New fellow Woody Boater Jim Gorden sent us a request to help him find his old family boat. Now, what makes this an almost impossible task is that there is no record of a hull number or any quirky details on the boat. Like, it came from the factory with a duck head on it. Sometimes those little details are what can be the tell tale markers that keep a family connection.
BUT, maybe there is hope, there is always hope out there. The good news is that are are photos, and film. And maybe, just maybe someone has such a boat that was delivered around that time from that area? Maybe? Such is the magic of the www.
The fun thing is clearly Jim’s family cared more about the family and people than the boat, so the little boat photos like we take now where not the concern, but maybe if you have a boat like Jim’s, go out to it and place your hands on it , close your eyes and feel it? Do you see water skying, and little smiling children?
Breath in and out slowly. Do you feel it? If so let us know what you feel?
And this very cool footage shot from jims boat of a very rare hardtop!
