On Saturday, Woody Gal, Larry’s Cousin, Jimmy and our new pal Dan went up to Lake Hopatcong and Katz’s Marina despite a winter dusting to officially talk with Larry and make some choices for Pumpkin. Jimmy, Woody Gal and I sat down at the table in the showroom surrounded by the two On Golden Pond Boats and had a chat with Larry.
As Woody Gal said, “right now Larry is having a blast watching all this sillyness” Larry the feelings mutual. So we started asking questions about carpet samples, vinyl colors and other design details. Should it be Orange, have that two tone thing on the sides? Paint ideas, engine etc… It’s shocking, Larry agrees with all of us on all subjects.. So here goes, a break down of what the New Pumpkin will have. Thanks Larry.
