I would like to share with you my boating experience that I had yesterday. My friend called at 8:30am and wanted to know if I would like to join him on his new boat that he purchased several months ago. I am on big on boating because it just seems like to much work and to much expense for a hobby. I accepted his offer because it was another opportunity for me to throw the leg over and ride the bike.
My main dilemma was how I was going to carry boating attire and ride the bike. Now, I could not ride the bike in shorts, tank top, and sandals. That would be to squidly.
If the orgers found out, I am sure flames would be coming my way.
Admins and moderators might even
. So I decided to use one of my children’s backpack. The only one I could find was my daughters Scooby-Doo(see attachment) pack. I did not care how I looked. I just wanted to go. Once I had the essentials packed (forgot the sun block), I threw the pack on my back. My wife laughed her ass off as I drove away.
One of the nice things (there are a couple) about living in Melbourne is it is a boater paradise. Along Brevard County, there is a body of water called the Intercostal Waterway. This is a great place to boat or sail. So I met my friend at the boat launch where it connects to this body of water. He bought a new Yamaha AR230. This is a jet boat. It has dual 130HP M-R1 engines. Wow, what a nice looking boat (picture below). It took about 5 minutes of idle speed to get out to the channel. Once we were out there, he slams both throttles on full and a way we went. I almost fell out of my seat. This boat hauls ass. We almost were instantly up to 48mph. I was amazed. My friend then demonstrated how maneuverable the boat was. I swear the boat could turn on a dime. What a rush. We spent about an hour and a half on the water haulin’ ass all over the place. What a nice piece of machinery it even for a Yamaha product. (No insult intended for those Yamaha rider) I wonder if Honda has a boat in the works.
The whole boat experience was a great rush. However…….., once I got back on the bike and pulled away from the boat dock, the boat experience quickly disappeared. I was grinning from ear-to-ear because it was more of a rush on the 954 than riding a boat.
So I was wondering if anybody here owns a boat and what type?????? Are there any speed demons of the water here on the org?????
