I was 2 when my Dad started racing his Shadow Cats. I still have the 10' Cougar Cub of his race boat.

Sometimes in the late 80's their was a 10 or 12 meter Fountain Called "Truckin" that I really likes. I was young so not know what the size was, but I think it was a 12 meter. I was crazy about Fountains for all of my youth. Since then I have been bitten by the Cigarette bug and I won't be happy with a boat until I owe one.

Va Voom in clear lake
got my dad started in the 80's and he bought a 36 cigarette
War Party 47 Apache
and Gone Again 32 skater. they were all hometown boats and I worked at the waterfront as a teenager just hoping to get a glimpse of an offshore. I never could figure the people out that didn't even look when these rigs floated by. I'll do almost anything as long as it's out on the water.

For me it was when I was about 9-10yrs old in upstate NY on lake ontario,at my parents lake house.I believe it was a late 80's early 90's Black and Grey Wellcraft Scarab named "Obsession"........Ironically that boat started my Obsession....... anyone ever heard that boat...

I was 5 and we were headed out in our Chris Craft cruiser for my first time ever on Grand Lake. On the way out of the cove we passed a big Scarab on a lift called "Think Rich". Coolest thing I'd ever seen.

LOTO when I was 13 or 14. Family vacation, and I was a complete nut for standup jet skis (still am!). We had rented a 550SX and I was out playing when an all red Fountain ICBM cruised in to get some gas. I was instantly in love. Bought my all-red Fountain at LOTO 16 years later!
