“Men Were Not Supposed To Be In Plastic Boats” A 2015 Voyage On The Cherokee


“Men were not meant to be in plastic boats.” -Captain Patrick

It’s true: wooden boats have a “special look, feel and smell that attracts people to them,” says our Captain. And the Cherokee, at 91 years old, is no exception.

In her earlier years, the Cherokee was a commuter craft, transporting “well-to-do’s” from Connecticut to the Financial District in Manhattan. Now, decades later, it’s been refurbished to take Madisonians and out-of-towners alike on private 90-minute charters and public cruises.

“I’ve been boating since I was 8 years old,” says Captain Patrick. “And I’m happy the Cherokee was chosen for The Edgewater to provide a unique experience on Lake Mendota.”

 They’re perfect for a reunion with college friends, or a small rehearsal dinner pre-party. Please note this post is from 2015, in 2016 our boating partners are Skipper Bud’s of Madison – click here for more information.
