|Pat today. Standing in front of Thayer IV U-22-1460 for the first time in 28 years.|
In order to set up what you are about to read.. I thought it would be a good idea to set the tone and what you are about to read. Pat Curtin for many years was the go to guy in the film business when it came to marine coordinating.. He worked on films such as Water World starring Kevin Costner, Striking Distance starring Bruce Willis, Interview With A vampire starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, and of course On Golden Pond with Katharine Hepburn and Henry Fonda .. Oh and Jane Fonda.. Ohhh Jane Fonda.. He also worked on a slew of others.. But it kinda gets boring.. He was personal friends with Henry Fonda and many of Hollywood’s top execs. Needless to say Pat knows how to play in the big leagues of the film industry. He also ran a very successful classic boat ship in New Hampshire, Judged at many shows including Clayton and is part of a small group of legends in the hobby. He was general manager of Donzi boats and now is happily retired in New Hampshire and Maine.. At the age of 68, he still is full of energy, and has the luxury of not having to be patient with anyone. He speaks in a direct way and his speech pattern is direct and to the point.
When I was putting this all together, along the way over the past few years, it’s became clear that because of Pats pointed way of talking that folks that don’t understand that to be just a way of talking would steer clear.. They would not ask the question, and avoid it and look for the answer in another place. So as you might expect.. Things got distorted.. And that has led to a mistrust of the press. So.. I thought, fine.. I will give you a forum here.. What ever say. I will print. Without interpretation or any other sort of filter.. If you are easily offended or prone to posting anonymous jabs.. You may want to just click here.. if not.. Please enjoy the ride.. So without further ado. Pat…
“The boats are what they are. The wheels tell the story. You now have the boats and most of the details, your answers are all on film.. You can draw your own conclusions. Thanks for the opportunity to tell my story”.
Thank you Pat.. .. Pat has now left the building..
Tune in next week.. We are doing a story on hats..and babes and toilet seats
