The weather forecast for the day was not good, but we decided to go ahead anyway. When we got to the boat is was raining but stopped in about 5 minutes.Boarding was easy including getting my handicapped son aboard with help from Captain Ted. The boat was spotless, we were able to open all of the windows and Jennifer was delightful. We had a toal of 16 guests all have sent there thanks to us for a wonderful day.
