The Good Ship Four O'Clock


The good ship Four O'Clock is our part-time summer home. Her name comes from history on both sides of the family. When I was growing up, we had a wall clock in the kitchen that, nearly as early as I can remember, didn't work. It was left reading 4:00. Whenever anyone asked what time it was, it was always Four O'Clock. On my wife's side of the famly, happy hour started early -- need I say more.

70' Slip in Charlevoix MI For Sale


Since we're considering selling the good ship Four O'Clock, we may not need the slip we have at Northwest Marine Yacht Club on Lake Charlevoix. It's a great place, but we don't use the pool that much anymore. The marina is on the West shore of Lake Charlevoix just South of the Pine River entrance to Round Lake and downtown. Asking $79K. Call 231-487-0692 if you're interested or see

Yes, the lake level is down quite a bit as we approach the 2013 boating season. Fortunately, Slip 161 is deep, as is the entrance channel into the slip. If you're having problems finding a slip deep enough for your larger boat, you might want to look at this slip.
