...nope, didn't buy a new boat, but I did give L a ring, and she actually said yes!

I'm pretty excited, to say the least.

Congrats Ian, That is great to hear. Now as long as she does not try to stop your MOOMBA addiction you will be in good shape.

lol, thanks guys!

She isn't as hardcore about the boat as dad and I are, but she "gets it"

It's also her family that has the cottage on Torch Lake, so she's been a boater her whole life too :)

congrats to you both. The wife and I have made it 15yrs so far. If it wasn't for her who knows where I would have ended up.

I gotta laugh remembering my proposal; right after Vicki pulled the weeds out of my Sleekcraft jet boat, (the boat that started it all for Ian), and dried off, I "popped the question."

20+ years later, she still puts up with me, and my boat and car addictions!

And yes...Laura indeed "gets it", she is an awesome lady! Congrats to both of you.

A man is incomplete Until he is married. After that, he is finished.
(Just kidding) wishing you both all the great things in life, may the love you share grow deeper with every passing year ...congrats

My wife gets it too. She put up with my car obsession years, joining the boys and i at the dragstrip. All my years of motorcycles, building and selling them. And of course my boat obsessions. After 34 years she still gets it and enjoys whatever we're doing. In fact I think she's just as obsessed with the boat as I am! :D

We were there for the last weekend of open hills, and the condo was "ski out" but I didn't want to risk my knee so close to boating season, so we didn't hit the slopes.
