Tick Tock Index

Sailing  a change of pace from power boating

Tom Tim and Terry out for a sail  circa. 1970


During the original "Tick Tock Years" (and beyond), it wasn't always just power boating.


The Tock family grew up power boating, but Sailing played a part also.

Tom was "the" sailor of the family from early on. Starting with the Styrofoam sailboat, he later crewed on a sailboat racing in nearby Spring Lake.

His passion for sailing developed much more, and he has since then sailed most of northern Lake Michigan and the North Channel.
