Im new to the forum and thought I would post a few pics of "Low N Slow" and introduce myself. We are in Chattanooga Tn and have our boat on Soddy Lake. I grew up around the lake since childhood with my Father's cousin (Sam Thatcher) starting Stardust Cruiser Houseboats in Chattanooga in the 60s. Needless to say, we always had a Stardust Houseboat back in the day. Being out of this hobby for several years, I recently purchased our "new to us" Houseboat and have been working to update it. My Father still has a Houseboat as well (87 HarborMaster 47). I will have several questions as I like to compare opinions when it comes to boats.

We are in the BBQ REstaurant business and our name comes from smoking pork Low and Slow

You will see the before and after photos here when i figure out how to post them. Hope you enjoy and I look forward to being on the forum.

Welcome, thanks for the pics, I like how clean your boat looks. I am just getting started in this hobby/obsession, so I probably won't have much info to offer, but maybe we can learn together.

Best to you,
