Do you own a boat?


If you own an RV AND a boat, you’re one lucky sailor! Er, skipper? Er, captain? Whatever you are, you’re lucky!

Having a boat along with you on your RV travels, or just in general, can be such a wonderful way to see new places. Kayaking along the shores of beautiful alpine lakes… now that’s hard to beat! Or whale watching from your own fishing boat? Count us in!

Do you own a boat? If so, what kind? After you vote please leave a comment and tell us about your vote. And if you don’t own a boat, do you want one?

I used to own a bass boat, what a pain! My son introduced me to kayak fishing and I haven’t looked back.

Had a boat when we bought our first RV – a Minnie Winnie – and after a year, we had not even put the boat in the water – sold it and never looked back!

20 ft pontoon
Other than initial cost never spent a penny other than oil change and fuel
Keep it on a lift at my daughters. So no fees for storage
Better than camping because of work schedule, which will change in 2 years. Till then , don’t worry about reservations

I was once told that boat stood for “Bust Out Another Thousand” but I don’t know that the same thing doesn’t apply to owning a diesel pusher. I have considered buying a bass boat for fishing but haven’t been fishing for years. My son-in-law however would love to have a boat that they could travel around the world on. To each their own.

2- 18′ expedition sea kayaks
2- 10′ inexpensive fishing kayaks
1- 8′ old school river/white water kayak
Use all except the river/white water one regularly.

I have an old 19′ Sea Breeze. It’s perfect for fishing and even folding the seats down for sleeping on overnight. I trailer it but haven’t used it in a few years.

Had a pontoon boat on the lake. Sold it a few years back after I was diagnosed with a cancer. Now when we get the urge we call the marina and rent one for a half day of full day. It`s a lot cheaper this way as rental on the marina slip was 1800. per year.

Our “boat” is an inflatable kayak, which the state counts as a watercraft requiring inspection.

No I don’t own a boat and never want to, but I like friends who do who invite me along, the bigger the better.

Pontoon boat for the family and friends on the lake, and fishing boat for the river.

The clan has a lakeside cottage with jointly owned canoes and rowboats. Paid for, no annual registrations, next to no maintenance. Darn near everything else represents a hole in the water into which you toss money. … well, I guess RVs aren’t that different. LOL

My wife and I each have a kayak. We also have bicycles, golf clubs, hiking gear, gardening equipment, a travel trailer ………. The unfortunate thing is that time is limited and we must choose what to do. We do not kayak very often.

No longer have a boat as I sold our 42 foot sailboat 20 years ago and bought our first motorhome. Now not happy with the current direction the campground reservation system is at and also going forward in the near future where the fuel issue will be. So we are thinking of getting another sailboat and will try to sell the MH before the market completely falls out! I think the most diesel we ever bought for the boat was about 75 gallons for the year and that was taking a summer trip from the Baltimore Maryland area to Newfoundland and back with plenty of stops and opportunities to run the engine!

I have two canoes and two kayaks (one kayak is inflatable). I spend an extended period of time in Florida on the Gulf and camp in a Lance 1475. There are way too many beautiful places to paddle and fish. Hooking a 26 inch snook while in a 12 foot kayak is a thrill ride! The canoe is so Bobby, my dog can come along while I’m paddling. The inflatable kayak is for the camper van. I use the camper van for “exploration trips”. Those trips are the kind of trip that I will be staying for a few nights, exploring the area at the campsite, and won’t leave the campsite.
Wish me luck with the camper van. I just bought a Ram ProMaster high top and it is now cleaned out and ready to start wiring and insulation.

12′ fishing boat, 9.9 up plus kayaks. Part of that hunting and fishing life.
