So how many years have you been on the water fishing?
How many boats have you owned over the years?

My number is 54 years fishing and 21 boats .

We're not old, we just got an early start. Been on the water since I was in diapers and am on my 6th boat. That's not counting the ones I grew up on.

Started fishing with my Dad and Poppa when I was 5, I am now 63 so 58 years and 3 boats with my Dad and 8 for me personally. Can still see and remember the smell of a cigar or pipe in Poppa's mouth as he sat in the seat while we were trolling for stripers and bluefish back home. Those were good times!

Winner winner chicken dinner, so far. My first trip was with my dad when I was 4 at a lake in Arkansas. I caught bream and crappie, fell in love and have fed my addiction ever since. I am now 65 and still love fishing, so that would be 61 years. I have over the years migrated to the green demon. I have had access to aluminum v hulls, Jon, glass boats and pontoon barges my whole life. I have owned personally 1 pontoon barge and 3 nice boats, 01 nitro, 05 puma and 17 puma.

46 years, 3 personal boats. Fished out of 1 with granddad and 1 with my dad. My first new boat was a 1993 Cajun Angler with a Johnson 150 Fast Strike. Lasted me 23 years and it was still running strong when I sold it last year. It was hard watching the new owner pull it out of my shop. My two kids grew up in that Cajun. Some of my best times with friends and family have been in a boat.

started fishing with my Dad at age 4-5...am 78 now and still fish just not as much....18 boats that I can recall however had demo deal with OMC/Javelin for 6-7 years.....almost nobody owned a bass boat prior to tournaments starting up back in early 70's....most people were like me and owned a small outboard engine that we carried to the lake and rented a boat for the day...

It's about ~50years for me and 5 boats.
4 Skeeters and a Nitro.
Throw in a few tubes and a canoe for good measure. I could use a Kayak now.
Probably good for another 15 years and one more boat in my future. fish thumb

I'm old school and been fishing 49 years, 4 boats and the 4th boat is a 1994 Ranger VS482. Everything works including the 175 Merc I rebuilt myself last year for $1200. Everything on the boat works and believe it or not, the gel coat still shines. You don't need a new boat if the old one still works and is maintained.

The only difference between now and 50 years ago is, there is a hell of a lot more fisherman trying to fish the same water. Not to mention, all of them are going WOFT to get there. Amazing how things have changed and amazing to watch them fly by into a cove. Then fly out of the cove 15 minutes later....
