Those are beautiful. Super jealous you get to park in your garage. I need the space for the trucks up here in western NY.

I told my wife that I wanted three things when we were shopping for the new house last Spring. a Pool, a finished basement and a three car garage for the boat... guess who got none of these things? The kitchen is amazing though :(

That's funny. I have all your wishes but the pool. Can't complain. When we built the house it had too fit at least a 26ft boat. So I'm good for now. No way would I keep the boat anywhere else. If it's a hassle to use it won't get used. So we made it hassle free. Next step hopefully will be on the water.

I keep the boat at the house in the summer months - May and June it's at the lake house and then there's 6 weeks that my aunt and uncle are at the house and I pull it. Usually schedule a trip to another lake during that time - but the winter kills me that i can't go out in the garage and tinker.

Getting ready to store it in a heated pole barn for cheap. $12/foot or something. I guess the new baby will have to fill the void.

Thank you very much. It'll be our third boy.

Now I just wish the little animal would get here already, He's been giving out false alarms for a week straight!

The wife is extremely pleasant and soooo patient with everyone right now :shock:

Just bringing this thread to the top. Has anybody done any upgrades this winter? Season is right around the corner. Planning on doing anything? I just started a BIG project :D I don't want to divulge yet until I can post lots of pictures. It's going to be great I'm excited.

I've been looking at letters trying to figure out a name for the boat.

Those props are great.

I sent somebody your way from the other board regarding the yellow boat not sure if they reached out.

I haven't done anything yet but I did notice my "T" is cracked on the starboard side... It's fine and only I would notice but I'm insane and i want to replace it.

Might add new stereo BB recommended when I get it but otherwise nothing. I take her out of storage tax day and then spend the next few weeks detailing the @#$%&* out of her. There's a reason that 2002 looks like it just rolled off the boat show floor...

I am looking to upgrade the 6.5" speakers. Does anyone know the speaker depth specifications for a 2006 Cobalt 200? I can't find them anywhere online. I'm leaning towards some MB Quarts with the blue LED lights.

I bet those chrome registration decals will look great. Be sure to post some pics when you get them on!
