Discover’s Voyage of a Lifetime

NEW YORK Father’s Day is Sunday. And if your dad likes boats, he might appreciate this free video e-card created by Carmichael Lynch for the Discover Boating campaign for the National Marine Manufacturers Association. The card, available at AmericanGreetings.com, features a short film that chronicles the life of a seasoned boater. Now elderly, he reviews his life on film. Images flicker on a wall: The man as a boy, fishing; as a groom taking off with his young wife; and finally, as an older man enjoying a cruise with friends. The sentiment is endearing; however, the film itself is much too long. It’s doubtful that even the most avid boater would want to spend that much time online reliving someone else’s memories on Father’s Day. But it’s the thought that counts.
