Erics U22 when he found it In storage tucked away for over 10 years in Queensbury NY
Thanks to fellow Woody Boater and neighbor Eric Zelman for sharring with us his expeience with Gary Lowell down in North Carolina. We met Gary at Smith Mountain Lake last year and he is a peach of a guy. Although, he is not in Georgia, so maybe he is a BBQ of a guy?
