Throughout the past 31 days, my friend—I think it’s safe to call him that after a few years of working closely together—Pete Boden has covered a lot of miles traveling from races to poker runs to fun runs and more, and has a lot of photographs stored on his computer to prove it. Between Sarasota, Fla., Nashville, Tenn., and Boyne City, Mich., Boden and his RV have been to several of the most unique waterways in the country in July, and he’s had a ton of fun meeting new people and taking pictures of their amazing boats.

Thanks to Boden’s efforts, I thought it would be cool to go back through his images and pull out my favorites from five different events he covered last month. Going in the opposite direction of my fellow columnist Matt Trulio’s “Peering Into August” story from yesterday, I decided to reflect on the last month—rather than look ahead—and highlight the work of speedonthewater.com’s chief photographer.
After traveling to the Tickfaw 200 Poker Run in Louisiana in May as well events in Missouri, Wisconsin and Jacksonville, Fla., in June, Boden started close to home in Sarasota, Fla., on the first day of July for the annual Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix.
