Q: You have a beautiful sunny day on the lake. How would you spend it, and which Carefree Boat Club boat would you choose to take out?

I would take out a tritoon! Swim off the back, play cards, read a book, bring a cooler and have some lunch, listen to music and soak up some vitamin D!

Q: Favorite influential figure and why?

OK…don’t hate…with football fresh in my mind, I have to say Tom Brady (born and raised New Englander here!) Despite what people think about Brady…nothing was handed to him. His highschool football team didn’t even win 1 game his freshman year…not that it mattered because he sat the bench. He got the QB position sophmore year, because the kid who had it quit. He played well enough to get 1 scholarship offer…it was Michigan…he sat the bench again, with 7 QBs ahead of him. He asked his coach what he had to do to play…and then busted his behind to make it happen, all the while asking himself if he was good enough and if he could do it. Fast forward to the NFL draft…6th round draft pick, 199th overall, picked as a 4th string QB for the Patriots. He trained hard, proved himself and when Bledsoe got injured…well, the rest is history. Now he’s the winning’est QB in football…and still killing it at 43 years old. Why? Because he’s never listened to the people who have told him he can’t, or shouldn’t be able to. He continues to inspire me.

Q: Why do you choose to call the Carefree Boat Club home?

Because what other job allows you to play with boats and talk to people all day? haha! Seriously though…I believe in the product and I’m passionate about it!
