This is a story about Scott Randall, known as "Raystown" by his friends. At the age of 58, he still lives in his hometown of Portage, Pa. His father Cliff is no longer alive, but his mother Ruthie was able to share her memories of raising Scott and tracing back his love of the water.

Cliff owned a Chrysler dealership in Portage and in 1953 he won a 20-foot boat through a sales contest with Chrysler. Cliff and Ruthie named the boat LUCKY BREAK for obvious reasons and they decided to use it on Raystown Lake, known to the locals as the old dam.?
