Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Wanna know how many rods and reels I have. Don't ask me, ask my wife. She keeps up with all that stuff. I'm sure at some point in the future she will use it as ammo to get something she wants...

zactly right! My wife and I have fished out of a 10ft jon with hard plastic seats the past two years and it has been less than comfortable. So the lure I used to hook her on the bigger Lowe was a sun (casting) deck for her to tan and read on. Only problem is she is also asking if there would be a place to put an awning for when the sun gets too hot! #-o
We'll work through that, but I have my boat and not a lot of grief so far. What would we do without them? =D>
I never learned a single thing while I was talking.

A 1989 Lowe 1640 Jon on a 1967 Art Roll trailer powered by a 1970 4 HP Mercury... no, I'm not in a hurry.

That can be an advantage.........you can replace the old one with new and just say "I always had this....."

Luckily she only knows quantity... not how much each cost. Otherwise I'd be in deep sheite as well.

My wife and I put 10% of our checks in separate savings accounts.
She doesn't have to know what I spend and I don't know how much she has saved up.

Works good for me. See something I want and decide if it's worth waiting X weeks for.
Saved me $200 on my outboard. By the time I had the money the dealer had come down on the price.

BTW Those are SUN decks not casting decks. For laying out you know. :mrgreen:

Only major purchases need to go through the appropriations committee :)

I get a bi-weekly allowance that I can manage however I like :)

If you need a defense for any male-type craziness.....just count the shoes in her closet.

We've never had any issues (married 51 years) with my toys....but...just in case...I should take a picture of the shoes. Ha! Rich

That's like when my brother's wife comes out to the garage while my brothers working on the 77 25hp evinrude and tells him to just take $400 out of bank and buy a new outboard.

Wives are special arn't they? I been trying for 30 years to get a bigger boat but I still am bobbing around in my little 12 1/2 ft. Grumman fixerupper, I still don't have a good floor or deck in it. And it don't look any better for this summer either, had a fire at work and I been off since Oct. waiting for the repairs to get finished :cry: only worked 3 weeks after a year off so not eldigable for unenjoyment, so we are living on just the mil. retirement check and just slipping by, barely. Be lucky if I can even get the boat out and have a few bucks to be able to get out to the lake.
Just Fishen!!
