Matt – Just a note to you and the staff. We all have that special someone or group of people in our lives who is specifically responsible for introducing us to the hobby. You certainly remember the photo of me sitting behind the wheel of the Resorter at 6 years old. The person who took that picture was none other than …………
At 30 years old he decided to buy a wood runabout! He had a few smaller outboards and one rowboat prior but the Century was bought and stored at the Lindsey Park Yacht Club in Davenport, Iowa.
It was also my first introduction to the classic wood boating scene! I am forever grateful to my father for this introduction and if I have contributed even the slightest amount to the hobby in the past or will in the future it is because of my Dad.
Thanks Dad, the family all enjoyed your Resorter Easter Sunday. Even though you could not be in the boat we loved seeing you watch us from the living room. We will NEVER sell the Century, EVER! It is an Ales heirloom forever.
