Thanks All. It's been a busy summer for us as well. We did have a camper canvas made for the boat this year.
Makes the overnights much better.

The week we spent camping and boating on Torch Lake was the best yet. Hard to find Torch this calm
in the afternoon.

Boat looks great! I would for sure consider a cuddy for our next boat, or a walk around for a bit less maintenance and outboard power, but there are less and less cuddies and walk arounds it seems each year. Bowriders are nice but they are limited in rougher water. And yes, I still have that old F/W, I didn't get to use it much this year because last year it blew the head gaskets at the end of the season. A bad overheat back in '13 was the likely cause. I decided to try to become a 'real mechanic' and see if I could take this thing apart, and get it back together. Well it took a while and a bit of cash, but I was able to do a top engine rebuild on this, with a pair of re-man heads, a set of Fel Pro marine gaskets and a new Volvo style center riser exhaust system to replace the old OMC batwings. I had 3 sets of those, but they are NLA now and you only get 5-7 years in salt water....
