Working for a boat company can sometimes be fun!

I've been working for Doral for more than a year now..... and just hate my job. Dealing with warranty and complaint of rich customer is no fun... But once a while I get to play with the boats and meet some real nice people.

Last week was just AMAZING! In preparation for the dealer meeting, that will take place next week, I had to water ready and bring all of our boat to the Casino of Hull in Quebec. 6 of our boats are under 36 feet and we where able to unload them at a marina near the Casino, but for the 45 foot one we had to go at a bigger marina about 50 miles away (by water).Attachment 13851 Attachment 13852

So I had to brought the boat back to the casino on the Rideau canal in Ontario. It was an amazing trip, we had to go true 15 locks Attachment 13855 Attachment 13859 so to help me out I had to hired a skipper....... Attachment 13857 Veronique was kind enough to say yes

We got to see some amazing house by the canal all the way down Attachment 13853 Attachment 13854 and it was kinda cool driving a boat in a city 20 foot away from a road... Attachment 13858


It took us 2 days to do the trip, as we had to go true all the locks and 99% of it is no wake zone so it was at idle speed. So we slept in the boat one night Attachment 13860

It was fun as hell to see that look on peoples faces at the locks when me and Veronique where docking the thing. "how many feet?" "how much is it?" "You are pretty young to have a boat like this, what do you do for a living?"

Anyway, just wanted to share. Next week will be fun too, we have to bring the boat back

You know I hate you, right?


I know that camera of yours has a zoom on it. You need to use it more.

If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.

I love the way you start it out with "I hate my job." and still make me jealous! Looks like you guys had a great week "working".
