I just simply enjoy being on the water, power-boating, sailing or charter fishing its all fun. I'm lucky that I enjoy meeting new people and USCG 100 ton certified captain. I have years of experience on fresh, inland and salt water. I grew up in Minneapolis MN, each summer I enjoyed the northern Wisconsin "cabin on the lake." My first boat was when I was 10 years old it was a 16' aluminum Lund fishing boat. Today I get the same satisfaction boating still brings the same big smile to my face each time I get on the water. To me, its all about having fun, looking good and being safe and enjoying the time on the water.
