Re: Quality Marine Surveyors in Great Lakes Region
Grand River Raider,
. its been a few months sine your post, any luck..??
The last time I was on the Grand River was 1980, I had an ole Wooden boat called the Ali Baba which was docked at Ray McCloud`s Marina (Douglas & McCloud)
Is Ray McCloud still around, I beleive he was also a boat surveyor. He expelled me from his Marina in the winter of 1980. I kept my 1931 wooden Sail boat (Crosby 30`) in his indoor storage surrounded by the biggest yachts. I put a penny in the fuse box so I could run my power tools and heater during a sub zero night. It overloaded and blew out the Main Circuuit breaker in his locked Office. he demanded my key to the door, the first warm day of spring he put my boat in the Water and told me to get it out of there.
Ali Baba.. The boats gone, but I kept the name. Some people think I`m an Arab. (John McD)
