After cruising the Great Lakes, the Trent-Severn, the Rideau and Erie canals, the Intracoastal Waterway, the Abacos and their home waters of Georgian Bay, this couple proves any destination is possible in any boat.

Mainship is the Peoples condo on water

John and Gloria Peoples decided to slow down and take it easy after seven years of chasing gamefish on their Luhrs 340 Sport fisher. They accomplished this by finding the best of both worlds in a Mainship 43 Pilot and plan to enjoy her to the fullest.  They can run and gun at 22 knots or go trawlering at 10 knots and enjoy the ride. The Peoples find the accommodations perfect for the both of them and the occasional visit from their children. SITE SEE: www.makaicruising.com and BOAT SITES
