(1995) NEON RAINBOW
Got the boating bug in the early 90’s when a friend repaid a favor by taking me out for a fantastic day on Saginaw Bay. Ron, who was a member of SBYC, took me out several more times sharing his knowledge and passion for boating including navigation, charting and even the maintenance aspect (lots of waxing!) which started me down a nautical path. In 1993, I bought my first boat, a 24′ Baja. In 1995, several friends who were also members here asked me and my girlfriend (soon-to-be wife) to join the Club. A few years later we got away from boating to start our family but always remained members. Six years ago we decided to get the family back into boating by purchasing a 40′ Sea Ray. Louise, Veronica, Jack and I have enjoyed being a boating family. We also enjoy the friendship and camaraderie here at the Club. This will be my fourth year as a member of the Saginaw Bay Yacht Club’s board of directors, this being my second year as a Flag Officer.
