1. What kind of boat do you currently own?

A 2009 25-foot JC NepToon SunLounger with a 150hp Honda


2.  What is your favorite thing about it?

I bought it because it was the only one like it on the Lake of the Ozarks. I do love the back deck and the fact that it has a removable bow seat that can be easily relocated.


3. What is your dream boat?

PlayCraft 28-foot PowerToon with twin 300hp outboards.


4. How long have you been boating?

I started boating in 1962.  My parents and I would head out for dinner at one of the many lakeside restaurants and I became the designated driver to get us all back to our dock around midnight.


5. Where do you typically boat?

We do all of our boating at Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks.
