  2. I wish I'd have seen that, Van! That is one of my all time favorite flicks!! That scene where Bogie's stomach was growling cracks me up just thinking about it!! And when they blew up the German boat, fantastic. They do not make them like that anymore!!

    Pretty sure this is the same guy who was out at Fairport Harbor in the Grand for Years. You would hear his Steam Horn and then see him a little later. Very neat boat and well made from what I saw. I'm pretty sure his boat was washed out and/or torn up during the Flood a few years back. Rumor was he was going to rebuild and it looks like he did.
    Hope to see him in the Grand again.

    Seen him cruising the 'Hoga a few times, but I think he's out of the Rocky River.
    It is a sweet little cruiser!
