Get Out Your Droll Cups Again – Part 2 Of Gravenhurst, Even More Photos!

How do I explain this? It makes my pea brain hurt!

We hope you enjoyed the small taste of Gravenhurst yesterday. We certanly did. But I have blisters on my fingers from going through all the shots from Chis Bullen and YNOT Yachts. Today we start with a little boat house action just to make you hate where you live now. Cause these places are whats really in all our heads as the boat house we all really dream of.

So as your spouse walks in a sees you on the computer drooling all over the keys and your hands on your head. Just show them The rest of these shots. AHHHHHH! My head hurts.


Those floors on the boat are that way so your drool just goes into the bilge. Really!

And there you are! On the outside of that boathouse. Maybe one day!

    That’s the best post in a long time. Man those boat houses. So beautifully designed and pretty. How do you even build a home in the water like that??!!! So achingly cool.
    The funniest moment in ages. Intermission.
    The masterful work of a crazy mind. Bloody funny Matt.

    The 1/3-4-5-6 shot of the inside of the Boat House I remember well, you are looking at 6 mil worth of boats, first boat in line has original hardware made by Rolls Royce He has one of the few 28 foot Gravetts, and behind the port hole wall is another stunning boat, I believe a Duke. There are many boat houses like that up there.
    But alas still no Shepherd shots&(*&*(&_
    Nice Gravett photo boat though.

      God knows I tried finding a more powerful pump, but after 3 tries, I had to settle on this one. I should be able to fight a canoe fire at least 🙂

    Here we go… Each July Chris and his Chapter convince me that NEXT YEAR, we will be up there with you to cruise those beautiful waters. I have said that for the past three years. We were two weeks away from leaving for a week on Muskoka waters, and I broke my ankle!
    Chris you are now moved up to number 1 on the 2018 bucket list!!!
    Thanks for all the enticement photos.

    I’m not sure whats better, the boating, the boats, the scenery, or the Canadians, but its all fabulous until you try to get through customs with someone else s boat.

    mr. turbo; even more ‘interesting’ is when your restorer, for local tax regulations, has to tow the boat under restoration thru the border, into the US, turn around 5 minutes later and “re-import” it into Canada…. lots of ‘enjoyable’ time spent discussing the event in the CBP offices….

      floyd r turbo says:

      That is crazy, the guidelines for transport are not exactly black and white although they claim it is as there are so many different “conditions”. Having traveled back and forth for 13plus years hauling a boat for someone or myself on different occasions I was informed that CBP legal will be in touch .
