By the time I was old enough to do such things, my Uncle (my grandfather's only son) had unfortunately neglected the boat to the point it rotted away. Neither of my grandfather's daughters or sons-in-law were interested in the boat at all.
Something that to this day saddens me greatly. I caught my first fish on that boat (a five pound tautog at that) so the boat meant a lot to me. All the adults around me told me not to fuss about it.
