Milton School in Rye 1968. After school one day Bobby Derecktor asked Chris C. and I to help him take his mom's boat "the Goose" from their house on the Point around to the yard in Mamroneck. It needed some work I believe. It was an uneventful trip of about 1 hour. We motored most or all of the way. Details have become sketchy. I remember The Goose was a 20-25 foot open daysailor. None of this story is remarkable except that we were all in fifth grade at the time. I was 9, they were 10. My kids played with Polly Pockets at that age.
