6 AM roll time.
January heading up north for most means Snowmobiles or skiing. I feel a bit out of place wearing my deck shoes and getting ready to walk on a boat.
The marina storage has a giant windmill.

Sure the outboard can be pulled up, that's why you modified the rudder.
Well with the soft deck and other issues this boat turned out being a bust. At least lunch at Audie's was great.
Also, fit in a trip to Big Mac before heading home.
