"A boat... kayak maybe, canoe... " If you use a boat then by all means buy one but if it is going to sit for prolonged periods-that's a death knell. My best friend and I bought a ski boat together in the 80's both our fathers warned against it because it could impact our friendship if things went sour. Well we proved them wrong and enjoyed the heck out of that boat for years-blew up one motor so we bought another (we were skiing maniacs). I later moved but we still shared it just for prolonged periods of exchange-eventually I just let him have it-I got more than my fair share of enjoyment out of it and we are still best friends.
Cool coincidence : I will be teaching my boy how to waterski tomorrow morning.
As for the original post, if it were up to me I would never buy cheap cymbals. But who know what the future has in store for us ?
