She may sell the house and cash out all the money but I'm pretty sure she'd tell me in her note that she left me the boats just to show she isn't entirely without feelings for me.

At least yours would leave a note... :)

Sorry JR... get back to work and show us something to get us back on track. ;)

Well.... all things considered, I'm not too sure you'll still have your boats ;-)

I hadn't appreciated how different the colors cars and boats came in during that era. I showed a picture of a Thunderbird built the same year as the Jet Star ('58) and painted the same color to my first wife. Turquoise cars were not uncommon in the fifties. I suggested that the TBird would look good matched with the Jet Star. She did not share my enthusiasm.


Brunswickian, I think there was a typo in your message. Corrected in red above.

Beautiful boat you have. I'm not a fan of any of the 3 colors offered on the Jetstreaks. I'm normally all in on originality but not this time. At least on the paint color.
