After college two of my very good friends and I thought we would buy and apartment building in Portland Maine. The Real Estate Market was hot and we were going to get in before it was over. Well, we go in just in time for things to go south. Not completely underwater but close enough. We lived in the giant red multi-unit for a few years and headed separate ways. Now eight years later and several thousands of dollars in repairs, carrying costs, etc. We are trying to unload the Red Best, as it was dubbed, in another market frenzy. Low interest rates, sparse inventory and a hell of a rental income this beauty is sure to bring us top dollar….. Right? Well before the listing sign gets dug into the ground there is a reasonable amount of money that has to be put into the property, roof, turnover cost, landscaping, screens etc… So my thoughts of owning a shiny new Clacakcraft quickly got squished this morning over a conference call. All this work and nothing to show for it. Ha. Sounds like the American dream. Either way, I still have the blue bus which is more than perfect for the rivers we are able to fish around CO. But, sometimes a man needs another boat. I am sure some can relate. So as I continue to drift boat search with very very little hope let me ask you this. What model/brand/ length do you like/ recommend? I have always been partial to Clackacrafts but have not really spent much time in many other drift boats.
