That was incredible. I started thinking to criticize and come back to you with how it could be better, but I was blown away by the first page. I can't sum up the words, I was completely engaged and it ended so well.

The father son connections, the details, the style, in a way reminded me a lot of Kafka. It's so simple and sweet however, no rambling or lost directions.

Keep up the good work.

This was a nice story. Very heartfelt. I liked the way the author connects the three generations of men, and I found the descriptions of the boat to be enjoyable.

In addition, I really felt emotionally connected to the narrator.

Only real criticism would be the line "since he was staying the night" on the last page. It felt like too much explaining for the end of the story, and took me a bit out of the flow of the end of an enjoyable story.

Overall: Good job! Keep writing :)
