    We are at the end of another fantastic boating season. As a follow up to this post, we slipped our new family member "The Jolly Nickers" at Fays Marina on Pine Lake in LaPorte In. Pine lake is about 15 minutes from the New Buffalo marina on Lake Michigan. We took several extended weekend trips to the Big lake this year. The vessel performed absolutely fantastic. At the end of each weekend we would return our baby to its weekday slip at Fays, one Sunday as we were backing the trailer down the ramp I noticed Tony , the marina owner checking out the boat. After slipping her I went to the office to officially announce my return . Tony said to me your Mave234 aren't you I didnt know what he was referring to at first, then he grabbed ahold of his issue of PDB and held it up pointing to this original post that was printed in the august issue saying this is you isn't it. I announced with pride "WHY YES IT IS" I left with a smile on my face. PDB made my day, conversly Tony was proud to tell others that one of his Tennants was in PDB.
    Thanks to Katie and all the staff at PDB. As always cant wait to get my next issue
    :-)

    Welcome Mave, sorry I missed this the first time around.

    I love the new enclosure, I had a very similar one from the factory on my 1998 Spector 19 Spectrafish, It was just enough to get you out of the weather and bundle everyone up for an occasional overnighter.

    I don't know if it will work on yours but on a chilly morning I would troll with the stern pieces zipped into the front of the bimini and hanging loose like curtains to keep the breeze off until the sun got up.
