It’s been awhile I know. Almost 4 months. Just too busy with settling back into to the work life to blog. And focused on our November trip to the Island to visit the house and the old girl “Egress”
Anyhow the November trip has come and gone, but the old owner found a few treasures for us prior to our arrival. Call it an early Christmas present. He found all the old manuals for the boat and its respective equipment. I discovered in this treasure trove the original advertising flyer for when she was in the Apostle Islands charter fleet way back in the later 1970’s. How cool is that! From what I could gather she was in the charter fleet from 1978-1995 or so, up until the second owner purchased her.
So here is the flyer.
The original flyers.
I also found the original operators manual. It instructed the charterers in the operation of the old girl.
This spurred me to begin the creation of a new updated manual to introduce our guests and crew to her. Perhaps some future owner will find that in his or hers treasure trove.

Wow! Those original manuals are great!

Yes it was awesome to find those. It has motivated me to rewrite the manual. It’ll be good to have once I get older and can’t remember things! Lol
