Volvo Penta outdrives are the smoothest shifting and durable outdrives built, no thunk when going into gear they just purr and slip into gear, but when they need work done their the biggest PITA made, theres no easy job on them except changing a prop, unless you have a Duo drive and then even thats a pain.

My brother just "broke" his boat again. 7th time this year.
Me and K were gonna use it to go catch some redfish tomorrow afternoon but thats cancelled now. Misfiring on #2 cylinder (V6 Evinrude) and it won't kill with the key or the kill switch
If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger cheater bar.

Surreal's truck is nick named "Land Yacht" but that's another story......... I thought about a getting a boat, there is sort of a "fun and excitement" thing to having a boat.......
Then there is the group that pretty much says...... it is the worst investment anyone can make unless you have the dough to support the habit. I guess owning airplanes would fall into that category too.... cost of investment relative to return.

I have been searching hard the past few months for a good buy on a good fishing/tubing boat... wanted to get one by next spring or summer sometime.
This thread is making me think twice about it. Boats have that much trouble huh? I knew they were just like anything else, but I didn't expect to see this many horror stories... geez...09 Sierra SLT

A big giant one will have its issues. Fiberglass and big motors mostly. Around here (SE Louisiana, the best boats are aluminum flat/semi V (15-18,19 foot) with 40-135 Mercury's (not brand new ones). Suit our needs for hunting, fishing, tubing, hydroslidin (knee boardin), hydrosurfin (wake boarding) just fine.
Hell I had a 14 foot flat with a 9.9 Evinrude (late 80's) that we did all of that ^ behind and fished and hunted out of.
