Yesterday we talked about 6 volt lights and making sure you are up to date on luminosity. One other thing, that to be honest about, is the mispercetion that our boats are grandfathered regarding safety rules. WRONG! DEAD WRONG! It’s not like cars and things from the factory or lack there of. Vents? Blowers? Electronics?... Read more.

Fellow Woody Boater Walt Stashkiw reports in from Ohio. It reads like a formal report and all the words are spelled right. I think, not sure. Like a buried Philips screw on a pre-war bottom. I can’t tell. Regardless, it’s nice to see a cool show happening on a warm weekend! On Saturday June 24... Read more.

I know I know, it’s not made of wood. But there is a strip of wood like stuff on the dash. So it’s in. This thing is stunning. It looks like a 1969 Z/28 made sweet love to a bass boat in the garage. And this came out. It’s pure 60’s – 70’s muscle, and... Read more.
