If you have been following this week with the entire spontaneous Daisy Chain story, today we reveal the boat and “trip 1, done by long time fellow Woody Boater T Parsons. We kept the boat a secret because we wanted to surprise our son Hank, Berlin Bureau, SURPRISE!
The boat is YIP YAP, a long time love of the Smith Family and my son Hank’s first boat. He went on the trip to Buffalo to get her with us, and learned to drive and blow up an old outboard on it. She was the poster child of the Whirlwind stories here, and even had Osama Bin Ladan at the helm.
Oh Yip Yap has a history here. There is deep love here. And after all this time, headed back home.
We put a new Nissan Engine on her back in 2004? and she is still making people happy for sure. This is one MUCHO LOVED BOAT for sure. And now on her way to Ohio. And then Maryland. This is insane, but somehow the universe is by our side.
