Last time I saw the LOVE IT Again boat it was out back of Marin Machine with a reall funky canopy thing on it. It looked like it sat outside for awhile. That was probably 3 years ago.

Nah......... My quotes make sense (sorta).

Although, I love Yogi......

My first baseball game....My Dad took me to Yankee Stadium..in the 50's..... I was very young and just as we sat down on the first base line..... Yogi got up to bat...(We were obviously a little late for game time)...... Anyway.....bang!////right out of the park....... Man! What a way to be introduced to a game.

My favorite Yogi quote......... and it explains a LOT in my life.

" When you come to the fork in the road....... Take it."

Frank is a good guy, he did a great job on the bottom of my boat a few years ago.

The keel delaminated out on the ocean, and we almost sunk comming into Pt. Pleasant. He basically cut a whole in the bottom and started fresh, even put some extra stringers in for added measure. I was in a rush to get the boat home for the winter and he got it done on time.

While the boat was in the shop, he let me take the hook out of the bottom and gave me a lot of pointers.

I recommend Frank to anyone I know who needs work done.

There were a few single canopy 35's. Motion/Notorious/Little Richard, Loco Motion, Costa Azul were three of them.
