And what would they talk about? “He loved me most.” “I taught him


to splitwheel.” “We spent that glorious weekend together on the Upper Yough.” “He dumped me for her? Yuck. Look how skinny she is.” “I didn’t let him treat me like that. I flipped his skinny ass out. I made him walk home.” All true. Not even Owen Wilson would


come out the end of this one smelling like a rose. Looking back, each boat I’ve owned


has a special place in my heart. Each one taught me something about the river and about myself. Some of these I still own. Others I wish I did. And now, for all my river loves, I sing

hope this editorial is enough proof // You live within my heart // I’ll always be a part // Of all the boats I’ve loved before. —Scott MacGregor is the founder and
