Allen Moore’s nephew, Gerald J. Kamman recalls many fond memories of being at Oak Orchard when he was young. He remembers the old wooden boats that the locals had. When he was older he brought his 1974 Donzi to Oak Orchard to give us thrilling rides aboard his modern classic.
Gerald J. Kamman writes:
This photo of my boat and your grandfather, Al Moore taken at Oak Orchard in the summer of 1980. The boat is a 1974 Donzi Doral 24′ with a below deck cutty. She had 600 total HP grow two 357 cubic inch Corvette engines – turning a pair of 270 Volvo outdrives. She was re-engined in the mid 80s. Home ports for her were: Annapolis, MD – Louisville, KY – Ft. Lauderdale, FL – Marble Falls, TX – Point Breeze, NY – and Catawba Island, OH. After 16 years of great times, I turned over the keys in Williston, SC.
