Spring is quickly coming your way.

Another week here in the south is ending for me today but I just wanted to take a minute to write to the people still stuck on winter in the north.  Your spring is just around the corner and I am sure that the golfers up there, if you haven’t taken a trip south to […]


Another devastating storm

Another really bad storm rolled across the Eastern U.S. over the past couple of days and left 7 people dead and many injured, to say nothing of the devastation to homes and property from the Gulf Coast through the northeast.  I am at a loss today to say or write about anything, other than what […]

Super bowl or Boat Show

Wow we are looking for a great weekend here at the store.  Kind of hard not to route for the Carolina Panthers because they are so close to us.  I know that all of here in the store will have the game on the television except Scott who will be trying to watch it on […]
