Boats have been a part of my family for as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories are of being on the lake in Montana at Gates of the Mountains. My brothers and I grew up on boats, and my Dad is a boat guy. This is a movie about my fathers restoration of the family boat Andante, a 1948 Chris Craft Sedan Deluxe. However this is more than just a story about a boat. It’s about history, patience, persistence, a never faltering will, and a dream. Watch and get a little insight into our family, and my amazing parents. There really is something special about messing around with boats. This film is dedicated to my parents, Bill and Suzanne Brooks. I am continually inspired by your drive, patience, will of spirit, and adventurous spirit.
