And my wife thinks I'm crazy for wanting to turn a C130 into a flying motor home I think the C130 would be cheaper to operate.

They're a bitch to park... prop wash blows others into the next county.

For those boating enthusists I have sailed for 15 years... a boat is a hole in the water you throw money into...

That's kind of like saying if my A/C goes out in my F450, it's not Ford's fault.

I have to say Crossroads has taken care of all the minor problems I've had at no cost to me other than Diesel to pull it to the shop.

Brad - I can relate to that, a great example being GPS units - car/RV GPS $200 - $400, marine GPS $9,000+
