I created Bogart the Boat Salesman as part of my Canadian Trades/Professions Character Challenge. Boat salesmen are a very important profession in Canada, especially with all the lakes Canada has.
Bogart is a very important character in Storyland because to him, safety comes first. Boating can be dangerous and Bogart has very strict rules when it comes to anyone taking a boat out into the water from his marina. Everyone must wear a life jacket and alcohol consumption or drug use is strictly forbidden. He wants everyone to enjoy themselves, safely.
My goal for this character is to show that you can still have fun and enjoy yourself, even when playing safe.
