Rick Stout of Owen Sound notes (Feb. 2006): the Pijitic was a very heavy old boat and had a Chrysler Straight 8 Royal engine. I knew the boat as well as I know my own. As a kid growing up at the yacht club, it was there most of my childhood. Dr, Doug Whitesides brought it into the yacht club in the mid 60's. Doug Graham bought it in July of 1978. At 18, I was noted as being a great boat handler. Doug Graham was a good friend and asked me to run the Pijitic every time he wanted to go for a ride. Doug and Mary Graham, are still in town on 15th street west, and Pijitic was in GYC Owen Sound until 2000. SB notes: Rick has the original Chrysler Straight 8 engine from the Russel built 30' tender boat Carol Lynn (which was escorting the Translake III drilling rig when it capsized) in his dad's wooden excursion boat Rayn-Bow II. Rick's dad got the engine from the boat at the GYC owen Sound, from Colin Glen.
