Several people have been complimentary about me giving an old boat away so I thought it would be good to start a new thread. As a kid I can’t remember anything more appealing than heading out on a lake in pursuit of a fish. I don’t know if the bigger draw was the boat, Dad letting me operate the motor, or fishing. Dad took my brother and I out frequently and his undivided attention was coveted. Dad’s been gone for about 8 years or so and I will likely always miss him. I just feel a trip to the lake (even when we got skunked) is something every kid should have. What about you and why??????????
