Love the tiller. Run from the station or the transom when fishing. The predecessor to today's 2nd station on Parkers, Maycraft, and others.

lucky enough to have caught my first blue marlin on that boat.

Not really mine, but I used to manage and run her for about five years. I miss getting paid to swim, crab, tong, and fish.

1961 Corson with a 1971 50hp Johnson that me, my father, and brother bought.
Average day with the boat. Working on it more than enjoying it. My buddy was pretty excited once we finally got it running. Sold it after 1 season

Now your talk en. This is my type of boating.
Thanks. Ist pic is us passing under the opening in the old bridge at Bahia Honda, one of our favorite anchorages. 2nd pic is moored in Westport Ma, home of the Tripp Angler. In fact the Tripps run the moorings and use one of their boats as the launch. Got to know Carl and Harry well. I had Carl move my boat a couple of times which he always considered a big treat. Lots of candidates for this thread in that harbor.

Looking through this thread with the wife, we agreed we'd love to have any of the boats posted so far in the fleet. Keep 'em coming!
