In what is a yearly pilgrimage we are off to Quimby Country, In Averill Vermont. Fly fishing, hiking, swimming, and some sailing on a Big Averill Lake. But what about woody boating? It’s all to much to be hauling around the Chris Craft. 3 kids and all there stuff. Soooo, I have solved that with a very interesting early 60’s sunfish. Chucked it on the roof. Unclaimed territory… And yes its wood, the way god intended boats to be. Yesterday was spent stripping her down to that nice wood, and applying her first coat of varnish. Dang! not bad for a boat that was left in the yard for 45 years. Now all I need is a darn fire wire to show her off. And that for sure is not at Quimby’s. Quimby’s has been around since the late 1800’s. It is UNCHANGED, never restored or vynalized. It’s the real deal. No TV. No Cell phones. Nothing but the same amazing group of folks that runs the place and family and the same friends that do the same each year. It’s like unplugging ones self. Something that is true to the woody boat life style. There is a web site though. www.quimbycountry.com Kinda like the Amish having a web site. It just ain’t right, but I suppose it’s a good thing. That way in the dead of winter when its 30 below up there in the north east kingdom, I can go to the site and it’s summer again.. At least on my laptop. For the next week we will be broadcasting live …a lot more alive by the way from Quimby’s .. not sure how. Possibly smoke signals.
