Pete worked with me when I wanted to purchase a boat for my Mom's 70th birthday. To help me save money he offered to make the boat on his new mold. He told me that the first boat made on a new mold was always done in fiberglass because if there ended up being a problem, it was cheaper than having to toss a kevlar boat; no carbon fiber at that time. It was a very generous offer and allowed me to get the canoe for my Mom; who paddled it until just after her 90th birthday. Even though the boat was still under 20 pounds, I remember him apologizing for it being "so heavy." Quite the guy...

That's all for now. Take care and until next well.
