Fellow Woody Boater Bob Menzel sent this in yesterday.
“Here is one from around 1954 or so. Me on right with my Dad driving on Conneaut Lake, PA. The boat is (I think) a 15 foot 1953 Chris Craft plywood kit boat built by Press Reel in Pittsburgh. 15HP Johnson. And yes, my lil sister Diane still has all her fingers…”
This week we are going to feature some of your oldies, no not your elvis collection.. We want to feature old pictures of you and your family. Yesterday Texx featured a fun old family snap shot and it triggered a fun response. So we decided to make it a fun feature on Woody Boater, so go up into the attic, and start digging. You will need to scan any print images. Don’t worry about the edges or bad color or scratches, we will clean them up for you. You can post your images starting monday and join in the fun.
I found these a couple years ago in a slide box. Yup, thats yours truly at the helm of a early 70’s 40 ft River Queen. Twin 440 super bee engines. What a two week adventure.
