April 20, 2010----It is has been a dry spell since the blog was updated. Many apologies to the readers. However the weather has finally warmed up and boating season is about to start!
The 4mcgees are making plans to move onto the boat in the next few days. We are looking forward to many new experiences this year as we continue to travel the inland waters of our great country.
Exciting news!!! The April issue of Houseboat Magazine is now available. It features a fine article about the "Dream Manor" and its owners, the 4mcgees. If you do not find a copy of the magazine, the article can be found on the Gibson Boats web site. On the right hand side of this blog look for Gibson Boats and just below that click on http://www.gibsonboats.com
This brings up their home page. Click on the picture that is the cover of "Houseboat" magazine. You must have Adobe Reader to view the article. If you do not have Adobe installed on your computer, when you click on the picture it will show you steps to download a free version.
Many thanks to Brady Kay (editor of Houseboat magazine) for the article. The mcgees are very proud of the layout.
If you go back to the home page of Gibson Boats there are other places to see pictures of the "Dream Manor". Click on "Christmas 2009 Boat Decoration". There are several Gibson boats that are really decorated with lots of lighting. Scroll down to see the "Dream Manor". Not quite so many lights, but still nicely done.
Click on "1st Qtr Newsletter" and you will see a picture of the "Dream Manor" in the upper left corner.
Click on "Media-Magazine Articles & Boat Shows", scroll down & near the bottom click on the line "February 2008 Louisville, Ky National Houseboat Expo-custom 5900 LS series "Dream Manor". This will let you view a slide show of the "Dream Manor" that was done during that show. These are older pictures but you can see a few shots of the interior as most pictures are taken showing the outside of the boat.
