Hi

Could you please tell me if this sentence is fully natural?

  1. As a boy, I loved to drive my boat under the bridge while the train went overhead.
  2. As a boy, I loved to drive my boat under the bridge while the train ran overhead.

Both sentences are grammatical, but unusual. You usually don't "drive a boat," unless it's motor launch, and a young boy would usually not have such an expensive boat.
