As a sleek 25-foot boat dropped anchor at Montrose Harbor, the August sun slipped behind the skyline, its languid descent signaling happy hour. On one section of the dock, members of the Freedom Boat Club gathered over cocktails to unwind from the workday. Local singer-songwriter Bill Grady strummed an acoustic guitar and Buck, an old sea dog, made the rounds for head scratches and belly rubs aboard the club's newest amenity: a floating party dock called Captain’s Quarters.
