Before he could swim Brant’s family enjoyed boating on the Mississippi river every weekend. Lake of the Ozarks was our summer vacation spot, were I learned to ski and grew a passion for spending countless hours on the water boating. The summer of 1993 lead me back to Lake of the Ozarks completing an Internship at Lodge of the Four Seasons. Just a few years later Brant and his wife Kelly purchased a second home at the lake. For over 25 years our family enjoyed various boats from PWC’s, Ski Boats, Cruiser’s, and Performance boats and currently the owner of his favorite, a Center Console.
