I would share a brief story of a man’s love for his wife. You
see, my husband Martin has never owned a houseboat before and I had spent a
brief time aboard one and always loved it. Well he purchased an older Lazy Days
1989 widebody and when we purchased it the boat had five inches of water in her
hull. We moved her out of brackish water in Florida
to Aqualand Marina in Georgia.
We then completely overhauled her and transformed her into an amazing vessel.
My husband’s relentless pursuit took one year to complete,
giving every spare minute of the year into making her beautiful as he rebuilt
her back into original form. We have people every weekend who ask for a tour
and we take great pride in taking her out to cruise the water. We did almost
all the work ourselves including, but not limited to, new plumbing lines, all
electrical work, HVAC duct work with units as well as the windows.
My husband has never put in a headliner, yet he did it so
perfectly. There is no place I'd rather be and his love for me to attempt something
he knew nothing about—well, let’s just say I'm very lucky.
