      I know we post soooo much about casinos here of course , but I am so proud of this. I bought a 1971 Hydrasports with a 150 hp racing Mercury otherwise known as 'The tower of power'. Dad and I worked hard all winter and had a blast. She rode so well this Summer!!!  See what a little love and elbow grease can do?  Hope you enjoy the before and after pics, mates!

      Thanks Cranders!  Dad won't be around forever so this project meant so much to me when he said he would help with it. Bonus is that now I'm older and I actually want to listen to him!  Kept me off the laptop too which is always a good thing. . Every daughter should be as lucky as I am to have such an awesome knowledgeable dad.

      Thanks Rena. I have learned so much about boating from him since I was born lol. Boaters license at 13, boaters safety courses at 10, waterskiing, tubing, fixing the engine, properly mixing the gas, parking in the water as well as driving a trailer to launch if I need to. Glad I can pass these things on to my daughter, we have started already.

      That's fantastic Jodi.  You are indeed a very lucky lady, not just to be able to do all those things but also to be able to share them with your Dad.  Kudos to you and kudos to your Dad.

      Thank you Blue and Nirvana. It's so good to know that no matter what happens we built this incredibly awesome toy and spent such good quality time together at a period in our lives that was enjoyable for both of us. This will be passed on down through the generations I'm sure.

      Now next time anyone is in Missouri give me a holler and I'll take ya out and show ya what this baby can do!  Tops out at about 75 MPH!!!

      It made me quite sad reading this post, as my dad was forever pestering me to do a similar project with him for a long time before he passed away - he was a mechanic his whole life and I guess desperately wanted to spend more time with me whilst he had it left. Make the most of the time you have with your parents, thats all I really wanted to say.

      You are so right about making the most of our time with them. I make it a point to call them both at least once every couple of days. I'm so sorry it made you sad, but think about all of the great accomplishments that your father has watched you make from up above. He's still with you. Head up.
