Hello from Grand Haven, MI

Just completed the USA Great Loop in a 15 foot Walker Bay RIB. Took 3 1/2 months and over 5,400 miles. What an adventure. The boat performed extremely well in all kinds of weather and water conditions. A lot of local media covered my trip because it was so unique! You can see my daily blog entries at

America's Great Loop is an epic boating adventure. . .
It encompasses the eastern portion of North America -
including the Gulf & Atlantic Intracoastal Waterways, the
Hudson River, Erie Canal, the Great Lakes, the (optional)
Canadian Heritage Canals, and the Inland Rivers of
America's heartland.
For the pleasure boater, It offers over 5,600 miles of
friendly, safe, scenic and sensational cruising. In addition,
(see the map), that's the "Loop". It connects you with 24,000
miles of additional navigable inland lakes and rivers for a
total of more then 29,000 miles of pure boating pleasure, and
you can cruise it all in your very own live aboard size boat.
Unlike crossing the ocean, it is close to land, home,
family and friends, as well as hospitals, rental cars, airports,
restaurants, tourist attractions and entertainment. Seldom
are you without cellphone service, Internet, WiFi or air digital
For those that seek a boating adventure, America's
Great Loop will capture your heart and blow your mind wide
open! This is an epic journey worthy of your epic memoir. It's
where the grass is greener and waters bluer. Destined to be
the greatest chapter in your book of life.

Well done. That is quite an achievement. The great loop is on my bucket list but on something a little less adventurous and a little more comfy than a 15 footer.
