FORT MYERS, Fla. — It was a fun coda to the Red Sox season, pitcher Jake Peavy purchasing the duck boat he rode in during the team’s World Series victory parade.
But Peavy wasn’t just a wealthy athlete making an impulse buy. He has big plans.
The boat is being shipped off to Texas for an elaborate paint job that will include images of the World Series trophy, the Boston Strong logo, and Peavy’s family. It took Peavy several months to find a company that could handle the job.
Jonny Gomes took a shot at painting the duck boat when he visited Peavy over the offseason. But it needs some more work, Peavy said Saturday.
