Like Mike Tracy and his crew in his Nordic Boats 29 Deck Boat, many Monster Bash Poker Run attendees take holiday photos in front of the London Bridge in Lake Havasu City, Ariz. Photo courtesy Mike Tracy
While I understand not everyone who reads this is celebrating Christmas on Friday, surely everyone is familiar with the Clement Clarke Moore poem A Visit from St. Nicholas—aka ’Twas the Night Before Christmas—so here’s my boating rendition of the classic tale, which was published for the first time on December 23, 1823 by a New York newspaper, the Sentinel.
’Twas the night before Christmas, and all across the lake,
Not a whitecap was forming, nor was a wake.
The engines were silent and ready to purr,
In hopes that St. Powerboat soon would be heard.
