    Miracle Photography will be reporting for duty Sir! We are really looking forward to this wonderful event. We consider it an honor to photograph our troops enjoying all of the beautiful antique boats for Woody Boater readers. Hope to see you all there!

      Thanks Robert – We are looking forward to the coverage from the Camp Lejeune Military Appreciation Event next weekend and of course your awesome photography.

      Alan & Faye Smith (“SmithSkiff”) will also be there with Robert & Linda Miracle and Ginger & Randy Clark (“OoRAH”) to assist with the Live-ish reports from the event for Woody Boater.

      This is guaranteed to be a unique, fun, classic boating event for a great cause – The US Marines and their Families.

    Yikes! I only bought a Captain’s hat from you – do you have a General’s Hat with scrambled eggs on the bill, etc.???????

    Sorry Matt – Would love to help out but 11 hours each way is just too much, when a few days after that I have to drive home. Would be a no brainer if it was only 3 or 4 hours.

    Looking forward to this show! It is going to be one to remember, for more than one reason. Driving there is going to be a small payback when you compare the trip to what these men and women have given to all of us…See y’all soon!

    I had my passport all ready and the ice is out (and I’m 4F), guess I’ll have to cancel the trip north to go to this.
