  • A proud brother

    Note: Admin condensed this story for the front page...

    Wanted to share a little story about my little brother and a boat.

    My brothers and I grew up in a bbc powered flatty so when we grew up surprise we didn't own sail boats. Now my youngest brother loved boating and having a loud kick ass boat. So when he had saved enough he got an old basket case flat bottom. He also got some new not so good friends.

    He stopped working on the boat and started down the path that's almost impossible to return from. My family and I were heart broken. See my little bro never had a lot of selfs steamed and wasn't as big as his brothers. So I tried everything I could do to get him to stopp. I would talk to him about boats,cars and show him what you can have when you work hard and not wastes your life.

    I found a guy on ksl that had hot rod boats for sale so I though I could get him excited if we saw some boats or got some parts.. The guy we visited had awesome boats,cars and a big shop. He gave us a tour and showed us his stuff. He also had some advice on boats and life..When we drove away from that guys shop my brother said I'm gonna have a boat as cool as his I just need to get my shit together..
    Fast forward five years my brother is sober has a real good jod. He bought a nice little flat bottom that needs a engine so he put it in storage.. Last month I found a boat on Craig's list that is the twin to my dad's boat a 1970 aqua craft flat bottom bbc powered turn key wow. I showed it to my little brother he said I'm gonna go buy it. We'll he did don't worry I post some pics. We'll I couldn't be more proud of him and guess what he got the boat and paid cash for it wow. Their is a lot of people who helped him and didn't even know they did. One of those people is on here and I wanted to tell you thank you we ow you a ride in his boat

      X2 - Sometimes we don't realize what huge difference people can make in someone's life - You may just have saved this young man's life with out realizing it - There are no medals for this.
