  Over the years we have taken time off from this so called "work" with the equipment to go boating and fishing. We are close to the Quabbin reservoir and the Connecticut river, both offering great fishing & boating facilities. We have owned and enjoyed many boats over the years and the boys had a ball almost every weekend. The white sail boat is a 1927 Elco 31 ft. motor sailer, we had this boat for 8 years, it was completely restored, a real beauty. She had a "Gray marine" six cylinder engine. We kept her at a marina in Old Saybrook Conn., a bit of a ride every weekend but the kids were raised on her. The other sail boat was what is called a "one of a kind" a custom built boat fashioned after the Chesapeake bay sloops, we had her for four years after we sold the "Elco", we had a slip at the Longmeadow Club on the Conn. river, not too much water for sailing, but no two hour ride to get to it either.

  My only boat at the present is an "Alumacraft 190" 19 footer. It has three engines a 70, 20, & 10, The reason is some lakes have a 10 HP limit, Quabbin has a 20, and the 70 is the main engine of course. I go fishing every chance I get with my Sons, Grandchildren and friends.
