Both are expensive and high maintenance, but you get to ride your boat more. You can steer a boat. If your boat isn't running, you can choke it a few times and it'll crank up and run right. You can swap your old boat out for a new one and still keep your house and car. Plus, older boats don't trash you every time they see you with your new boat. You don't mind if your buddies see you being dragged behind your boat. When you get on them, boats don't gripe about how you've gained weight. Boats don't mind when you ride other boats. A boat's bottom is always the same size as the first time you boarded it. When boats retain water you can pull the plug and drain them. When you have no use for a boat, you can put it in storage until you're ready to play with it again.
