      The trailer can probably be improved with a fresh coat of paint. But the boat will need to come first…

      my wild guess was $600-$800k bid and a no sale, so I guess i was close. Could have been anything, really.

    Only $700k ?

    I would bet that there are a few very disappointed people mulling about.

    Here’s an idea.

    What if all of us in the WB community pooled our monies together and bought this lovely bit of history.

    Then we each could take a turn of parking this boat in front of our houses at 6 AM, and crank up both of those engines, just to have a bit of a laugh.

    ok, ok, I do have perhaps a few issues with my neighbors… but it would still be fun !!

    The Central Scrutinizer does not always like to be right. But, in this case, he was (check the record). Remember, the same sort of thing happened at Lake Geneva a few months ago.
