So Nicky, your saying your a "cuts it" for all these pile its. Cool!
Mike I never thought about it like that. I may delete my post and write a long paragraph explaining how I am 25 yr "pile it". Most of the time, I don't cut it, or pull it, but i always pile it and load it(grin)
Retired 25 years law enforcement alot of narco and electronic experience. Now back to work again in executive law enforcement. (wife wouldnt let me stay home) Been boating over 25 years on 7 boats including some commercial work. USCG master license. Rebuilt several boats..stringers, barrels of expoxy, replaced over 10 engins, installed many radars, chart plotters, vhf, auto pilots etc. Used to think it was fun! But know i usually cant stand the next day after being in the bilge for an hour.
Ps I hate typing sorry for the mistakes.
I've worked in corporate aircraft sales- buying and selling, for the last 24 years. Most of what my company deals in are mid -size jets, up through the large cabin airplanes. I'm a newbie boat owner, my current boat, a 2006 320DA/ 5.7 L / 350 MAG MPI is my first boat- and while I think about moving up to a Meridian 391, fact is, this 320 is all the boat I need- it really is perfect for me.
In my earlier days, I wanted to start a business that no one had thought about before. I then started geriatricescortservice.com. But that didn't pan out. Now I'm in the healthcare industry. I work in radiology running two business on the outpatient side.
As for boating, I have been boating for 25 years. Started with small boats in freshwater rivers, then my dad's 74 240, then a few boats on my own. I will never move away from the coast.
33 year old, first year of boating this year . I suppose that makes me a greenhorn
I'm a consulting systems engineer for a big 'ole tech company most of you know... Focusing on the security side of IT.
My 6 year old daughter will be able to answer this question when she's older much better... She LOVES boating!
I work with a company that manages industrial, process-based construction projects for clients throughout the country. We are currently focused on the food and dairy industries (since they're about the only ones that still make things here) but we also participate heavily in aerospace, recycling facilities, and the occasional environmental project. We are also seeking other opportunities throughout the country; if you manufacture something and are looking for some design/construction support, we could help.
Growing up in the Puget Sound area, I've been around boats my entire life; have re-charged the love of boating (well, really fishing) with my wonderful 3 1/2 year old son, who now thinks salmon are easy to catch...youth is wasted on the young.
Our Sea Ray is our 2nd boat since we got back into it about 5 years ago or so. Couldn't have picked a better upgrade.
I'm a self employed electrical engineer specializing in industrial control systems.
Been a nerd all my life, married a nerd and have 3 nerd children.
Lately been a specialist in the 44 Dancer's Q500 engines with maintenance, upgrades and repairs.
I've been boating for about 18 years now and the wife has been around boats all her life.
We started with an 18 ft Rinker bowrider, then to a 20 ft Doral, then a 22 ft Malibu Wakesetter (back in the wakeboard competition days), then a 22 ft Malibu Escape (again to compete) , and now proudly have the 44 Dancer. The wakeboard competition days ended a long time ago but still have the Escape. Gotta sell her this spring. Any takers?
I am one of the newest Sea Ray owners on the forum as I just purchased a new to me 310DA.
I immediately found this site to see what others have done to their 310 and what problems they are running into. lot's of tips and knowledge here.
I am now the owner of 4 boats (got to unload some).
As far as paying for these as the original question was asked, here is what I do.

Hi my name is Ian
Live in Barden ridge a Suburb of Sydney in Australia. Our house is about 2Km from the Nuclear Reactor, hence the 6 toes. The benefit of it is, we are right on the exclusion zone for building. So there are no houses on the other side of the street, and we have uninteruptted bush views. There is a river about 200m below the house, a bush walking track takes you down to a causeway which is the change point, Freshwater to the right, saltwater to the left. Popular swimming hole.

Boat wise, have always been around boats. Bought a canoe when I was 17, then a 12' flat bottom aluminium punt, then a 15' open runabout (held for 17years) then an 18' half cabin,(7 years) and now upgraded to the 330 Sundancer, so a whole new learning curve !
I did correspondence school from 11 years until I joined the Army. My parents became gypsies for that period, we lived in a caravan and were travelling. I picked fruit, and hand cut sugar cane at 14-15. Then as i said 9 years in the army, then 12 months working around as a Plant/Dlesel mechanic before taking on a job as a Workshop Supervisor with 35-40 Staff before being promoted to Service manager with that workshop and 28 branches. Then 12 months with another company in a similar role before branching out on my own.
