Colorado native Lyn Morgan recently completed a 5,300-mile Great Loop journey in a 24-foot Premier S-Series pontoon.

The Great Loop is a continuous waterway that encompasses the eastern portion of North America, including the Atlantic and Gulf Intracoastal Waterways, the Great Lakes, the Canadian Heritage Canals and the inland rivers of America's heartland.

Morgan journeyed down the Mississippi River into the Gulf of Mexico, up the Eastern Seaboard and back through the Great Lakes in eight weeks and one day.

"Not sure if anyone has done the loop in a pontoon boat, but I think this one is capable," Morgan wrote in his blog on the first leg of his journey. "It is definitely not your grandpa's pontoon boat at the summer house."
