About Me and some Boat pictures
« on: November 17, 2015, 10:02 AM »
Good Morning,
I have been a long time lurker and occasional commentator when I think I can add value.
I am located in Holland Mi, on the east coast of Lake Michigan.
I have enough Festool products to start thinking about where to store them.
My principle interest is in Home Projects, Honey Do, and Boaty stuff.
I am a former remodeling contractor, doing mostly above average kitchen and baths and light commercial refits.
I now manage commercial properties.
In one of my comment regarding epoxy I was asked for boat pics. In looking at some I note that I have many pics taken from the boat but only a few of the boat.
The boat is a 1951 Correct Craft 19' utility. It was purchased new by my paternal grandfather. The company is still around but now goes by the name Ski Nautique.
The municipal boat ramp is 6 blocks from my house, from there it is about 5 (?) miles to the Big Lake
Couldn't figure out if I could caption so here are the descriptions

My favorite out on the boat pic, first week in September 2013, wind from the east and Lake Michigan like glass.

Absolutely gorgeous boat! There is nothing like an ole woody.

Correct Craft is alive and well today. One of their brands is Nautique, which is one of the flagship water sport boat brands. I had a Nautique that I used for wakeboarding. The "Ski" version is just one line. Not many people waterski anymore, as wakeboarding has so many more possibilities.

Nice boat,
Lake Tahoe has a boatload (pun intended ) wooden boats .
Very cool. There is a water front warehouse that is climate controlled,where a lot of them reside .
Good looking boat again
