Hello from Atlanta Georgia!

#1 Post by Cadillac Bill » Wed Jan 04, 2017 5:21 am

Retired. Main hobby is collecting and restoring antique cars. Our collection includes 1914 Ford Model T Phaeton to a 1960 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz. Also love photography! You may see a few pictures!

Just bought a modern log cabin (1986) that was used as a school. Some land and a 2 acre lake. We just got a classic pontoon, our first, a 1974 Harris FloteBote model 240. No motor. Needs some TLC, but seems in good condition. The deck may need replacing. Seems in fair condition, no soft spots, but the wood is showing through and beginning to delaminate.

Will be asking advice. First a good cleaning!

We are thinking about anchoring in the middle of our little lake and making it a little island.

I overdosed on traffic 13 years ago and left Lawrenceville for the Tennessee River. (We have water all year.)

We still keep a RV in Helen in storage at Unicoi Springs. So we do get back to NE Atlanta pretty often.
