Having spent ten years in the boating business.........I learned that many boat owners....have no business owning a boat....they have no concept of the rules ......do not meet safety requirements......and believe that if they can drive a car...they can drive a boat........
Thats why we sold our new luxury fishing boat,way to may people an 95% were Idiots on the water,another 4% were Idiots backing up,unloading an loading their boats...We tried boating in different types of water,big an small lakes,the Delta,bay an ocean(in good weather) it didn't make much difference,we did fine some relief if we went went in the middle of the week.
All in all camping,fishing,boating just became so crowded with Idiots it was just wasn't enjoyable anymore.Sadly this is the way commifornia has become now for many years.

3 things I have learned about boats,..

1.) B.O.A.T= Break Out Another Thousand
2.) They are a hole in the water to throw money in.
3.) The two happiest days in a boat opener life are the day they buy, and the day they sell it.

Honestly I hope you enjoy it and get much use out of it!

You got a great value. Make sure you use it and have fun. We got this gem just over 4 years ago.

2017 22' Premier Gemmani 220 sport pontoon set up with 2 captains chairs and live well in the rear, 2 power down riggers, depth/fish finder, 115 mercury and 9.9 kicker for trolling with trailer. 2 years old with only 53 hours on the 115hp, wife said I wasn't spending enough time on the water and we needed a pontoon boat,,,,,,, yeah can't go wrong. We have about 160 days in 4 years and keep docked it on Lake Pend d'Orielle (Id.) for about 5 months a year. Used $38,000 and our first ever boat.

We've been having fun.
