THIS BOAT HAS A STORY. Our whole decrepit fleet does. We drove 80 miles to get this one from an old man who told us about the time he was four & took off alone down the river (his big brother had to come rescue him). // It was hard for him to part with it, it’s hull holds a lifetime of memories for his family. It was his dad’s, who bought it new in an era when life was simpler- it’s annual polishing was a tradition // In the end, the owner got some comfort knowing that it was going to a good home, where kids young & old would get to enjoy it again. // next time you’re boarding our dinged up old boats & canoes, remember that they’re kinda like the boat equivalent of rescue dogs, happy to be back in service to make more memories. #RescueTheOldOnes// photo: @bradandjen
