So what kind of old boats do you have out in the shed?

I am commin to terms with the pile of the boats that I have layin around the house. I was wonderin if anyone else has let the old boats pile up. My other half around the house thinks that I need to get rid of some of these but I just cant. Anyone else have this problem. Give me some ammo!

Here is the pile/quiver that I ran into.

- 2 prijon hurricanes - 1 is a rodeo hurricane.
- 1 blue dancer (ah my first boat)
- 1 blunt necky
- 1 corsica
- 1 disco riot
- 1 slice riot
- 1 230 in a zone pyranha
- 2 m3's pyranha
- 1 bigfoot squirt boat
- 1 sin squirt boat
- 1 outdoor edge long squirtboat
- 2 custom made 1970's down river racin fiberglass boats
- 1 pyranha 420
- 1 62 project

Is this too many or should I get rid of a few? What do you all think?

I hear the gears turning in your mind, gh: "I can buy three more boats and still tell my wife I'm not as bad as that guy."

I have an empty rack in the garage right now...

RDNEK, how do you store that many boats and several of them are quite long.

A Honcho! blah!! isn't EJ recycling old boats?

Last year I held a free raffle at work for my old slightly cracked Necky Jive. The winner was stoked and paddles the beginner runs on the Poudre with it.

Create your own BOAT HENGE in the back yard. It's the only logical use and the river gods will forever smile upon you. The classics should be enshrined and worshipped. Your wife will love it.....I'm sure she'll excuse it as a much needed good omen.

I love the idea of a Boat-henge. That's ingenious. I want one too. You might still be able to get a decent price for some of those; but that's only if you're willing to part with them. I know a guy who has 20 (yes 20) boats in his backyard. Don't let anyone (even your woman) make you part with a boat. A paddler's relationship with his boats is a unique one that is only meant to be ended when he is emotionally and psychologically prepared for such a transition.
