    Default Ernie Gannís boat

    Mention was made in the boísun thread of Ernie Gannís boat. This is the boat I remember. It was in the opening day parade on the Lk Wa Ship Canal in 1970. I donít honestly know if Ernie was on board, but Emmett Watson was waving to folks. Emmett was interviewed on the radio that evening because he was throwing copies of the Post Intelligencer to the crowd, and most fell in the water.

    One of my favorite boats. Jay Benford design that would "drink six, feed four, and sleep two"

    There is a lot of funky coolness going on here. Not usually much of a MV kind of person but this could convert me.

    If you would have a good boat, be a good guy when you build her - honest, careful, patient, strong.
