First place went to the Bathje family (bubble bath theme), second place was the Wesaw family (pirate theme), third place was the Younkers family (car wash theme), fourth place was the Mattens family (pink flamingo theme), fifth place was the Neubauer family (July 4th theme), sixth place was the Rohrbach family (yankee doodle dandy theme), and in seventh place was the Kiss family (holiday theme). Each of these boats are receiving prizes for their amazing effort in decorating their boats.
