The Moritz family bought the Southport marina from Kevin Turnbow last week. This includes the convenience store, The Pier restaurant and bar, fueling stations and boat slips.

Now the Moritz family owns 3 marinas (Marina bay and also Rickers).

I’m not really sure how I feel about this as it seems like they kinda have a monopoly in that area of the Missouri River, but we will see what happens this summer as I am on the river more now that I am once again a boat owner.

Which brings me to my next news item. I bought a boat!

Well nothing really fancy, in fact it is over 30 years old, but it floats and runs. That’s all I need for a little relaxation out on the river this summer. Plus it is always a good thing when you can pay cash for a depreciating “toy”.
