen because then he’d have to support her.

    25 years on Marine Division,Our vessel were starting with my favorite DOLPHIN ,Center Console with twin 175 HP O/B ,Mako Center Console with 175 single O/B , Boston Wahler with 175 H/P Center Console Great for running atlantic and North Shore Bays and rivers,Caught many a Shellfish/Lobster Poacher ! For the calm Lakes and rivers a Pontoon has its comfort but don't expect to out manueuver or out race all of the vessels I posted. But Free is free and what they say is true,A Boat is a hole in the water you will pour money into. Congrats

    Another option would be to drop one of those mini-houses on it and making it a hunting/fishing lodge.

    You must have seen a different movie. In the one I saw, there was a big life insurance policy!

    Makes for a plausible alibi as to how you lost so many guns in a boating mishap.
