As we hit our third year of ownership of WECATCHEM, our favorite boat of all time, we have been searching for more about her history. The seller knew some, but not a lot, and considering it had been in that one family since 1948 is a tad sad, but I get it. It was just the boat. Or maybe its just that New England style of privacy. We have been told that all the family photos of the boat were thrown away. yes, I wanted to throw up. Those photos are gold in my book. And a book on the boat is what I was hoping to design.
So hopefully one day they may find a lost shoe box of photos. Fingers crossed. So I am now reaching out to folks on the lake that may know the boat. It spent its entire life there. And I know she was at the boat shows, and lots of work..well done BTW there. We have reached out to the shop that had done some of the work, and no one responds to emails, or answers the phone? All very strange. We also called emailed Irwin Marine who sold the boat new. Nuth’n.
Hell we found the secret On Golden Pond boats and this one we know where it was.. AHHHHHHH. So anyone got anything? We would love to hear from you. AND NO ALL FUTURE SMARTASSES, there were not THREE WECATCHEMs.. One for the film, one for the crash scene. I guess I shouldn’t be so greedy, I do have some original footage, and some history, and that is more than most have. but, it never hurts to ask around. Ya never know.
Thanks for humoring me, there must be someone that has some fun old photos on the lake. Maybe I am being too greedy. After all we do have some amazing color footage. BTW, we have tried many times, and failed to get a higher resolution of the film to see more details. Dead end.
