    Hi Guys,
    I was reluctant to make a boating thread because i was unsure if people actually had boats or not. Anyways, this thread is a boating thread no matter the size/make/value post it here. Hope it goes well.

    Of course everyone is going to say SuperYacht...
    But take into account these thing:
    1. You need a captain
    2. Gas, these ships take in excess of 15,000 gallons of diesel fuel. which at the current marine price is around $4.00 a gallon, so thats about 60,000 dollars worth of fuel every 3 trips you take.
    3. Its a slow boat, I said no watertoys included, meaning no jet ski's, rafts, etc...
    4. You have to plan each trip long ahead of time, there is no spur of the moment trips...
    5. With such a big boat the only option during the winter is to bring it down to a warm place like florida.

    These are the cons, the only real pro is: Being able to say that you have a 300 foot yacht...
    So if you like the weight of pro's to cons then vote for the superyacht, if your looking for fun vote for a smaller size...

    Hmm...
    Im confused why this thread didn't take, any of you know?
    I assume its because ppl aren't near the water or don't have boats if they are...

    Yeah id say you'd have to stop around 25 feet for that, once you get bigger than than it gets too hard to control/turn quickly...
