Yes...We got a boat!


We did it, we have wanted it for a very long time, so when we found this boat it wasn't a very hard decision. We bought it from a guy who had hurt his knee and could no longer wakeboard. He needed his garage back and was pretty motivated to sell it. Lonnie decided to send me to check the boat out while he was at work. It was in Lexington (about an hour away) He said if it looks as good as the pictures just get it. Needless to say I found this idea very stressful, I didn't want to be the one to make the decision. But I did it any way--I definitely breathed a sigh of relief as I took the above picture--the boat worked and worked pretty well for a 12 year old boat. It is a Bryant boat, one of the things we really like about it is that it is quite deep--Good for keeping kids inside the boat on quick turns. We weren't really looking for one with a wakeboard tower but it is nice when it comes time for the guys to wake board. But it does complicate our desire to put the boat in the garage. Any way the kids are in Heaven they want to go outside and just sit in the boat in the driveway. When it comes time to jump in the boat and go it is helping us practice taking turns. They all love to go for a ride in the tube. We feel very blessed to be able to enjoy this boat with all our family and friends. We hope to be able to share the fun with others for many years to come!

Looks like a lot of fun, I am totally with you about buying something that big without josh. Cuz what if when you got it and then it doesnt work. So I am glad that everything was working fine for you.
