    Kevin, I fixed the link you need to copy the URL located on the left of the video not the web address. This video has been posted before but worth watching again. Reminds me of Todd's video of his dad's boat.

    Did I miss something here? I just saw him walking toward the bright light with a smile on his face.

    It is a Discover Boating video;

    Good Run Video

    You'll laugh... You'll cry... You'll discover why Life is Better with a Boat! Watch the "Good Run" a short film directed by Academy Award nominated director Wally Pfister, that celebrates memories made taking life's journey by boat.

    This was very moving, brought tears to my eyes. I am 55 years old and have a picture of me on our bookshelf at 10 in a 10ft pram with my hand on the tiller of a 3.5hp outboard. My Dad and I build her on the backporch. He is gone now but the salt water is in my blood and now I strive to pass this along to my girls 17 and 22.

    Being 55 will only bring tears to you eyes. With me being 60 the tears ran down me cheeks.
    I think we all have the same story,but it takes way to long to realize it.

    Brings tears to my eyes at 37. With twin boys on the way, I'm hopeful I can pass on the passion, obsession of the boating lifestyle to them (as my dad did with me), and that I'll live to the ripe old age of the "salty old dog" in the video.

    Oh, and by the way, if your wife is having reservations on buying a boat, show her this video. It sealed the deal for me...dirty trick, I know. ; - )

    Great video - I didn't start boating as early as some - but I'm certainly trying to make up for lost time now. I'm pretty sure I've corrupted my daughter and son so they will continue to appreciate the wonder of being on and near the water. Thanks for posting it.
