4acres Zack is my son and our boat is a 14' Crosby Sled It is a fiberglass boat that is shaped like a Boston Whaler. It was built in 1966 and they were only made for about 2 years and there is not a lot of info about them. It was my fathers boat that was passed down to me.

So Zack is third generation to use the Crosby? Sounds like a well made boat and an heirloom, now. Memories shared on that boat must be priceless. Thanks for sharing. Here's to wishing you and Zack many, many more great memories (and stories).

That's awesome. When I took my son out in my 1962 jonboat, he became the 4th generation in it also. I think that's just very cool, hard to really put into words how a "thing" can have more meaning than a "thing" should. :D

Awesome is RIGHT. I enjoy running my fingers down the edges and lines studying the craftsmanship of old things. So many things bought today is cheap and disposable, often made in China, Taiwan or Mexico. I praise you guys for hanging on to those jewels.
And the best part is hearing the stories of how that scratch, dent, or gouge got there or when grandpa tells an embarrassing story about grandma when they were both young. Priceless!
