Gitche Gumee eastbound in Cape Cod Canal.
On the foredeck it looks like two couches facing each other. I've
never seen anything else like it in the canal. And with some luck I
never will.

They call it a Deck Boat down here, similar to a pontoon boat. Lots of
room to relax and party!

Interesting. She does look like she's better suited for partying than

I agree they sure do look like couches, so I wonder if he takes people
on a tour of something that people would pay to see. Hal

There are no advertising signs so maybe he only takes his friends out
and they pay him by bringing lots of beer!

A party boat. Lots of room between the couches for the coolers of
beer.
