This latest issue of the Brass Bell features some fantastic stories and as usual one of our center spread ads. The headline reads, “Boats Designed To Bring Couples Together, Even Married Ones. It still makes us laugh, since it’s true on so many levels.
We here at Woody Boater love the opportunity to take new folks out on the boat, but to be honest, the time I spend with the Boatress alone are treasured moments and truly do soften the edge of living with an idiot like myself. Sometimes the entire ride can be silent, but so much is said with a smile and moment with your better half.
The couple in the ad is Bob and Susan Bryson and they live on Harsens Island and summer in the cool octagonal house we spent time at during the big show.
And owns an amazing marina and marine construction company in the area, called Tashmoo Marine up near Algonac and have been married for years and have a full boat load of kids…. Apparently this beautiful wife thing is normal up there in Michigan. Something about Island Life and having two week long summers helps. The boat is a very rare Chris Craft Racing Runabout named Sweet Water and spent part of its life in Australia. Bob and Sue have had the boat for close to 20 years.
