Jim Robello shares his youthful first-water- skiing- memories behind a Besotes boat with Mrs. Bette Besotes Gianelli and Robert Bosworth.  Bette is the daughter of Charlie Besotes, one of the two 1970’s era Besotes brothers boat builders in Stockton, CA. Besotes boats were recognized at the July 28, 2018 Runabouts on the River ACBS classic boating event held at the Stockton Sailing Club’s facilities.

“This year was a special event for us as we marked our 20th consecutive year of celebrating with our ACBS friends. Our founding theme still carries on: A gathering of families and friends to use and enjoy our antique and classic boats. Thank you to all who joined in and continue to make Wood & Glory another successful event!”
