Dad loved his boat! My brothers and I have so many awesome memories with my dad at the river. Dad taught the three of us how to ski on the red skis (that were tied together). He would also take part in whipping us around on the banana tube. The best memories were just floating down the river with everyone. Many times I would tuck myself under the dash where the extra life jackets were kept as he would race through the water. He would let us drive the boat sometimes, my favorites times as a child were on the water with my dad and my brothers.
