Dick mentioned that he made the Go Boat on his own and even produced a few of them in fiberglass. (or should I say "styled them in fiberglass") . A good friend of mine said he saw a show where they found something that looked like the Go Boat, said he saw it on one of those shows , like "pickers" where they find antiques and such and then sell them at auction. He is a pretty credible guy and wonder if in fact what he saw was one of Dicks boats. ??? that would be very cool. Just figure Id mention it to you and if you heard anything to that effect, or it might have been something similar.
Dick was very cool, he was "bigger... taller" than I expected,,lol. A very quiet and understated man. Maureen however is the outspoken one. It kind of reminded me of my wife and I, except the reverse. Im the loud mouth and my wife Laura is the voice of reason,,lol. Im going to keep in touch with them and I hope I can see them again someday.
my boat is coming along cosmetically and I need to pull the port engine and transmisson assembly sometime in the very near future as I lost one of my paragon transmissions, to the "stuck in foward" syndrome. That kind of bummed me out as I do this for a living and really hate doing mechanicals on my boat.lol.
anyway, you mentioned you wrote a couple of books, wondering if you can point me as to how to buy them or get them for myself, I would appreciate it. let me know
here are the rest of the picts I took at his house
