That was good.

My dad's first sailboat was a sneakbox. We're talking 1930's. He would tell me stories of spending his summer with his grandmother in Ocean gate.

When he saved a little money, he moved up to a snipe.

When I was a kid, he had a lightning which we used to sail a lot. That was a 2 man boat.

Later in life, he rescued an old snipe that was buried in the sand and re-built it over a 3 year period. He wanted a boat that he could sail alone.

I miss my dad.
