Oh well...life ain't that bad in the back seat either lol.

I think Ken (the original SA Olf Art) would've enjoyed seeing Tristan in the driver's seat...RIP Olf Art.

Thanks for mentioning Olf Art Rick. I think of him often. I am certain he would be proud to see that Tristan is running that boat.

Rest in Peace Ken Johnson.

Good post Rick!
I wish I knew the feeling of some kind of continuance, especially even starting or running a boat proper, let alone being in the back seat and not in the brush on it's side.
I won't take this post down memory lane to those that have passed, but more of promoting those to come!

He'll cut your throat, baby, stick you in the back, drive off in your Cadillac.
He's more trouble than you think, he'll kill your sugar, leave you in the drink.
