1. How is there not a law all children must wear lifejackets in a boat? Incredible.
2. (2:00) Why is the boat listing so hard? Don't have they have a bilge pump to get the water out? Weight distribution problem?
3. (7:37) How much does it cost in maintenance and slip for a bad ass boat like that? Do you leave them in the water year round or do you pull them out for land storage with cover? Are they mainly built to fish off or just speed around on the water between your private islands?
4. (11:46) How much it cost to get towed from one of those tow boats? Do they make good money towing idiots all day?
5. For larger boats, do you hire someone to maintain and captain the vessel?
6. (14:22) What kind of a boat is that?
1. 6 and under AND 26 feet and under. No law to wear a helmet on a motorcycle. Bonus for head under water, already doused cell phone held above it.
2. Weight distribution problem. There's one guy at the port console and the rest of the sack of potatoes is all on the starboard side.
3. Starts at like $12 or so per foot and can get ritzy. Do you want a yacht club with a pool and restaurant? Or a rickety old dock with numbered days. How nice of an area. Maintenance depends how much you use it and how well you take care of it. That is about the upper-end of the trailerable vessel size. If the owner is a South Florida resident year-round, they probably leave it in the water year round. If they're from up nawth, they probably de-fluid it and lift it out and dry dock it in the summer. Or pay to have it sent to wherever between DC and Ogunquit. The boat shown at 7:37 is built for fishing. The black things on the top of the console are outriggers; the back of the console has rodholders, there's what looks like a rigging station with a sink(?) behind the second row of seats. There are rod holders all up the gunnels (forward for kite fishing) and where the transom gunnel gets a little wider, those two larger squarish grey pieces are lids on livewells. But plenty of people buy those just for boating itself.
4. Depends; not sure if Haulover has a special towing. Sea Tow membership is reasonable. Otherwise it's a few-several thou depending how deep, literally and figuratively, the sh!t your in is.
5. Sportfishing boats over 50-60 and larger yachts, often yes, there will be a hired captain. Possibly first mate too for sportfish, especially over 60 foot. Larger yachts have few to several crew. The extent to which the captain is expected to clean fish and work on diesel motors in cramped places for hours on end varies.
6. A duck-billed platypus.
I'm getting the sense the multiple outboard motor thing is kind of a like a big lifted truck. Boat owner is over compensating for lack of size and power in other areas of his life.
The top boat is purely for power boating. There's not a single rodholder on the thing.
The bottom two boats are rigged for fishing. Rodholders, outriggers, livewells, what looks like a rocket launcher in the cockpit of the third one, rigging station/tackle drawers vs. upholstered rear-facing seating....
If you wanted to go fast you could get a shifter kart or a super-charged waverunner. If you want your dick in a 20-something stripper with hourglass figure, enforcer ass, and hossmaster boltaroos you need a "my wallet is long, girthy, and rock hard" statement that all her friends can go on to see how much disposable income her figure, ass, and funbalalalas command.
