The Ultimate Compliment

This morning I may have received what is the the ultimate compliment on my boat. There is a group I follow on Facebook called "Chris Craft Boats". Every month they choose a photo of a different Chris Craft to be the cover page for the month.

So this morning, I woke up to this on Facebook:

This is especially auspicious since this month was the 5th anniversary of buying The Hard Six. She was birthday gift to myself.

This photo was taken on July 4th this year; floating in the river, about 90 minutes before grilling burgers and watching the fireworks. 

Over the years, I have had people tell me I was crazy for spending the money, time, and sweat equity, on a 30 year old boat. Yes, boats are expensive. Yes, boats are a lot of hard work. Yes, they can drive you crazy at times. But the memories and experiences that they provide are priceless.
