Gary has been dreaming of owning a boat. Just before Christmas I saw one for sale down the street at a yard sale; so I got this aluminum boat for him. Merry Christmas Gary.
With manatee's swimming and low water levels with limestone obstacles a boat with a deep V isn't a good choice for Citrus County waterways. Our boat will only drop a few inches below the water line so it's perfect for the rivers and bay waters here on the Nature Coast.
The boat needs clean up but that's what Gary likes doing. He already pressure washed the boat and trailer and he's been sanding the boat getting it ready for paint. He also took off the outboard motor and is rebuilding it. We hope to build a canopy for the boat with some aluminum pipe and canvas.
We spent a quiet Christmas visiting with neighbors and talking to relatives and friends on the phone and looking at lots of old slides. Soon we hope to be on the water floating like pelicans. Hope you're having a relaxing holiday.
