Tony, I remember the days on the river when your marina and Harrison Bay (they were last to move them out) were full of what I call the original catamarans.* Two rows of 55 gal. drums strapped to a wood platform above.* This usually had a deck house with a front porch.* They had a back door just to get to the pull start ourboard motor.* Now, that was yachting at its finest.* Crappy fishing with lanterns hanging over the side in the Wolftever Creek channel.* Everybody had their on "Christmas tree" pile.* Alot of times the anchor was a bunch of concrete blocks tied together.* Sometimes I think there was more fun boating then than now.* With a bucket over the side, things were pretty simple.* Some of the more advanced models had a toilet that dumped into a big holding tank-------the lake.* Excuse me, Head Mistress, but I miss the "good old days".
