Does anyone else hate boating and going to the lake?

My wife wants to buy a lake house in lake Cumberland and a boat. We defiantly have the means to do it. However I absolutely HATE boating. No part of me enjoys it. Have I not experienced it enough? What makes it so enjoyable? It would be nice to have a vacation home. However I d rather have a beach house over a lake

My wife wants to buy a lake house in lake Cumberland and a boat. We defiantly have the means to do it. However I absolutely HATE boating. No part of me enjoys it. Have I not experienced it enough? What makes it so enjoyable? It would be nice to have a vacation home. However I d rather have a beach house over a lake house. And the boat is just a thorn in my side on top of it. Any advice is appreciated.

There is a saying…

"A boat is a hole in the water that you throw money into".

But what sort of boat and what does your wife plan to do? I've had some fun times in friends or families Hamilton Jets or runabouts (big enough to tow a water skier or biscuit). They are fun simply to drive around towing the kids and friends. Or a dingy / fishing punt so you can head out and catch some fish?

Tempting, but not enough for me to blow the money a decent boat would cost.

Man I would jump on living on that lake. I not sure why you would want a beach house…sand in the house, hurricanes, sharks and other thing that bite. salt.
Lake house living is great…As far as a boat…you don't have to have one to live on the lake but maybe you just having been in the right boat…I am in to jet boats…not those pusE ones from Yamaha.
fuzzy:
let your wife know how you feel. Water activities are not enjoyed by everybody. Also think about what it is about having a boat that worries you. Why does it worry you? Is your wife s need/desire for a boat a deal breaker for you? If so what are you going t odo about it?
These are a series of questions only you can answer. I repeat – talk to your wife about how you feel.

The Boat community can be nice also living near the water provides clear fresh air and less dry heat. You might want to get a jet ski also. They are pretty fun to ride

Maybe your wife may enjoy a small outboard she can buzz around on by herself…i bet before long, you'll be out there with her
