I guess more people are social distancing on their tractors. I know I have been. 😀

The crane was there to launch it yesterday. Silver Sands can't launch it. The owner needs to hire a crane!

Seems like such a waste to keep that thing land-locked on a lake where you can't legally anchor overnight and where there are no transient slips it will fit in. Goes against everything I love about cruising.

I like to think I get around pretty good in my boat, but I was humbled last year when I shared an overnight anchorage on the Maine mid-coast (Port Clyde) with some folks that had just cruised there from Europe. They probably feel the same way about my boat as I feel about the boat in the photo...

Agreed. It is a GORGEOUS boat, but I can't see it being worth the hassle on our little lake.

I agree, but he has a successful business so I'm sure it's for business use only.

I posted this picture 'cause it struck me kinda funny that the largest boat on the lake was in the same frame as one of the smallest! Is it too big for the lake? Probably. Does it effect me? Nope! My wife thinks it's ridiculous that I've filled the house with speakers and subwoofers, but that's my "thing"...it makes me happy. I think it's ridiculous that she spends hundreds of dollars on flowers for the deck ( they'll all be dead in 5 months), but that's HER " thing"...it makes her happy. We all have " things" that seem ridiculous to some, but normal to us, so be nice! That is all! ;-)

Definitely a lot of boat. A bit of overkill for Winni. All the amenities of home!
I'll tell you one thing we have with our Xcursion 23C that the Galeon doesn't;
about 40 GPH less fuel burn!


I posted this on my channel from last summer...

It struck me funny too-the first time I saw it and it still does!
