Fishing vs Pleasure boating

Just curious how many of you guys only use your boats for fishing, vs also using them for acutual boating activities. I use mine primarily for fishing but on the weekends the rods come off and the cushions go on. Fish usually 3 maybe 4 days during the week, then wife and friends rafting up, block island, narraganset bay bar hopping on the weekends.

FYI the best scup and sebass fishing is rafting up in Mackeral cove with 5 other boats with a cold beverage in my hand.

It's getting less and less but a couple times a summer If the boat traffic isn't to heavy and it's not to windy I get Sweetie in the front seat with two beach chairs and her book and we head to north beach.
Generally stay about two hours and then crab about all the boat wakes on the way home.
I still think it's fun. Almost any day on North Beach is fun

Fishing IS pleasure boating.
Taking non-fisherman out is torture boating.
If you don't wash your boat, use any cushions, and are sure not to carry any bathroom facilities (like a bucket) things work out OK.

Anytime on my boat is great but I always bring a few rods regardless of whether primary reason is family time.

Pleasure boating is being a guest on someone else's boat

I just piss on the side of your boat because of no bucket and being Irish so technically you are washing your boat

A cold beer while fishing is great. My family has been on my boat before but they think it's too small.

This will be the fifth year that the better half has not stepped foot on the boat.... I don't have to answer about not cleaning it. I will usually do a full clean up twice during the season. The hours I am coming in it is either dark or the dock is full with folks just heading out... I sold the front cushions the first year I had the boat too... just something else to store or clean... So if you are coming on the R2D2, it's going to be fishing.

What is pleasure boating?


Being on a boat with a pole(s) is a pleasure

In stages, I remodeled my Fortier, SauerKraut, to remove the stove, the sink, the refrigerator; and most significantly, the Head. There is only so much room in a boat. Where the stove, refrigerator, and the Head were--are now custom storage bins built in. Stuff no longer rolls off the V bunks when the boat pitches three inches. I ran the fresh water out to the deck stern with a pump for a hose shower, or washing down fishing tackle.

My wife hates my boat.

True Mike but:
1) I never break down
2) I fish almost as much as you and
3) There has never been any type of alcohol (beer included) on my boat.

My attitude is a boat is for fishing. You want to drink, stay home!

No boat, back in the suds.

Mikey, the booze reference wasn't for you. It was for someone else I know on this board.

My brother-in-law is a pleasure boater. 25' Rampage. All they do is drive to the gut between Prudence and Patience and drink and swim.

Of course his motor is blown so it's no pleasure now. Bad risers me thinks. Sea water in the cylinders and its a FWC boat.
