From the desk of Mike Joyce
“You won’t need a facelift after this ride!!”
Jan Joyce, VP of Hargrave Yachts said that at 50 mph she felt her face tightening up in the wind and told her brother Joe “You won’t need a face lift after this ride!!
Jan was riding in the bow cockpit yelling “faster” as Bobby Banister from 1st Performance Marine in Fort Lauderdale treated Jan’s family to a thrill ride through the 1000 Islands aboard thethe 35′ replica of Gar Wood’s famous race boat BABY GAR V. Jan’s brother Joe and his two daughters Kayla and Jordin were visiting this week when Bobby stopped by with co-pilot Paul Hartwick from Kingston. Bobby’s island is near Jan and Mike’s, and Mike Joyce said, “I see a lot more of Bob here in Canada than I do back in Fort Lauderdale!”
The BABY GAR V, an exact replica of the original, was one of the star attractions in the recent Antique Race Boat Regatta held at the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton, NY. Mike Joyce called the Antique Boat Museum one of the best marine museums in the world and said anyone who loves boating should put the ABM on their “bucket list” of must see attractions. www.abm.org
