People can be a champion in many ways, for my dad it was being the best at boat racing in the 1950’s through the 1960’s racing outboard hydroplanes and runabout hulls. I grabbed photos of these records he set way back when for my own information too. He knows where in Michigan his old boat is.
I’ve not been able to convince him as yet that he really needs to make an offer to the man (one of his biggest competitors then) to purchase the boat back. He doesn’t really want the boat but knows well that I would just love to have this boat back in my life, it’s a big piece of my life! How sentimental, right?
