My mom let me borrow some of her photo albums and I was able to rummage through and snag quite a lot of pictures of my uncles Wriedt, my dads Tahiti and Eliminator.

I thought they would be fun to share. Most of them Kyle isnt even born and I am in diapers  ;D

Taco'd "a person or people that show up with one lake lice and a family of 50 and cram 3 people at a time on it with no disregard to boating rules or ethics. Usualy crap in toilets and throw shit paper in trash cans. Hang out at the boat ramp like its a swimming hole. Have zero insurance on anything they own and dont give two shits less about your property."

That is some pretty righteous stuff Brad And Kyle.  Your Dads are quite the hunks.  Good times and they continue in some longer shorts and bigger bellies I'm sure.  How about those babes too.  I too remember those glassy AMs at the river and and Havasu with the roar beginning at sun-up.

Later dudes, Catfighter

I need to go through some old pics to see if there are any of my wife and here family (her dad built up a Fantasy from a bare hull in the late 70's).  I was not lucky enough to go to the river before I was old enough to go on my own  :'(

Very cool pics Brad. My parents have some great pictures from the 70's of what was called the Blue Water Bash at of course Blue Water marina. I will try to get ahold of them at some point and get them posted. If your parents went to Parker alot I'm sure they heard of it.

Great thread Brad. I'm glad someone brought it back up to the top.

Here's dads first boat, Bullhead City in the background across the river. My folks and I, 1961.

Ten years later at our place in Parker that we had til '97. Me and my friends in the blue boat, the first 18 Tahiti Tarino. I was 15 at the time. Lots o fun.  ;)

Directly across from our place at Parker was originally Tommy Kinders campground. Later it was sold and became....Riverland resort! You guys were camping right across from us, we must have been there at the same time several times through the years.
