RE: Whats more important a nice boat or a nice truck?

86 Ford f150 and an 82 18' starcraft mariner both paid for and never let me down, just put gas in them and go. Got a 10 year old daughter that WILL go to college, 14 more years to pay on the dump and its mine plus all the utilities, taxes and maintainence + a vacation for the wife and kid once a year. I look longingly at the new lunds, tritons, rangers and starcrafts the guys have in my club knowing that I'll have to make do with what I have for a long time. I'm impressed with a new boat or a new truck when I see it for the first time then its just your boat or truck after that, but unfortunatly the payment book lasts a lot longer than the feeling of having a new one.

I think NICE is subjective of course, so my 2002 Ford F150 and 2003 Lund Pro Angler are the definiton of nice to me, both are paid for and that enhances their niceness.

I don't think of a "look" as having anything to do with NICE, functionality for the least money in both truck and boat is real NICE! $11,000 + $15,000 = affordable = Nice

I guess I am somewhat lucky. Bought new boat in 2000, using 86 tow vehicle. Wife needed new vehicle in 02, she bought 02' silverado 2500HD. She lets me use it to tow my boat, she says it looks better than "the brown turd'!

A nice wife tops both...if you have a nice wife it won't matter. If you have a nice wife eventually the nice boat and truck will follow.

That is a personal preference kind of question.

I would say go for the nice boat! It is tough fishing from your truck. Plus you can always thumb a ride to the lake:) LOL

I ended up with the nice truck. Next time going for the nice boat. Probably have to buy the wife something new first.

I have the travel trailer parked and the boat in a slip.

I'd just like to know where a person can find a truck or SUV to rent for $20/day. I just rented a Dodge Stratus 4 cyl. for $35/day.
When you find one, please let me know.

Most everyone needs wheels.

Only professional (that includes commercial and guides) fishermen need boats.

Truck.

RE: Whats more important a nice boat or a nice truck?

My truck is a '98' and it is starting to look like it. But it's paid for and has less than 100,000 miles. The boat is a 2004 and I figure to keep it for a long time. So the question is moot. I am happy to be in the position to have both and enjoy them when I can.:-)
