Michigan Hot Boats

Just a group of friends who "think summer" and love fast boats. They gather informally a few times a year at a few out-of-the-way places to drink some brewskis, burn some brats, do some bench racing and last but not least, make a few hot passes—safely, of course. All are welcome.
