This magic 1970, 1700′ Larson Tri Hull time capsule is in from our pals at Freedom Boat Service and man oh man, ya gotta love a time capsule. Like a 50 hr boat. Who buys a boat and puts on 50 hrs on it and owns it this long? How does that even happen?
Bob – Honey I am going to buy a boat just like the one in the Larson Brochure.
Darla – WHAT? We don’t need another Boat, dammit Bob!
Bob – But Honey I want to go fishing, and you can sit up front!
Darla – FINE, go, go get that boat, BTW its strange looking! And I don’t look like that model on the bow.
Two hrs later.
Bob – Honey I’m home! I got the boat!
Darla – FINE…………………..Pin drop sound…….
Bob -You want to go out?
Darla – ……………NO!
Bob – Come on!
Darla– NO! NO! I told you not to get that dam thing.
Bob – But, you said fine!
Darla – Fine!, I am going shopping for stuff. Lots of stuff.
One Week later, Darla has stuff, lots of stuff as promised. The boat is in the back shed and never to be seen again. The marriage is good now and the “Boat” has just been stored in a dark place where many other things are hidden, Darla’s drinking problem, Bob’s weekend in Vegas, the time Darla told Bobs Mother she was a Butinsky. And that time Bob, drank to much and looked at Lois down in the street a little to long. All that is in that shed, and now you have the chance to benefit from all of Bob & Darla’s buried issues. Woohooo!
Matt – Suzy, I am going to buy a boat.
Suzy – Fine!
And so the circle of life continues.
And thanks again to Dane, for some more brochure Sharks!
And if that’s not enough, thanks to Dane and the Lee Wangstad collection you can even see how the Shark was previewed in 1969. Wow, I love our team.
