200+ hours 6 months out of the year and a couple of runs in Florida during the winter.

The joys of living on an island during the summer!

If you are the Captain running the boat, then it counts, your boat or someone elses.

Well if you are going to count other peoples boats then I get the crown Bob
21813 miles 1817 hours underway, 238 days on the vessel
and this was a low year for hours underway in 2003 I made 2 trips to Kuwait. roughly 20 days each way

OK , it will remain our secret !! Actually I was there first about 5 years ago when I kept a Formula 419 at Bridge Harbor Marina in Port Huron and took a run down the river and into Lake Erie. Been back 3 out of the following 4 years and it just keeps getting better if you know what I mean.
Now we have it trailered down from Georgian Bay and launch along the North Shore which is a bother but worth it !!
Look forward to seeing you next summer.
Bob
