Preview: The Influence of My Father

I’ll have to go back to my beginnings and say my father indirectly influenced me the most. He is the one who introduced me to sailing and had a cellar full of tools that I could use, mostly from rebuilding a Stout Fella sloop.

And he had a two-car garage, which, by the time I was 14, I had taken over so completely that my parents were unable to park a car in it again until I left fr military service. I guess Dad figured it was a small price to pay to keep me out of trouble.

    All of us who are so fortunate to have had fathers who loved boats and had a reverence for wood, owing to websites like this one, can continue to enjoy what our fathers passed along to us. I continue to see the Herreshoff boats my father so lovingly found derelict and restored. A joy!
