Ya, know, I can’t make this stuff up. No one would believe that one family could experience so many breakdowns, and yet see the humor in it all. Yes, we are talking about Paul and Karen Harrison.
You may recall the running out of fuel on Lake Tahoe?
or Breaking. drive shaft in a brand new GMC truck?
or a blown transmission in St Louis,
or a blown trailer tire in Montana,
or being stuck in a snow drift in Montana,
or the Sea Bird over heat at last years Lake Dora Show,
or the transmission issue on the Continental on Lake Dora,
or the sinking of Satin Doll. Do I really need to go on?
Okay I will, just this past Sunday, the reliable Sea Skiff with a BRAND NEW crate motor, well. DIED! Right at the Dora canal. We have pictures-ish
Okay, okay we have no photos. mmm wonder why? So we hirred famed artist Pierre Brassau to do some sketches of the indecent. Hey, its winter, A mans gotta do what a mans gotta do to get the stories out.
And this is where it get’s even worse. UGH. I am embarrassed for the entire culture of classic boats.
So you want to meet the artist? Sure. Meet Pierre Brassau. Yup.. Brother of Zip! Zip and Pierre have spent many smoky nights in the bars of Paris, drawing dancers and break downs on Lake Dora! Think I am kidding. He is a real artist. Here is a short film on him.
