Okay, okay, okay, I know that many of you already know this. But some of us have always been a tad confused about the Gar Wood name. And or, is it one word, or two, and is it a name? Is Gar Wood a real person? Yes. Garfield “Gar” Arthur Wood. Who is Gar Wood, then there are actual Garwood families. As in Frank Garwood and so one, and then there is a Garwood Nj, as in a town.
And yes a Garwood Dr in Cherry Hill NJ. Orlando, and Delaware, Oh and in California, Tennessee, and Texas. Okay there are Garwood Drives all around the US
Not to mention Gar Wood Trash packers and so many other things. And is given credit for the concept of PT Boats. So, Gar was a very cool dude, and possibly the Elon Musk of the era.
So, in conclusion, for all of us. It’s Gar Wood, two words, The boats are Gar Wood’s because he was a rock star, but not to be confused with Gar Wood the Indie Rock guy, or the Garwood Band which is different. And of course his home. Gar that is was an inspiration to many Rock Stars, YES. I will put that link at the bottom of the story, since its more interesting than this story for sure.
