Even a new sign
Well, well, we cannot claim the smallest show in the universe anymore. After doing some Gozintas, were came to the bold number of around 50 boats at the show. Dang! When and how did that happen. There was even a crowd there.
We even had some fancy pants people there – Thats Captain john Smiths row boat.
This is all very exciting stuff here in Reedville Virginia. The Reedville Fishermens Museum is a fantastic host and folks from all around show up to talk about whats in there barns.
John Rothert brought his bad ass Flathead boat. We still are not sure what it is, but is cool as hell
Which is a big reason why we show up. Ahhh the circle of life. The good news is that we have a bunch of adventures planed for when the weather turns to cold bitter sadness. But for now, this is the best time of year to be boating here on the bay.

John Rothert also brought a “Before” Whirlwind, and Jimmys Cavalier parked next to WECATCHEM
And yes, I did feel rather guilty knowing that our brothers and sisters in Florida and Texas were and are dealing with a mess. But while we are in the bitter cold I am sure there will be paybacks. Which we look forward too.
Stinky as usual needed to be out in the open!
WECATCHEM all dolled up with her new blue matching set of cushions

look closely. Closer. Thats molded out of plastic and then painted. Genus stuff and a great way to replicate some of these old badges. Eric Zelman is amazing!
All in all a great show, perfect weather and a great time catching up with old and new friends! Can’t wait til next year. There is something very special about small boat shows.
