Best Dad ever! From Ken Furrer – Taken around 1960 Mom Dad and ME!
For all you Dads out there, I am sure today you are being asked what you would like to do. Don’t tell them the truth. No one wants you too go out in the garage, drink beer listen to load music and work on your boat. BTW, just like your Dad did. But he didn’t. Chances are he took you all out on the boat, went fishing, and you and him had a great time. Mom was home making a special dinner, and the summer day just went on and on until a large slice of pie finished it off.
He is someones Dad now – Lake Hopatcng
Of course mom was empty inside, being the family slave, and by this point was a closet alcoholic. Cheating on dad with the neighbor Tony, who was a car salesman. Tony’s wife Bitsy was the town Hotty, and she thought Tony walked on water. Oh, wait, water. Ya, we are talking boats, dam Mom and Tony. Ya know come to think about it, my younger brother looks like Tony . mmm that’s odd. So Fathers Day, that clueless idiot. That’s what ya get for wanting to spend all your time in the garage , drinking beer and working on your boat. Yikes that got a bit dark fast. How about some happy dad shots from our past?

From Biggest Balls Winner David Konick – This is my Dad on our 19 foot 1955 Cruis-Along Buccaneer. This picture taken at Lynch’s Marina on Pilottown Road in Lewes in the Summer of 1955 or 1956. We got this boat after our outboard turned over in the Lewes & Rehoboth (Delaware ) canal in the summer of 1954, and I almost drowned when I was a year and a half old. My mother told him if he was going to take us kids out any more, he better get a boat that wouldn’t turn over, so he got the CruisAlong. I am pretty sure it had an 85 HP Graymarine engine. It was built by M.M. Davis & Sons over in Solomons MD. My memories of this boat are many. When it got rough, my father put my up under the front deck and I laid on the anchor rope. I remember many a day watching sheets of spray flying over the canvas top and into the back of the boat and the sound of the waves crunching on those lapstrake planks. We kept the boat until 1958, when we got a larger, twin-screw 30 foot Egg Harbor.

DAD BOAT LOAD 1948
My father on the left durring WW2 and my mom Left. Aunt far right
Also from Bob Kays – my Grandfather in his 1956? Fleetcraft. Mahogany decks and pink or coral fiberglass hull. Hi did not want to deal with a wood bottom so he thought he would try this new fiberglass. I don’t remember the boat, though we do have a photo of me in the boat. I wonder if anyone in Woody Boaterville knows of a model of this boat still out there.
It’s not just women who were made to look dumb.. Here is another classic, like on fathers day men all sit around and “talk” not that there is anything wrong with that?
