    The really "Old School" boating thread

    This thread will be for anything (or place) relating to boating but lets go "really" old. Post up pics and video older than 1980 please. I just had surgery on my knee yesterday so I'll have the time to keep bumping this thread as I scan new things from my archives. Hopefully Wheeler will help me out too.

    Not really. the first one I poached a couple years ago from a thread on PB. The LBMS pics I tripped over looking for info on Marion Beaver's "Gummy" hydros for a friend whos dad(Wayne Thompson) that drove the Uncle Gummy hydro, when Bob Ellis was driving the Gummy's Ghost hydro.
    The guys with the old flat is from Glen L's "news letters" There is some pretty cool pics buried in the site, You just have to dig for them because they are buried in years of news letters.
    The Mandella that Nordskog is driving still exists in resides in Palos Verdes, I believe with Bob's bother in law.

    Heres a little piece of history for you. You know what this is a picture of?
    I wish it was larger, but this is how I received it, and don't think the original pic is very big. maybe 3X5 max. This is the first time I have ever posted these online.

    What happened to the Salton sea? It's like a wasteland now. Pretty sad.
