Sorry for your loss LaRue. The passing of a close mate is never easy let alone your brother. Prayers and thoughts your way. Cherish the memories.

"Heavy" beer is for wine drinkers that are too embarrassed to drink wine in front of their buddies. "Light" beer is a drinkin' man's beer!

According to Google, Dixie was a company in NC that has gone out of business. They made the boats in OB, IO, and inboard.
My Dad was a dealer for Dixie boats in the late 50's. At that time they only made wood boats that were pretty sharp. They had a 14 foot and a 16 foot OB type that were very pretty boats. They were just beginning to make fiberglass boats during those years. Also, during that time they had a big fire that didn't help but they survived that and built boats for more years. Don't know what happened eventually but in our area you could see a fair number of their boats on the local lakes. I have a good friend that still has his Dixie IO that has been well kept but he is the type that keeps all his stuff next to new regardless of age.
The plant was in Newton NC.

Saw this on my way home today. BMW 540 towing this byliner. We were on the freeway at the time in traffic but it cleared up quick.
