    New Member Boat on Order

    Just ordered a new Bayliner 16 Bow Rider and just joined owners club. Was very impressed by the dealer in Brea KY. My boat due to arrive in March.
    I am a retired Navy Captain but being a dentist know almost nothing about boats. I am sure to have a lot of questions in the future and very glad I found this site. My main hobby over the past forty plus years has been aviation and I own a Vans single seat RV3. An experimental home built that will cruise 160mph on 108hp.

              Having had a plane myself, welcome to boating, where toys only cost 5x what they should instead of 10x.

                Thanks all for the welcome. I will certainly have a lot of questions in near future. I will try to post a photo of my RV3. I have had it about 5 years and have flown it a little over 300 hrs.

                  I somehow missed the aviation tie-in. Great looking RV! Airline pilot here and I have a Cherokee 180.

                    Over the years I have had a Ercoupe and a Piper Colt. I got the RV3 about 5 years ago. I will never go back to a certified plane again. It's getting so difficult and expensive for annuals and IA's. I got my license in 1970 and have about 1250 hrs. A Cherokee 180 is a great airplane and has increased greatly in value. My RV 3 with 0235/108hp will cruise at 160mph and is a lot of Fun to fly.

                      It's a lot of fun that's for sure. I fell into the Cherokee totally out of the blue. I was casually made aware that the guy was getting out of flying, I went up to the airport and this is what I found.

                      "Oops. Take my money, sir." That afternoon, I decided to go try it out and I'm with a good friend of mine and he said, "Do you realize you didn't even fly this thing before you bought it?" I didn't feel I had to...it literally didn't even have a speck of dust on it. It's been pampered all its life, the airframe is mint and the panel has all been redone...IFR approach certified GPS, ADS-B in/out, two axis AP, factory zero time engine.

                      This is from yesterday out flying around a few of the lakes I usually boat on. The water is a little firm at the moment...patiently waiting for that to change.

                        That was a lucky find. Great paint job. What routes do you fly in your job?

                          I fly domestic which includes Canada, Mexico and Caribbean. Generally I bid for a certain schedule versus specific destinations. I bid what we call day trips or turns which is out and back the same day, home every night. So I typically don't care where I fly to so long as I am done around 3:30 in the afternoon and that is usually weekdays, two or three times a week. I would guess 90% of my flying is pointed in some direction east...JFK, BOS, BWI, CLT, MCO, TPA, etc. I like to go east because you are done an hour earlier coming back due to the time change. Flights out west are late finishes coming back and the day is shot by the time you get home.
