My dad got a Sea King tri hull used in 1972 went boating every weekend during the summer! Taught me about boats when I was a we-one. I don't have to search for it cause he still drives it every weekend during the summer!
BH will you upgrade with some Rad graphics and cassette player
Very nice gift. Jo

My Grandmother had an old 50's Chris Craft cruiser. It was 50 foot long and made out of teak and mahogany. Beautiful boat. Too bad its now on the bottom of the river. Two owners after her had it go down on him. What a shame.

I still have the first boat I ever bought. 14' aluminum with a 9.9 merc. Bought it when I was 16. Been sitting upside down on the trailer since I was about 20 though. I also still have the first power boat I ever drove. 1972 Glastron 140GT with a Merc. 50 on it. I use it all the time for fishing and towing the neice and nephew on the tube. Runs like a watch. It's under cover and it's raining or I'd run out and take a picture.
