A good run...best boating video ever

Many of you all have probably seen this video before. *However, I've not seen it posted here so maybe not. *I ran across it again today and had not watched it in quite some time. *I thought you all may enjoy it. *Hands down, it is the best boating video I have ever seen and pretty much captures everything I and my family love about being on the water. *




Right now I am at about the life stage of 1:27!

Great video. I hadn't seen it so thanks for posting the link. It sums up why the oil changes and shaft alignments and toilet rebuilds and holding tank replacements and wiring re-runs and sanding and painting and varnishing are all worth it.

Glad you all enjoy it too- it really captures everything that is great about boating. Carl- I agree- it is also about life- and really- the best thing about boating is the time together with family and friends and nurturing those relationships. the same thing could be done with through other avenues....boats are just the funnest way to get together!

Tony: *I'm bunchin'- up phlegm here! *Great video! *Must be one of the few videos I've ever seen where the producer/director must know what he or she wanted to say, and how to say it. *An inspiring example of "how to". *Thanks
