    Here are a few more used and abused old Sea Rays. Sad to see them not being enjoyed on this holiday weekend.

    A lot of these old boats graduate to being a trailer on water. Some folks have figured out that slip rates are often less expensive than trailer park space rents. They could care less about the condition of their trailer, as long as it continues to float.

    Being a responsible boat owner, i'm ocd about maintenance, and tracking down small things before they become big things, because like everyone else, i'm always aware of that small fear in the back of my mind of coming to my marina and finding my boat at the bottom.

    But then I see all of these boats neglected, sitting in disrepair, and i wonder how they're still floating, and i take a deep breath and remember my boat is fine

    This one sat like this tied to a marina on the river we have a place on florida. Identical to my 2nd Sea Ray however mine was in slightly better shape. 2016-09-10 09.59.33.jpg

    That is strangely beautiful (maybe I am just strange??) It reminds me of a picture I took in Barcelona:
