We had a great 4th of July. Sent most of the weekend on MV Miss Behaven enjoying the spectacular weather. Boating in an urban environment can be really fun. There were tons of boats anchored in Lake Union (one of the only days a year that anchoring is allowed). There were some amazing boats and lots of excitement. We stayed in the lake from around 2pm-12am. It was a blast.
Here are a few photos:
I was killing myself trying to figure out a quick and easy way to get some music going on the boat. I looked at installing a stereo, but that would be pretty expensive and time consuming to install. If only someone made a modern day boom-box that was powered by massive li-ion batteries I would be set. Turns out, the tool company Milwaukee makes exactly that. This thing is worth every penny of it's cost. It is powered by a 18v Li-Ion drill batteries. We were able to blast MP3s for ~7 hours on one battery! It sounded amazing too. Great great little product.
A couple on the boat next to us had a wedding.
Now, I know you are wondering how the heck we stayed out on the boat for all that time without using a bathroom.. well, we had access to the worlds largest toilet. Here is a video of Adam using it:
