My first was a 8' waterlogged card table, one of those home made, plywood, flat bottom, round nose with a small cockpit you kneeled in. It would barely float. But it had a stick and a wheel with a 10hp Keikafer. It would go about 20 if I could get it running. I payed $50.00 for it when I was 14. Man, it was the chit.
