Breathless boat out of service for unforseen maintenance

Maybe they are waiting on a sponsorship deal with Hacker Craft. :greedy: One should be docked at Yacht and Beach, Boardwalk, and GF. Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay lake would open up an opportunity to bring her up to speed. http://www.hackerboat.com/
Several years later... and unfortunately we're still waiting on that sponsorship ;). I had the opportunity to ride Breathless II back in 2009 and snapped several photos. I posted a couple of them to Pinterest but have several more of the Hacker Craft if anyone is interested. Our CM certainly jumped on the throttle on the lake just outside of Disney's HS. Nothing like seeing the Tower of Terror in the background (photo below). My two passions are Disney and wood boats, so this was a perfect mix for me. One can only hope they bring back a "classic" wood boat to the Yacht Club, but I'm guessing these days are long gone.

Things were certainly different back when Eisner was trying to appeal to his East Coast friends by proving WDW could be a classy destination. Yet the same guy who emphasized celebrity architects, superstar headliners for evening entertainment, and the idea of enjoying WDW without kids later green lighted the SSE wand, the BAH at the Studios, and replacing all those A-list entertainers with Disney Channel “stars.”

This is why it’s hard to be a Disney fan. The company has been a celebration of contradictions since the mid-1990s. ;):D
