Marianne's first 700 mile leg of the Great Loop

Here's a summary of the Chicago to St Louis segment of our 6,500 mile trip around the great loop in a 57-year-old vintage wooden 50' Chris Craft Constellation http://lifeofacaptain.com/chicago-to-st-louis/

Nice. I can't think of a better boat to do The Loop on.
Boats are to be made of wood, otherwise, God would have grown fiberglass trees.

I just saw Marianne stopped for fuel today in Lyons. She is quite beautiful. Talked with the Captain for a moment, nice guy. He described the hull as all original except for the chines, excellent shape. I love the custom wet bar on the aft deck.
Truly a fine example. 8)

I imagine so, she was Westbound for Chicago. I got an up close look at the fuel dock.
