  1. Back in the late fifties a man I knew bought a new boat. It was a fancy one with one of those tall mercury engines they made back then. It cost a bundle. He put it in the water, took off and ran over both of his little girls killing them both. That boat was pulled out and put in a barn. It never saw the water again and I doubt it traveled over two hundred feet in the water. He would not sell it. I always wondered what happened to it. He was a man then and I was just a kid so I'm sure he is long gone. It was a tragedy for sure.
