    You've done a beautiful job on the boat! Where will you be using it?
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    We had one of those! We started out with a classic Johnson 25 hp. Here I am learning about boats in about 1964.

    And later we upgraded to a 40 hp Merc (when they had orange trim) for better water skiing. This is about 1970.

    But the repeated deep-water starts for skiing, and 40 hp, stressed the transom, and Dad learned his first lesson in fiberglass reinforcement.
