Quote by Mrs. Tolman
"The reason they mean so much is my late husband and my son built a Tolman skiff. My husband had seen one when we were in Homer and fell in love with the design. He ordered either a book or a set of plans and he and my son spent one winter building the skiff in our garage.
When we were finally able to take the boat down to Homer, we happened to run into Renn and he complimented them on the finished boat. The guys were thrilled.
My husband moved to the east coast when my son headed off to college and they had to sell the boat. He passed away a few years ago and my son took his ashes up to Homer, his favorite place. While he was there, he happened to be walking through the harbor and saw the boat. It brought back so many memories for him.
So when someone showed me a picture of the shirts, I just knew I had to get them.
There's a picture of his skiff on this website."
