Yesterday’s story has provoked the most emails in woody boater history. Not that many comments, but emails. Dang! Surprisingly all positive. I thought for sure I would be getting hate email. But as one email said. ” I love it. The problem is that none of of the folks at the ACBS will be able to find your post. It is on the Internet after all!!! I wish this new-fangled web thing would just go away”.. This quote is hands down a classic. The reason it was an email and not a comment is because this hobby is full of polite folks that just want to get along! The world is littered with conflict after all. Why here, we are all trying to do the same thing. Am I creating a problem with a post like this? Or trying to solve one? I believe in my heart, I am trying to solve one. A whopping big one that has been ignored. It’s not about age by the way. It’s about a mindset. Many of Woody Boaters readers, as well as the boat buzz and Dannenburg’s forum are over 60. In fact a majority. In a recent survey done, the bulk age of this hobby is in there 50’s-60’s. The other thing is that, this group, spends an amazing amount of time on line. Playing games, emailing grand kids, and finding good prices on medication. So why not have one central place that they can talk boats? That is were the ACBS should be. And right now it’s not, and very shortly will loose it’s status as that. As another email said. “They are going to get hit in the pocketbook soon. How long can they continue to publish a phone book size annual tome??? With the trees they kill for that they could make lots of woody boats!” So. hopefully this will not fall on deaf ears. Not that I am implying that everyone at the ACBS has hearing aids….. I am just saying. We here at Woody Boater care about the ACBS. And want to make sure it stays afloat and very relevant.
