Hi there, I just wanted to take a few and tell you about my family and our Houseboating lifestyle. My name is Mike and my wife is Korrie. We have three children, and we all live on the Mountaineer at MM 101.1 on the Mighty Ohio river (Riverhouse yacht club Moundsville WV) The Mountaineer is a beautiful 67' pluckebaum coastal cruiser. We have lived on a 38' burnscraft for 8 months a year for the past few years, and just acquired the Plucky in July. We bought the boat with a blown engine and contracted with Dennis Pluckebaum (One of the most stand up Guys in the Marine industry) to install a new engine and perform other maintenance. Just a few weeks ago, my wife and another couple got in a rental car, drove to Prospect Ky and took possession of our boat. Twenty Minutes after Dennis finished sea trials to check out the new engine we headed north. We left Tuesday evening at 8 and travelled home 500 miles to moundsville and got here early Friday morning. The trip deserves it's own post in itself and I will tell more about my 500 mile 2 1/2 day maiden voyage more later on. I just wanted to say hi and tell you all a little about ourselves. We plan on traveling a couple thousand miles starting in the spring and we just wanted to start making lifelong boating friends we would otherwise maybe never encounter.
Mike and the Crew of the Mountaineer
