    Cool!
    Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness, pays off now.

    Do these pics of the indoor storage look familiar? It's my boat sitting inside at MacRay before I bought her. Looking at your video was like a step back in time. Thanks for sharing it.

    Yep, I dinghy through those garage slips a couple of times a summer. MacRay just got new owners last year. They've been upgrading a lot of items at the marina.
    Wow, so you bought her in Michigan and got her out to Washington.

    I believe that is back in Fisher Bay. The lakes levels have been up the past couple of years so everyone now anchors in Fisher Bay. When water levels are down we usually only make it into Goose Bay.

    Thanks Jim! The drone is a Phantom 2 with a GoPro 3+. Back when I bought it, it was kind of expensive. But, I bet you can get great deals on them now. If you are looking for one of the best drones on the market now, I would look at the Mavic Pro. It's DJI's latest drone.

    Yup. She was disassembled at MacRay, loaded on two trucks (one for the boat, one for the flybridge, and trucked to Portland, OR for reassembly.....
