We continue to enjoy our new boat.Last weekend we spent the night on the lake and it was so peaceful.We were at anchor and just watched movies,played cards,and relaxed.......waking up to a beautiful sunrise on a perfectly calm lake.The morning cruise was great and we were one of the few boats on the water and certainly the biggest!!We have just installed some new Garmin electronics which we're learning to use. Life is good!

We anchored our new Gibson in a quiet cove on Lake Travis in Austin. At sunset as we relaxed on the upper fly bridge we watched 14 or 15 deer come down to the waters edge to drink.After a restful night of sleep we watched the sun rise as we had our coffee. Later we raised the windlass
anchor(a recommendation made by Scott Bachman to add this option was valuable) and cruised
the lake on a beautiful summer morning. Life is good.
My wife and I recently purchased a Gibson55LS houseboat from Wahoo Marine Sales in St.Charles,Mo. The owner of Wahoo Marine sold us this boat. His name is Scott Bachman.
I recently retired as President of JcPenney Direct(Catalog and Internet). I have never owned
a boat this big and it can be intimidating. Fortunately for my wife and I Scott doesn't just sell
boats........he builds relationships! He lived up to every part of the deal and more. This is why
he sells more Gibson's than any other dealer. Scott made sure the boat got delivered properly from St.Charles to Lake Travis in Austin. He even came down with his wife and their two boys
to teach my wife and I how to operate this vessel. Scott is a family man with a great family.
His oldest son(10 years old) even helped with the orientation over a period of several days.
Scott's Dad also goes out to help their customers get started. We are so happy we bought our boat from Scott at Wahoo Marine. By the time Scott left I could handle the boat well enough
to begin to enjoy it and do we ever. It's a great boat and we are having a great summer thanks to Scott and his family.If you are in the market call Scott Bachman at Wahoo!!
