50s Lone Star Aluminum Boat
This is the real deal: a 1950s aluminum Lone Star boat–highly collectible. There’s something appealing about the 50s style, the sharp angles, the bright colors . . . the fins, even the Bakelite plastic. When I ride my bike down the causeway, I pass this boat. I have been passing this boat for two years now and wondering why I’ve never seen it on the water.
I’m picturing myself in a turqoise scarf ala Audrey Hepburn, a sleeveless blouse with the collar turned up, and gingham petal pushers cruising through the channel. . . wish it were mine.

Quote of the Day for YOU: There is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.
