    Say high to Alan from all your friends in Algonac. Tell him to bring his Gar Wood to the show next year and he can give you a ride. On my way to Algonac!

    Aren’t there country and western boat songs? Like my sinking heart or you pulled my drain plug or our love will float forever or ……

    Does Alan look OK? He has 4 full pages of boats for sale in the recent CLASSIC BOATING. His house is for sale too. Sounds like woody boater blues!

      He looked fantastic. Maybe he is down sizing.. I think he has kids in school. Nothing more lonely than a 30 million dollar home with no kids in it..

    Matt and Susie,

    BUT…did he perform “Drive” – my personal favorite and the anthem to classic boats/cars! I never pass up a chance to see Alan if he’s within 500 miles from home!

    Yes he did .. This guy is the best writer on the planet. No one turns a phrase like him. And.. He doesn’t have to worry about spelling!

    Seen him twice and he is a great performer. Always wanted to do a Brass Bell story but can’t get to him. He is very private I understand but why couldn’t he creep the door open just a bit to talk about classic boats. I don’t have any interest in his professional day job, just boats!

    Happy B-Day Suzie. Can’t wait to see you guys at Tahoe. It’s going to be a blast

      Don, Maybe a story about the boats he’s donated or sold (soon). Itty Bitty is down here in the Blue Ridge Chapter. New owner’s are a wonderful couple.

    Don….ill see if I can get some doors open so you can possibly interview him for the Bell.

    how cool could that be!

    we would enjoy hearing the story of his boats..what attracted him to the different ones; how did the family enjoy using them, hope there is a fun story about how he found some of them (maybe going down the road, spotting an old barn…)

    no doubt in our minds that he would be as nice in person as we imagine him to be; he strikes us as a “what you see – is what you get” type of man…what’s not to like!

    and that don would do a great story…

    …The FIRDAY night before he was performing in CHATTANOOGA, Tn on the waterfront , Peole could sit in their boats. . People said it was great…!
