    Who else is obsessed by small boats? Symptons include scrolling through Craigs list constantly even though you KNOW you don't need another boat, constantly reading reviews and getting opinions about another boat you don't really need, spending as much time looking at boats in people's yards etc as you do watching the road as you drive.

    Let's see your fleet!

    Here's mine for starters.

    14' Koffler Rocky Mtn Trout boat
    12' Fold-a-Boat
    (2) JW Outfitter pontoon boats

    I apparently like to row

    Could very well be - My Dad got the hull probably 30 years ago somewhere in Tacoma and we rigged her up when I was a kid. Great little sail boat, needs some cosmetic work, another project.

    No pics, but I'll play along.

    12' Sea Nymph w/9.5 outboard
    16' Wenonah Prism kevlar solo canoe
    16' Old Town Penobscot canoe
    3-14' Perception Carolina kayaks(wife's, sons and mine)
    12' Old Town Pack solo canoe
    8 Classic Accessories Pontoon
    Will have a Watermaster as soon as I sell a couple of those canoes. I have owned several Ocean Kayaks as well as a Wilderness Systems Tarpon. My wife says I change boats like other people change their underwear.

    14' Livingston w/35hp Evinrude
    9' FishCat Panther pontoon
    FishCat4 float tube

    Wife says I get another boat and I'll need someplace to live. I guess I better buy one with a nice cabin!

    If Maine was closer to Washington I might lighten kayakangler's canoe load...tough to live in though.

    Beautiful boats Milt. The third one is so classic I think I'd have to find one of my 50s boating jackets to feel right about riding in it... gorgeous.

    I'll play too.

    1976 16' Don Hill Classic - pic 1
    16' Old Town Appalachian (red - no pic necessary)
    1967 12' Hewescraft Fisher (aka the speyspazcraft) - pic 2
    8' Bucks Southfork (no pic necessary)
    does the TU Colorado v-float tube count as a boat? naw

    Edit: hey Milt, did you have boat #2 on a trailer going thru inspection station? I think I may have figured out who the inspector was talkin' about when they said mine was the 2nd prettiest they'd seen. :D

    Ugh, seeing this thread really makes me see I need to rebuild my fleet again. I feel so inadequate. LOL.

    16' Eastside driftboat
    10' Skookum tubes (ODFW green) w/my whitewater frame

    Man, hard to see how many boats I sold off while I was injured. My sled, my aluminum DB, my two whitewater cats, my 9' Skookum, and misc float tubes. Mannnnnnnnn. Think I need to rebuy more. LOL
