Including one huge, inexpensive, underpowered runabout:
"W117 Thompson, 1962, 163' runabout. Mahogany top deck, vinyl lined interior sides. Johnson OB, 100hp, w/trailer. Very good condition. $2,900."
Maybe they meant sixty-three feet.
Probably 16'3" which may have been the actual measurement of the 17' model.
"And look at Elias Wonder. Yeah, take a gander at that buzzard. Forty years ago he was happy, generous, charitable, tall, dark and handsome. Then he took up the fly rod. Now consider him. Uglier than fresh road kill. Evil-eyed, cantankerous, sullen, mean. An anti-social misfit that causes a groundswell of spleen wherever he goes."
