I was out driving around waiting for Rambunctious yesterday so I started checking out the ramps and marina's in the area.

Have any of you EVER seen this???? Simply awsome!!

Enclosed boat trailers! And some Classic Wood. Anne is a 1937 and Fleet Wood is a 1958. Both are Chris Crafts.

Took this as we headed out the Holland channel. This is called Big Red. Local landmark and one of the most photographed lighthouses in the USA. Note the flag is totally lifeless.

Foul, did you see how they loaded the boats in the enclosed trailers? Did they dunk the whole box?

I got there just as they were getting out. Yes, they simply back it in like a regular trailer. Asked them if they have trouble with them floating, they said no.

Love that shot 'Foul ... I've seen oil paintings and pics of this, but never knew (or checked out ) where it was located. Nice! We have some nice ones in NJ ... I've always liked lighthouses ... or maybe it was the boating up to them.
