Four and a half:

'73 18' Browning runabout - 110hp Merc outboard

'76 18' Bayliner Eagle - 4.0 Mercruiser TRS (fun little boat)

'78 30' Sea Ray Fly bridge sedan - twin Crusader 350's IB's (PITA to keep everything right)

Partner in an '01 48' Trojan Express "yacht" - Twin Cummins 450C's (too much boat, EXPENSIVE and always worrying about everything)

Now the '92 Chap 2550 SX Sport - 454 Mercruiser Bravo1 (just right for me)

The 2017 270 Sig just ordered will be my 2nd.

First was a 1991 19' Sunbird w/150Hp OMC I/O and sold in 1994 after 3 seasons.  The kids got big and the boat stayed small. 

Been a long time between boat ownership but I feel like a kid again!

I did the "twos" and that was a mistake!!

My first was a 19' than a 21' to a 23', 25, 27 and now a 29" After the 27 we were going for a 32 to 36 footer. But the deal on the 29' was too good to pass up and we did not have enough $$ behind us too. But in 2 or 3 years, were going after that bigger boat.

One now but raised around a bunch of them! My Dad had pontoons, ski boats, cabin cruises, sailboats you name it! We had our own lakefront then but I really like just having one dock slip across the street to worry about.
