I certainly loved and admired all of Lenn's nautical creations, and his pond as well, but that is all part of history, as is the tale of the "Big Fitz", which was well documented many a year ago by the Discovery Channel, as seen here:

"Information is not knowledge, Knowledge is not wisdom, Wisdom is not truth, Truth is not beauty, Beauty is not love, Love is not music: Music is THE BEST...   
Wisdom is the domain of the Wis (which is extinct). Beauty is a French phonetic corruption of a short cloth neck ornament currently in resurgence..."

Just seen this post thanks Nick for remembering the great Fitz, we really miss the boat pond too and running the boats.
I`m getting so laid up now days i can`t get down by the ground anymore, can`t run the trains anymore either.
Ahhh the fun of aging.
Thanks for the replies too.  :)
