I've have friends in nicer neighborhoods with that amount of space and I feel trapped.

So I have more hobbies then a streetwalker has clients. Here is a fishing boat I recently restored. I spent about 600 bucks total and 7 days of work on it. What do you think.

Man, if I had that even less painting would get done.

It looks great. Are you going to resell it or keep it?

I am gonna keep it at the new mountain house. I like my other boat but this one is smaller and easier to get around. That and I think I will fish a lot more with it stored up there. I may keep it in the slip this summer if it doesn't leak.

You should move into some remodeling for profit. You did a really great job there.

Probably when I get a bit older and am tired of working I'll probably get into something like that. I love tinkering with things and getting them looking and working good.
