  1. Great story! Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there.

    Before I get a little boating in, I need to take care of some fatherly responsibilities, like bringing home the bacon…

  2. Working on boats with dad is one of life’s pleasures. Happy Father’s day!

  3. I LOVE IT!

    I will be boating to a local restaurant where we will meet up with our daughter Sam for $5 Nachos and Margaritas.

    Here is a pic of Sam helping Dad maintain Grammy’s boat.

  4. Saw the header today and had a good laugh;I bought one of those a few years ago.We knew the boat didn’t leak as the boat was full of water on trailer(the dealer forgot to remove drain plug)Didn’t leak out so shouldn’t leak in.Had one of those v-4 60hp 1965 Evenrudes on it .Boat,motor, and trailer was 400 bucks.everything worked.

    • I got one too – a second MFG. With the original Sun ‘n Fun seats, it’s a 1962 Edinboro is red. This will be a restoration, but it will be a good project.

      The Lyman is going to have to wait a while.

  5. I had the privilege spending some great quality time with my Dad over Memorial Weekend when we road tripped 3000 miles to pick up this beauty. 1962 Dorsett Catalina. We made it a Woodyboater trip out of it even and stopped in Couer d’Alene for a Stan Craft shop tour.
