First, I hope my Grandfather looked back at his life like that, because that's how I saw it.
Second, right now I'm glad I work from home in an office by myself.
Don't take life too seriously.....No one gets out alive!!!
Brought back allot of memories.
Growing up in Point Pleasant, NJ
Crabbing at the dock with my Granddad
Ice skating across Barnegat Bay
Chatting with my Dad about boating as a young boy
Going to the first Point Pleasant offshore race, I was about 12
Loosing my Granddad
Loosing my Dad
Studying hard in PP schools, dreaming about someday buying a boat, dreaming about

WOW, that hit me in the heart!
Great video! I like the last line "Life's better with a boat".
Kind of made me think back to when I started boating. It's been an adventure. Scary at times and a real learning experience. I can't imagine what I'd be like if I never had a boat.
AppSysCons, I too grew up on Barnegate Bay and around the Toms River, Sea Side, Point Pleasant areas. Seems like it may have been close to the same time period as you (1966-1987). Graduated Toms River North HS in '74, was married the same year 1977, our daughter was born 1980. First offshore race I saw the the Hennesy Grand Prix in the early 1970's. Remember walking around the Kings Grant Inn looking at all the boats. Last race I saw was in 1985(?) at the Lobster Shanty in Point Pleasant.
(What you see, is what you get!)
"Live every day to it's fullest for you give a day of your life to it."
Wow. That's powerful.
Nothing like fond memories of hangin' out with dad and grampa.
All choked up.
Man that hit home...I grew up boating with my dad on Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia....his funeral was a week ago Saturday....thanks for sharing
