Several years ago there was a gentleman with a steam calliope on board. He played the "I'm Popeye the Sailor Man" song, and all the other boats whistled at the appropriate times. It was great!

What is it?

C-130s are capable of very short take offs and landings. If you've ever been on board one for a combat approach, hang on to your breakfast!

Winter Harbor Marina

My favorite sign for a pool/dock area with Bar facilities:
"No bathing suits after 10 o:clock".

When asked if the time is AM, or PM,
"Depends on who is here".

Scott outboard motor

I'm sure that someone out there would be interested in your motor. If you don't have any luck selling, you could always donate it to the Antique Boat museum in Wolfeboro.
