Shouldn't have sold it

  1. Over the years I've sold too many things I wish I'd kept. Of course a couple guns, but I once sold an older Smoker Craft 16' Big Fisherman and I still kick myself. It would be perfect here on this small lake.

    Oh well, we live and learn, but sometimes experience is a tough teacher. I'll bet some of you guys have done the same thing. Right?

    I can never seem to sell anything because I'm a hoarder!

  5. I bought my first boat back in 1963. It was a 10ft wide beam Jon that was very light in weight. I fished many farm ponds and back woods lakes out of that boat. My son grew up fishing with me in that boat until he was a teen and then I made the mistake of selling the "take anywhere" boat and getting a 14ft Starcraft. There have been many times through the years when I wished I had that short/light Jon to use again.

  6. I also sold a Folbot that I built and it was a great cross between a kayak and a canoe. I miss it, but that was a very long time ago.
  7. Many cars and about a 1/2 dozen guns for sure that I'd like to have back. But hey, they make for good stories when you're sittin' around with your buddy's and saying, " man, that '64 Vette I had sure did move".
    Never been attached to a boat, but had and sold a Lund W-16 with a 40 tiller that was just right for my needs. Probably won't buy another though.

    My first car. 68 Dodge Charger, red . Black interior, black vinyl top. 383 threw a rod and my brother dropped a 440 in it. I traded it for a vega
  11. My Smoker Craft was tiller, but sure laid out just right for this small lake. We bought a pontoon in 2003 so probably sold the Smoker Craft in 2004. I still have the pontoon, but it's hard to control on a windy day like this. Also have an older Fisher bass type boat, but still liked the Smoker Craft better. Never missed a car I sold, but my first one was a 1941 Chevy I bought in 1953 when I was 16.

    Long ago a friend told me "Everyone I talk to kind of looks over my shoulder and tells me about a car they used to have."

  13. I'm not a car head, but my dad had a new Frazer and a new Kiazer. Those were neat.
  14. I do keep checking places like Craig's list for a boat similar to my departed Smoker Craft. There is a 16' Lund Rebel listed that I drool over, but doubt I can convince my wife to start selling and buying more boats. Our Lake Erie sailboats started at 20' and closed out with Restless IV that was 29'. Boats just keep growing. :)
