  1. Do you ever take the boat out on salt water? My brother has a boat and just goes to lakes in Washington State. He says it’s a lot easier on the boat.

    I don’t consider a 20 foot runabout worthy of challenging Ole Salty.  That said, you almost can’t break a fiberglass hull.  I’m a lake kinda guy who fishes with no bait so as to remain uninterrupted.  The excitement came from pulling young-uns on a biscuit, using the power and steering to full advantage.

    Alas, but thankfully, this summer I’m renting a patio boat and cruising Lake Billy Chinook at a placid pace.

    You mean the First Annual Ratburger Billy Chinook Cruise. Get your lounge chairs early.

  4. Nice boat.  My Granddad built boats, my dad grew up on them and I never got the bug. I always enjoyed someone else’s boat.

    Billy Chinook is a good place to float about.

    Understand; you get the bug or not.  Billy Chinook is fabulous, and the only way to actually see it is by boat.  I grew up with my dad’s Thompson lapstrake 16 foot beauty with an 80HP motor that was perfect for skiing.  As a kid, watched the Round Butte dam being built, creating Lake Billy Chinook.  The floods filled it more rapidly than anticipated.  Beautiful country.

    Do I get the Koi Suite or the Guppy Cubbyhole?
