Go-fast is a term my family used for anything intended to move around at high-speed, and this boat is a real go-fast.
Or it would be if it were ever put in the water.
You see, this boat has been on the hard at our marina for at least a half-decade now. It’s covered in needles, pine cones, tree sap, bird yuck, and severe weathering. The nylon-cloth cover over the cockpit has been breached by vermin and the interior has been partly destroyed by squirrels and the like. I don’t know if the mechanical components even work today, as it has gone through many hard freezes without winterizing of any kind.
About once a year we see different strangers come by and look real intently at it, as if they’re sizing it up for purchase and restoration. But nothing ever happens and the boat (really just a hull at this point), continues to slowly molder into further decay.
I’m not a big fanboi of power boats, but this one has pretty lines and it’s a shame to see it end its days in such a decrepit fashion…
