When In Rome

"do as the Romans do". Well, when in Michigan, you should buy a boat. So I did. It was cheap enough and perfect for the "party barge" that I intend it to be. It's a lot of space for friends to gather and float on our greatest resource here in MI. Massive lakes surround me so why not?




So she isn't the prettiest but that can be fixed. The toons are in perfect shape and the 25 ft deck is new as well. A little paint (to cover that ugly blue) and some customized features such as tiki bar, tiki torches, coconuts, well you get the picture. It will make her the best boat ever, well, that I can afford.

How much you ask? Well, there are great deals to be had right now. Boats for sale every where you look in MI. She was $750 and in case you are wondering, boats are always female. I split the cost with my brother and friend Ella so technically its our boat. We still need a motor and trailer so she isn't quite water ready yet but we have time.

Until then I gaze at her longing to be on the water with drink in hand.

This brings back memories for me! My grandfather had a similar boat on Lake Tarpon in Florida. We had some great times on it. Do you like to fish?

What fun! What fun! You'll have that baby ship shape and Bristol fashion in no time. Hope you post pics of it's re-float. :-D
