The Coast Gaurd brought some impressive boats. Red one is The Macinaw

Sassy tried to tie up... it's like 85' long.... boat it was trying to tie up to... 35'.... didn't work!!!

Heading into Hanky Panky cove..... busy as I have EVER seen it.... it was like LOTO... and that's saying something!!

32 Sunsation

My friends Marty and Carrol sitting on the wall with their kids waiting for the fireworks... which were as great as usual.

My buddy and I took my 14' Glastron out for the day.... had a riot in Hanky with it.... small and manuverable was the word for the day!! It was really tight in there and I didn't have a chance to take any "action shots" because I was too busy driving Parnell Olsen and Mitch Stellin around to see the "action!"

I got more compliments on my Glastron than I've ever gotten on my Baja.... seems people have never seen one before. I even got it out on Lake Michigan early in the afternoon before the waves picked up. First time in it's 33 year existance it has been on Lake Michigan. As usual, it ran flawlessly all day... as usual. I don't think I shut it off for more than 5 minutes all day.... used 7 gallons of gas. Gotta love that!!!!

Sassy was in Milwaukee few weeks back. New 94' Hargrave. Power and Motoryacht just did a spread on her. Quite the colorful, disco-tech interior. Wild. 7 family members own her. 4.5mil..............

Yup, a Hargrove. Thing was massive compared to every other boat in the area.

They were in their dingy cruising around McKinley and then saw them at a popular bar on the Milw river. I talked briefly with them, very nice seemed young. They all had Sassy shirts on. The next morning as we passed their dock, one of them came out and waved. I think they party pretty hard. Home port is Grand Haven and will charter in the 1000 islands. Nice article in PMY.

VERY serious. You don't make that kind of cabbage working in a factory, that's for sure!
