I bought this boat from the original owner back in 1995. My wife and I had just got married, and were living in my parents lakehouse. We both had recently finished school, and owned nothing. I came home with this one day. My family nicknamed it the "houseboat" b/c we didn’t own anything else at the time.
Well, 14yrs, three houses, three kids, two dogs, three cats, and a lot fun skiing, we just can’t seem to get rid of the houseboat. I have since bought another SN (95snob), that the whole family uses. I am in the process of fixing up the interior of the 82, and keeping it for a while longer. Maybe give it to the kids to use as they get older. Lots of great memories, from the day I brought it home!
