My father's boat, "Girl Shy," circa 1946. He was 20 years old and that's him up on the bow.

Three boats i found on my property I bought in Texas. I know one is a Glastron I don't know what the others are. My brother says they are salvageable. I think he is nuts.

The Super G was Webmaster Kelly Wood's until I got it sometime around 2002. I sold it about 4 years ago. Brian Franchinni owns it now if I'm not mistaken.

Evidently I have. I didn't even remember who had it now as it's been a few years and A lot has gone on since then. As I told the guy I sold it to (who I also can't think of his name right now) I dont know if I have any paperwork for this Super G andI am not sure I ever got any from Kelly. Also, as I said earlier with that being the case, the boat is still in Kelly's name and an email or private messege to him should be able to get the paperwork issue resolved. Shoot him a PM (username webmaster) about it and I'll do the same so he'll know we are on the same page.

I love threads like this. We need to keep this going off and on from now it. See how many pics we can throw up here for everyone to see, especially the newcomers. Maybe even make this thread a "sticky" to hold it at the top so it will always be available. Anyway, here's some more pics.. Some are boats I have owned, still own, or wish I owned.

My Fury just hanging around...


A sad day... '64 Dorsett Catalina

Dick Davis at 60 mph

Jeff Bowman at 57 mph..


The coolest Powercat photo ever..


My old '59 Redfish...

A cool T-bird concept....


A slightly silly rendering...

An awesome set of fins.... on a "not for sale" boat... :(

And a wicked cool nose on it too...

Great idea, Doug. Nothing like eye candy to spark interest. And maybe a pic "sticky" in the engine sections also.jim

Here are my Thunderhawks. The 1957 Red & White was fully restored back in 1991 (was it really over 20 years ago? Whew, time is certainly flying!) and the 1959 Black & White is totally original. I've since repowered the '57 with a 1958 Johnson Super Sea Horse 35.

A rare Thompson factory ski boat...



"Style Craft", the only one I've ever seen...



Can these be just boat related? If so....

A rare early 1900's Morse solid brass water cannon...



Not sure who made it or what year, but I remember it was supposed to be an all aluminum hull...

Wow, this is my favorite go-fast boat, a 19ft VIP Kona from 1985, it's a glassic to me in it's lines. I named her "Cry Baby" because your eyes water when she's going fast. Plus the 200 hp Merc kinda sounds like a crying baby... "waaaahhhhh, waaaahhhhh"...
