We talked about a bit in previous stories, but today its all about the M -fine Penn Yan. Officially a 1976 Bicentennial Penn Yan. And for the record, the ONLY red white and blue one made. You could buy them in Red, OR Blue, but Matt Fines pop wanted Red white and blue, so guess what? He got Red white and blue.

The cool part is that the family kept it that way. I graduated from high school in 1976 and vividly recall the disgusting shade of blue that made no sense to me considering its not from a natural pallet of the day. Betsy Ross would NOT have chosen that shade.. Yet now, I love it, because it brings back wonderful memories…of zits, and sweating up some windows in a 1968 White beetle in Janet’s drive way.. Ok now I really love that blue. The best part of this boat is that no one cared for it, and yet, we all cared deeply for it.

It was certainly a conversation piece. All during th show folks would come up and ask, talk and shockingly offer to buy it. It aint for sale! And neither is the memory of Janet in her driveway..

At one point Addie asked if needed to take her shoes off to come on board.  We laughed, and said ," what, you don't want to dirty up your shoes" It was that kind of day!

Our hats off to Matt Fine and his Pop for keeping the real fun of Woody Boating alive, even if it is a plastic Pen Yann with stained carpets.
