|Sunset March 4, 2021 Final scene from The Lower Place
As of Thursday, March 4, 2021 The Lower Place has new owners! I know it’s a shock to some (including me) but we are at peace with the sale. It helps to know she’s in the hands of great owners with a lifetime of boat knowledge.
In late December we briefly discussed selling The Lower Place based on the idea that we’d really like to continue boating – but in a more trailerable fashion. So many places (western Erie Canal, downtown Chicago) we’d like to cruise but required a shorter air draft OR the upper Mississippi River (beautiful area) that we just didn’t want to fight the swift current to get there.
We’ve completed 2 Great Loops, multiple side trips and 6 years & 17,000+/- miles later she becomes another couples dream. The boat is ready for another Great Loop, she will take great care of them. We will go home for a while, research our next boat, enjoy Pickwick Lake, our pontoon boat, our dirt home and most importantly our family and friends. Until the next boat purchase…we will join the “sold-the-boat-and-looking-for-another” support group that seems to be growing. HA HA!!
Thank you for riding along with us on The Lower Place we have enjoyed the journey and your company.
Stay healthy and God bless
