I am resident of Traverse City and have been since 1981. The Grand Traverse Bay is popular to everyone who visits and a tranquil, main attraction. The Boardman River is lined with a boardwalk where you can tie down a vessel and walk to stores and eateries Downtown, which two friends and myself did on Saturday the 25th of June, 2011. After dining we proceeded down the Boardman and began to enjoy the music on the Holiday Inn deck from the water. The river current swept us behind the catamaran rental where we were demoralized, ridiculed and threatened with a beating by the “CAPTAIN” . If we agreed, he was willing to meet us on Holiday Inn dock where the Cruise line business resides. We are much too mature for this and did move away from their territory and were still taunted by the “CAPTAIN“. Calling us names like a grade school child would. We were then rammed by the twin pontoon sailboat as they left their den, breaking our navigational lights and chipping the gel coat on the port side of my unprotected and anchored cuddy. Upon ramming my boat a hired crew hand whipped a beer bottle on my deck! You see I have a 25ft Cuddy which is very much smaller that this Cat that cruises, therefore no match. I am peaceful and disagree with acts of violence. I do not want to rate this business, it is not an acceptable contribution to Northern Michigan where people are friendly and welcome each other with open arms. We do not taunt, threaten, or call names or ram other boats. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS LOWGRADE ATTRACTION.
