    Nice that you had a good time! I grew up with a boat. Da always was fishing when he had any free time at all.

    It's great fun, isn't it?

    Get some rest now. You'll be amazed how much it tires you being out in the air and sun all day.

    That's cool! Sounds like you had a good time. I love boats. My grandad always was on the Chesapeake Bay with his. We used to go out there all the time when I was little.
