  1. Hi Dave, thanks for taking a picture of the Gambler I haven’t seen it for about 12 years. My Father built the Gambler in Marysville Wa in 1969 by himself in 7 months. He took a big gamble and invested everything we had to build this boat over the winter and had to have it fishing ready for the June opening. He made it and fished the Gambler until he past away in 2000. Could you give me the name of the harbor it was in when you took the picture, thanks. Don McGhee Jr. donleejr@comcast.net
