‘What an experience:' Grandfather, grandson take on 6,000-mile boating adventure
Loopers Faw
Bill and Peyton Faw cruised through the Great Dismal Swamp that has black water and is known for its reflective properties. The grandfather and grandson recently finished the 6,000-mile Great Loop. Photo courtesy Faw family.
“I dreamed of doing the Loop for more than 30 years. In September of 2020, I sold my house and bought a boat. After living on board and cruising from Beaufort, N.C., to Scottsboro, Ala., and then up and down the Tennessee River, I was ready for the Loop.” Bill Faw said.
