    Wifes

    Anybody else have a wife who doesnt understand why we spend so much time & money on these old boats ?? My wife came home last night & my credit card was laying on the desk, She asked how much I had spent on parts,I replied about $ 700.00! For a second I thought she was going to assault me,instead she took all my cards & hid them from me. She proclaimed that I was not to purchase any more boat parts right now.
    Well thats a problem, since I need about $150.00 worth of parts to finish this 750 slt, Im going to go ahead & order the parts since I do have one card # memorized I will deal with the wife at a later date ,such as when the statements start showing up.Anybody out there ever experience this issue.

    It's always better to ask forgiveness then ask permission.

    And yes, most don't understand,just tell her it's better then spending the money at a strip club drinking and checking out dancers.........Let me know how that goes for you. LOL

    I found two easy ways out of this.

    1. Buy wife a PWC.
    2. Or get new wife.

    Both work equally well.

    Or just have your single buddies buy the parts and pay them in cash. No records then....

    That would be wives (if you have several), or wife (if you only have/had one)

    Been there, done that. Gets real expensive after a while and still did not fully ease the situation.

    This sealed the deal. I bought my wife one and things got much better. Then we started riding with people that the 2 of us had trouble keeping up with. Next thing you know she askes me, "when are you going to make ours faster than theirs?"
    As they say, the rest is history.

    Good luck.
