Last week, while keeping an eye on pre-orders coming in for the Speed On The Water 2021 Year In Review collector’s edition magazine, I noticed an order come through for longtime speedonthewater.com friend Phil Kemp, an Iowa native who moved to Florida recently for a job in the marine industry as a Test Engineer with Brunswick’s Advanced Systems Group in Panama City.

I immediately thought about the Image of the Week from late-January featuring Kemp’s then-1-year-old son, Jack, appearing to be picking his favorite of the six editions of the Year In Review magazines his father has accumulated since 2015. It’s probably my all-time favorite reader submission featuring the Year In Review publication—although we’ve had some great ones sent to us over the years.
Next, I decided to email Kemp to see if the little guy, who turned 2 a few weeks back, would pose again to help us promote this year’s magazine sales.
Kemp, who has provided a couple of awesome shots of his magazine collection in the past, obliged and sent a few images of boating’s next generation picking out his dad’s future boat and playing with his toy boat next to the Christmas tree (below) in anticipation of the 2021 Year In Review that comes out in about a month.
“I absolutely can get you an updated picture,” Kemp replied via email. “I’ll take a few tonight and send them your way. We have a few tricks to get a 2 year old to sit and smile for a second or two (LOL).”
Once again, I’d like to thank Kemp for his excellent submissions and can’t wait to see what he comes up with once he the seventh annual Year In Review magazine in his hands.
