“The Black Pearl” – Mark & Karen

Mark and I were introduced to boating by our friends, after taking numerous trips with them on their boat. Soon after enjoying a trip with them down the Hudson to New York City I declared to my husband, “Honey… I want a boat!” Well, he made my dreams come true and purchased our first boat, The Black Pearl, a 26′ Crownline cabin cruiser in July 2011.
As new boat owners, we had many questions. The Duda family has made the process of new boat ownership smooth and simple. They have been there to answer any questions a new boat owner would have, and helped us adjust through all the growing pains of new boat ownership.
We call B dock our home, and our dock mates are our extended family. Always ready to lend a hand, answer a question, enjoy a laugh and share some beer. We are so lucky to have such great friends, thanks guys!
Mark and I spend most of our time at Fourth of July Beach, but also enjoy many other parts of the river. We are looking forward to many more fun times, cookouts, horse shoes, pitch games that run into the wee hours, Noodler committee meetings in the lagoon, and just getting away from it all.
We’ll see you on the river!
