Cool boat Perry!
It looks to be beautifully made. The pooch looks happy too
How did you like it? Does it ride like you wanted it too?
With a boat and rig like that, you might want to put the Buffalo River NP on your "ToGo" list. You could float for a few weeks and camp along the shore. There are some amazing sites to camp at too. Who knows, you might really like the Ozarks. There are some amazing places to canoe and backpack here. I think you'd love it, especially after reading about your goals for retiring.
