Every dude needs a new toy once in a while. I thought a boat would never be in the cards until now.

I've got some good news. We only have just over 200 days left until summer. That being said it's never too early to buy some summer gear. Ever since I was little I have always dreamed of owning a boat. As I got older that dream seemed to slip further and further away.

A quality speed boat could cost you upwards of $35,000 easily. Even after that, you've got to worry about the maintenance and then where to store all year round. They aren't expenses that I'm willing to take on.

That's why this inflatable boat I found on Amazon is perfect for me. It may not be that fast but it sure looks luxurious. Also, I don't have a boating license so this will be easier for me to handle since it lacks an engine or steering wheel.

It even has enough room for all of my friends.

Watch out for my new ride floating down the Hudson this summer.
