Carl,
Another great idea! If I paint it lime green, I could name the boat the "cuba Libre" or "Margaritaville"
Thanks,
Jim

Jim,

I all about safety. Boat will be rafting up and just coming close to have a look and some of them will be inexperienced. Please consider hanging some tires on the corners just to be cautious.

One motor would not be enough. Would hang at least two on there. Think GlenL could do an artists rendering of that?

More great ideas!!!!
Two motors would be a good idea, that way I could keep goin' and make margaritas with the other one!

Tom, I hadn't thought about how people would tie up to the cantina. I have some John Deer tractor tires that would work just fine as protection for my cantina (not for boat protection. they should have their own fenders). They are currently being used as planters in my front yard, so I would have to transplant the flowers before Jill finds out.

I also want it to make it easy for people to tie up their boats to my floating "Heaven" (quote from hoodman). I am gonna use lawn jockeys placed around the cantina. Not sure about the one in the picture below, might just scare away customers.

Jim
