Ahh, The Good Ol’ Days

Power & Motor Yacht - - INBOX -

The Af­ter­word col­umn in May is­sue re­ally jolted my mem­ory banks. I ac­tu­ally met Pierre Pierce at Miami’s Cran­don Park Ma­rina in the mid ’70s.

At that time he owned and char­tered a 25-foot P&D named Flori­days, which sported the fa­mous can­vas cuddy en­clo­sure.

We saw each other a few times af­ter that but even­tu­ally we lost con­tact with him. Though I do re­mem­ber him say­ing that he and his wife were leav­ing for their an­nual Ba­hamas char­ter out of Freeport, Grand Ba­hamas.

It was good to read about what be­came of him and I’m glad that Power & Mo­to­ry­acht pays homage to the gun-sling­ing days of the ’80s.
