In the last couple of years, my grandparent's both passed away. First my grandmother and then last year, my grandfather. Growing up, my parent's used to take us kids, out on my grandparent's boat. I have fond memories of fishing and crabbing, and sleeping in the back.

The boat is a 1955 Bryant wood boat, that in it's time was just gorgeous. Now it needs some work. The motor doesn't work anymore and the wood needs sanded and perhaps updated in a few places that's it's a bit soft. Nobody in the family wanted to mess with the boat and they were talking about scrapping it so I jumped on the opportunity. Yes it needs work, but my husband has been wanting a project for awhile anyways so I think it's a win win. I just couldn't let this boat get scrapped. It's beautiful. We took some pics yesterday and i'm looking forward to seeing what it looks like and actually taking it out in the future! I can't wait to see Gideon spend a couple of days out in the water on it.
