    New Owner, Holly Michigan

    . Home many times have you pulled your boat North? My 28 ft car hauler pulls MUCH better and easier than this little 20 ft pontoon! I pulled it up, and didn't pull it back home. We now rack store it at Torch, Dewitt Marina

    New Owner, Holly Michigan

    Don't rule out Torch! 19 miles long and connected to Clam, Bellaire, Skegemog, and Elk. Record Muskie taken out of Bellaire last year. You can boat for days and never see the same thing. When your done, head over the the sandbar for some interesting views.

    Magma Connoisseur series gas grill/Chefs Mate

    Toon'd Out, I bring up an old post, but think it's a good time to do it as I bet I'm not the only one looking to mount a grill. You have had some time to use this grill now, would you do it again or would you change anything? I have the same grill and same mount. Planning on installing in...

    Detroit River...

    I work at the RenCen and see the River all day long. Pontoons is not a boat I see down there. Wind, shifty currents, and large ship traffic is why I think people don't boat it with Pontoons. Don't really see many on Lake St Clair either. Good luck!
