When I was ten years old I came home from school
on Friday afternoon and there was a 16' wood runabout Highhat made in Sanford, Florida
... 1st boat
for the family
, and I know my Dad wanted one all his life since he was an officer in the US Navy
.... Saturday afternoon we were on board our 1st cruze at about 20knots with our BIG 35HP Johnson outboard
, my mother sitting in the back with a beer
and sez "we're in HIGH COTTON now!".......... that's the name of my first (and current) 40' boat.... here's to you, MOM!
Naming a boat is very special....... make it mean something in your life !!!!
S/V High Cotton
"Had I known I would live this long, I would have taken better care of myself !!!
