I have inherited a Bartender from my father and I want to learn more about it. It's 19".Is George still around? My father was obssessed with this boat and I think I am starting to become a bit obssessed myself! Who can I go to on the West coast for info on how to care for her?

Thanks for the quick reply! I think my dad worked for George when he was a kid racing boats so you can understand how how much it means to me to learn as much as I can. My mother didn't allow us to dicuss the boat when he was alive but now I'm able to share my dad's interests. You guys are great,
Thanks.

Geeez, your mother wouldn't let you discuss the boat? My mother would have been happy if I dragged my mind up from the gutter and talked about boats, LOL.

Thanks for the tip. I looked at the index but I'm not sure what it is I'm looking for in #76?

Mel, in issue #76 the article is on page 101
The title is "A Seaworty Double-Ended Powerboat"---written bt Sam Devlon.

In the WB index punch in the word "bartender" an it will give you all that has been written about this boat in WB mag http://media5.hypernet.com/~dick/ubb/smile.gif
