Often people have described a boat as a hole in the water in which to throw money — or something like that. And, there is considerable truth in the saying.
As I sit at the computer writing this column, the boat repair guy is due on Monday to work on my old 60-horse motor. There’s always something to repair, to spend money on.
But, on the flip side, my boats have always given me lots of pleasure fishing the Ohio River, skiing, exploring river banks for a picnic spot, watching birds or just enjoying the scenery at Kentucky Lake or Green River.
