Classic Craft: On our way up the Hessel, MI Classic Boat Show, Kevin told me he’s going to 'look' at a 1964 46-ft Constellation. We made it to the barn where this boat was stored; it had been out of the water and not run in two years, but that didn't scare us — it was absolutely beautiful. The boat was way out of our budget, but we were crazy enough to make an offer. A month later, papers were signed, money was exchanged, the Old Girl made it all the way home, only having to stop for fuel and food.⠀ We made her truly our own by pulling wallpaper, staining the beautiful mahogany interior, fixing boards on the bottom and sides, repainting, tuning up the original 431 Lincoln's and re-naming her Back In Time, which is how we feel when we're on our floating cottage during the summer. We’re still excited about her 17 years later. ⠀ — Kevin & Jenny Cupler⠀
It was September 4, 1932, and Miss America X successfully beat Miss England II to retake Britain’s Harmsworth Trophy, giving the crowd a moment of unadulterated joy amid the heaviness of the Great Depression. But she wasn’t finished yet. Just two weeks later, this 38-foot-long, 10-foot-wide, 8-ton speedboat smashed the world record on the St. Clair River, hitting an electrifying 124.91 mph. That’s more than 2 miles a minute — a speed that remains respectable even in the 21st century. And once again, her pilot, Gar Wood, was at her helm.⠀ Read our feature on Gar Wood by Heather Steinberger in our latest issue! Link in bio.⠀ ⠀ #boating #speed #history #greatlakes

Dock Box: The musical note “middle C” is the starting point for pianists. To most musicians, middle C represents the familiar key. Jim is a singer, and Holly is a pianist and singer. Holly began her teaching career as a music teacher. In an attempt to make a clever word play on boating and music, Middle Sea is a perfect boat name. —Jim & Holly Prast, Green Bay, WI⠀ #greatlakes #boating #puns #musical ⠀
