I know, I know. Its a Sailboat. How important could the motor be on it? Well, very important it turns out. Especially if we ever want to take it anywhere. As we recently found out a motor can be very important for a long trip. We had to motor about 36 more »
Getting passed by this little steamboat on my way over to Jim’s marina.
