Andre Langworthy's column: For the love of Dad

Email

Towards the end of last month, I watched a news report about a 60-foot cruiser that sunk in the St. Croix River in Hudson, Wisc. Just seeing the vessel made me cringe. I had often worried about sinking while on a houseboat on that same river.

In the early 1970s, my father decided to buy a boat. The decision may have been symptomatic of a mid-life crisis but it was so out of character I worried Dad may have lost his mind. I don’t even know if the man could swim.
