Walstrom Open House! by admin

When we tell people about northern Michigan, we often tell them how perfect it is up here during the summer.  Today turned out to be a bit on the cool and cloudy side, but Walstrom's new sales showroom is the nicest showroom I have ever seen.  A big thanks to Walstrom's for hosting the event and being kind enough to extend an invitation to us!  The guest list included a lot of our customers and other influential members of the boating community.  Check out the pictures to see if you can spot any of them!

Walstrom Marine - Out with the Old, In with the New! by admin

The weather in northern Michigan has changed, and so are the sales offices of Walstrom Marine in Harbor Springs. We will be attending their grand opening BBQ next weekend (and you should too!).

With the opening of the new building, the old building next door is in the process of being torn down / renovated to suit the needs of Walstrom's customers in the Basin. I hope they save the "Walstrom Marine" from the front of the old building!

Nautical Mile Fun Day Recap! by admin

The Nautical Mile Merchant Association (NMMA, but not the NMMA) Open House was this weekend.  Many of the businesses between 9 & 10 Mile on Jefferson opened their doors this weekend in an effort to kick start the summer boating season.  There were hot dogs at a few locations (Emerald City and Harbor 9 I believe), and even a few dogs at Emerald City.

Donna, of Gifts Afloat, took a few minutes to fill me on most of the events taking place this past Saturday (video below), which included many of the businesses raffling off prizes (I'm still waiting for all of my winning phone calls).

I'm waiting until it gets warmer until I start downing the ice cream.  It is hard to go wrong with dogs, hot dogs, and boats!
