I LOVED MY PATERNAL GRANDPA, Kyle, dearly. He had moved to Seattle shortly after my parents did in 1952. Dad purchased a boat for his father, an older, fifty-foot recreational trawler that became Grandpa’s home. The Beachcomber was a homely but well-built vessel that my grandfather had tied up to a pier on Lake Union. He seemed content in his life on the water. My dad and I used to escape “the women at the house,” leaving to spend time with Grandpa on the boat, watching Big Time Wrestling on his small, rabbit-eared black-and-white TV after a day of fishing and a spartan evening meal of fried Spam and canned pork and beans.
