Hey Mike Stossel,

Awesome to see you in the thread of comments. We've always looked forward to the day when this was made FREE to the public. Your dad's story, and your stories are now available to everyone. That makes me a happy camper.

Thanks for your help, your input and thanks to your family, especially Diane, for helping me make the connections to all who knew and loved Bob Stossel. I will always cherish our time in Mims, FL.

Who knew that when we were hanging out at Bob's shop back in the late '70s that we could make this video happen.

BRAVOOOOO! Happy New Year!

Lariat,

You're right! The old timers tell the best stories and I am with you on the fact that we could listen to them all day.
Thank you for watching the video and please share this FREE download with your fellow airboaters that enjoy a good story.

Jamie,

Your heartfelt comments really capture the true meaning of why we produced this video. It's so gratifying to hear people relate this story to their own stories of growing up in similar circumstances. It's especially nice when folks like you tell us that the documentary reminds you of good times with your own relatives... families that had the same values of putting in an honest day's work creating things that would last because they were built with sweat, good materials and integrity.

So happy you enjoyed the Bob Stossel Documentary. Please share it with your friends and family.

Happy New Year!

~Vicki Gordon Dameron

Happy Easter To All!

Thanks to everyone for all of your incredible comments and many downloads!

If you have some extra time during the holidays check out the Bob Stossel Documentary with someone you love... especially with your children and grandchildren. It's a great way to pay it forward and let them learn about a person who was a hero in the airboat world. Remember... it's FREE. FREE is good.

As always, enjoy the ride. Be safe.

This video and others like it show what is best about America. Its a thousand stories like this that have made America Great. The work ethic and the family orientation put this nation on top. We have departed from this as a nation and if we don't want to lose it we as a nation must return to these values and ways. My opinion only of course but it does seem right to me.

Thanks for your comments Whitebear! Hard working families are the backbone of our country. It's hard work hand crafting airboats from the ground up and the family is still doing it today! Glad you enjoyed the Bob Stossel journey via online video.

Kudos to you both!

Thanks for the info Travis and Rick. None of us, including Bob Stossel's sons, knew this monument existed. Kudos to Southern Airboat Rick and Travis for letting us know this monument resides in Bob Stossel's fave place... Lake Park Marsh, or as it is known now as Grasssy Water's Preserve. Thanks for taking care of the place we all treasure Travis. This is why this site is so important.
Thank you.
