Novel as it was, the idea of a hot pizza lunch on the water during a 90-plus-degree Tennessee day didn’t appeal to anyone on our boat during last Saturday’s Old Hickory Fun Run, so we called a collective audible and made a beeline for The Rudder restaurant, a waterside joint at Anchor High Marina in Hendersonville. On board Vinnie Foglia’s M3900 Mystic center console were Scott Sjogren of Shogren Performance Marine, Foglia and several guests including Kate McRae, a young Nashville-based singer/songwriter.

Lunch off the water turned out to be a perfect call, but it lasted longer than expected.
