Nicely done Pat... and glad to hear that you're afloat at last. I won't point out that you have missed some perfect weather this spring!

Regarding your daughter, I reminded my youngest recently (now 17) that he is the ONLY person who was ever taken my boat out without me in it. He began "driving" boats when he was just a few months old, and always had a talent for holding a course. Before he could see over the console, he used to steer by compass course alone!

Cruisin to Kelly's island

Took the boat and my eager trainee to Kelly's island for a bike ride and some snake hunting, my kid likes em! First pic is of the boat and the van at Anchors Away marina in the parking lot. Second is of the channel leading out on the Lake and third Rachel running the boat, she is learning fast! Pic of my buddy Ray on his Wellcraft with his kids, and a shot of the south shore of Kelly's looking west/southwest out over the Lake.

More pics of a lazy summer afternoon on the Great Lakes...

Pics of waterfront downtown on Kelly's, War Machine at the dock, my friend John's 45 Magnum and Dave's 36 ft Bayliner Boxer's toy. A friend of mine owns a nice little marina on Kellys so I usually end up over there at Unique Marker.
I spend a lot of time on glass boats as well as ribs so I will be posting some of these from time to time as well....

Pathalla! Hi! I'm very glad to see you again! and your War Machine and so.. May I ask you? What kind of welding do you take use of for extension bracket? At present I'm interested in welding process and wanna apply it to my boat! Do you take TIG welding? I think I could work on steel better then plastic.
