Spring launch has finally arrived!!

Well it's been a very long winter but spring has finally sprung, and with it comes one of the most exciting day's of the year...spring launch!! After weeks of prepping and polishing our beloved Seapickle II, she's looking great and ready for another wonderful boating season.

After stopping on the way to have a nice breakfast at Cafe 339 in Hobart, we made it to the marina just in time to see the guys coming around the corner with the tractor.

At home in her slip and looking good!

Well it's going to be tough to top last summer...new boat, perfect weather, and an incredible 16 day trip that we will never forget! We hope to take another long trip like that again, but unfortunately it doesn't look like it will happen this year. With high gas prices and a heavy work load for both of us we have decided to spend the summer exploring the southern half of Lake Michigan. With so many great ports to visit like Chicago, South Haven, New Buffalo, Grand Haven, Milwaukee, and more I'm sure we will have plenty to share with you! Lets make this a great summer and we hope to see you out there!! Ben & Dana
