In the fall the swimming pool business has us out closing/winterizing the pools in our area, which encompasses
about 70 miles all around us. It was on a day of closing pools that we ran across this little beauty.
We had just finished a pool and were traveling around the lake to the next pool to winterize. There she was, sitting
along the outer edge of a marina lot filled with boats waiting to be winterized and shrink wrapped.
Some one let out a shout, "There's a wooden boat over there. Looks like a Lyman or a Thompson." Whoa
horses! Too late. We had to go down a ways and turn around. We had our winterizing trailer behind the truck so we
had to choose an opportune place to make our turn-around.
