Old Gar Wood factory photos
As many of you have read over the years, my job has me working long hours sometimes and all over the planet. But when its the holiday time, we shut the office down for two weeks. Everyone takes a break and gets some well deserved rest. And today, is that day we all feared would come at the start, and happy now that its here. I love what I do, and the folks at our shop love it as well. I hope. So I thought it would be cool to feature some of the working men and women that made our passion fun. Here is to all the boat builders, designers and community that started the world of power boating.
