Thanks Busia. I was in Louisville KY last month and met Dennis Pluckebaum. His father designed the hull on the river cruiser and built them for Marinette. Later that design was used by pluckebaum for 40 years. Cool to make these kind of connection s to our boats. Thanks for the contact info.

On a side note, Upstate NY is brutal for a new boater...longest winter of my life. I imagine Rochester has nothing on Ketchikan. Stay warm friend.
