    A well used 13' Boston Whaler with a 35hp Evinrude. Good times.

    Still have that 14' x 32" wide Lowes hull and that 1958 18 horse sea king! Trailer rusted away years ago! One day I will be brave enough to show pictures of that thing!

    14x32 Starcraft jon. It just got a new transom last year. Now the trailer needs new bunks. And it's too small for the family.

    First boat was a used 12’ aluminum johnboat that was sitting on a barely-useable trailer. Bought a new Mercury 8-horse kicker to put on the back.

    A 19 foot Lone Star fiberglass boat with a 90hp Evinrude. Later upgraded to a 135hp Johnson. Many years later we now have a 29 foot Velocity with 560hp.

    Years ago when my boys were still at home I bought a canoe from a friend of mine, the brand is Dolphin and it is a "princess" model.
    That thing is very stable but heavier than a baby Elephant .
    We decided that "Dolphin Princess" wasn't very manly sounding so we rechristened it the "Viking Warrior"

    Saddest words you'll ever hear
    ... "I have these old guns that were my dads and I have no interest in them"


    Teach a kid to shoot and to carry on the tradition of safe, ethical use of firearms...
