Many, many thanks to everyone who participated in this astonishing display of generosity that resulted in Chris and me receiving such an unanticipated showering of gifts!

When the Whaler section of the website was begun about two years ago it was never foreseen that it could grow to the level of interest and participation that it has now achieved. In a sense, I always knew that there was something special about Boston Whaler boats, and I now appreciate that there is something special about the people that own them.

May all your holiday celebrations be as merry as you have made ours!

Your humble webmaster,

Ironically, all these photographs were taken last winter, one of the coldest in decades, so in actual fact we have not a wisp of snow on the ground around here yet, and the weather has often been mild enough to make one seriously think of putting the boat back in the still liquid water. Real winter, we know, is coming soon, and we will likely be experiencing scenes like these again.

Congratulations Jim H. You deserve every gift you got and a hell of alot more!! Even if I sell my Currituck, I will definately stick around and be active on this great Forum. Someday I will get another Classic Whaler and hopefully itll be a Nausett,Eastport,Montauk, I guess I am to old to sit on bench seats anymore on Lake Erie!! Jack.

Merry Christmas and many thanks for enabling a resource that has great value to me in many ways.

And Mac - what in the world were you doing up around White Fish Falls in *that* kind of weather? (p.s. I have a photo some where that looks just about like that one, except the water isn't hard.)

Jim - Thanks for all your effort this past year (and years before).

Everybody - I just looked at Page 47. Great shots. Here in Juneau, 58-38N, sunrise was at 8:45 AM this morning, and sunset is at 3:12 PM (June 22, sunrise 3:50 AM, sunset 10:08 PM). BUT, more daylight than yesterday! It snowed for 3 weeks straight in early December, -2F and up to 2-feet of snow on the ground), but since last Thursday, its been in the mid-30s to mid 40s and raining (44 this morning). So much for a nice white Christmas!

Happy and Safe Holidays to all of you. I appreciate all of your knowledge and comments. Here's to a great boating year in 2002!

Juneau, Alaska

Jim, your site is the best thing that has come along for me on the net so far. I see my wife, daughter and son enjoying it also. It's very educational, great to share info, clean, and fun to swap stories. I also like the group of people here. You really have something special going on here. Please keep it up! Happy New Year! Regards, Jay

Again, thanks to all and a special tip of the hat to Jay--you have overwhelmed us!

As several people mentioned, I corrected the year of the model to be 1961 instead of 1968.

I also added a scan of the certificate.

In all, a super gesture and hard for me to properly acknowledge but to say "Thanks!"
