From the files of
JOHN SNYDER, INVENTOR OF A SPECIFIC PONTOON

“This your dad’s office?”

“Yeah.”

“He’s got a lot of cool stuff.”

“Yeah. That’s his trophy.”

“What’s it for?”

“It’s his first place award. He got it for his invention, this special pontoon.”

“What’s a pontoon?”

“It’s a special thing that helps a boat float. Have you ever seen a catamaran?”

“No.”

“You can have a catamaran with two pontoons, or a trimaran with three. Dad invented a pontoon that’s only three inches in diameter.”

“Is that his record player?”

“Yeah, but don’t touch it.”

“My uncle has a record player.”

“Okay.”

“So I know all about them.”

“Let’s just go.”
