My Dad bought a Scott Atwater that we would put in the trunk, take to the boat launch, and rent a wooden boat to put it on. It was great to be able to motor around instead of fishing from a pier. My first experience fishing under the birds. This was in the early-mid 50’s on the Laguna Madre in Corpus Christi. A big rig then was one powered by twin 22 HP Johnson SeaHorses.
