Sometimes, all it takes is a first encounter with a boat owner to realize how impressed and excited they are about their boat. That's exactly what I saw the first time I talked with Tim Galante. He and his wife, Mary, recently bought a 24-foot Sylvan Mirage 8524, which came equipped with a 115hp Mercury four-stroke engine. This sharp-looking Sylvan is the second boat they have owned. Their first boat? A Sylvan, of course. It's common knowledge that when you have something great, it only makes sense to stay with it. For Tim, there was nothing greater than a Sylvan, and he was more than happy to let me know all about it.
