47 foot Fountain cigarette boat ride .... WOW!!!!


Recommended Posts

Just thought I would share a thrill I have never experienced before.


This weekend a local group sponsors an activity called a poker run for charity. It raises about $50,000. A GREAT event.


There are about 40 to 45 cigarette boats that participate. I was luck enough to be invited to ride on one Sunday.


The custom paint job on one of these was $80,000!!!


I have been on several that were close to shore just riding around. But, yesterday I was able to really go out into open water for the first time. We are very close to Lake Michigan on Lake Charlevoix. The water here looks like the Caribbean it is so clean.


I have to say this will be one of my favorite memories!


Here is the link to the event last year:

Hey .. if you're going to blow a bundle of money on a power boat that's certainly the way to go .. and go .. and go.
