Stay tuned for a photo of the boat – a 2011 pontoon boat or take $10,000 cash. More info to come!
- the 2nd Annual Boat Decorating Contest for the July 4th weekend (judging on July 3rd) is also being planned – entries can choose any theme, a judges’ boat will be added to allow a longer and closer view and there is talk of trophies and categories.
