    Dads boat

    Well first off, I hope these pics are visible. I'm going to try 2 pics the same. This was my father's boat back around the early 60s. I'm pretty sure the windscreen came off my uncles Harley.

    I really don't know much about the boat. I was around 14 maybe 15 at the time. He never raced it, but it was the fastest boat on the Delaware river in our area. It had a car engine in it at some time before he got it. It was a 40hp Evenrude on the back, big for the 60s.I can't remember what ever happened to it.

    Are both pics visible????

    Bob, on my desktop the first picture is not showing, but clicking on the small icon that's there brings you to Imageshack and you can see it there. The second picture displays fine!

    I see both no problem but have never had a problem with any of your pics.
    That looks like a National Cycle screen.

    That is a cool looking speedboat, Sidecar, but boats scare the hell out of me. Living in Florida, I've been on too many boats with drunken captains, and lost, incompetent sailors, so unless the boat only has oars, I'll stay on land

    Oh yeah, I don't even want to talk about the wild monkeys on the St. Johns river near Silver Springs. That was creepy. . . Glad I was drunk at the time.
