I am looking through the camera thinking, "this is great" She is thinking, Dear lord that old fat man is going to have a heart attack, And Bob Kays is thinking. OH,,, Thats the shot of the week!
Ya had to be there….. And of course thanks to many fellow Woody Boaters we were all able to do just that. Don Ayers reporting in from a Riva Event on Lake Tahoe, Paul ” Our Reporter Broken Down On The Side Of The Road” Harrison and his amazing bride Karen From Sandpoint Idaho, Alex Watson doing a bad baby sitting job from Hessle,Ron Stevenson from Washington State, Mike Green from a show in Michigan, and Texx for somehow making it all happen at Woody Boater HQ.. Dang.. And of course all this was playing out while I was… playing out.side.. On our trip to Mohawk Lake NJ.. What a cool place.. So here are some shots from the weekend..
Two Big Woodys Were handed out this weekend to Don Ploetner and Seth Katz of Katz's marina for an outstanding job on putting together a new show from scratch at lake Mohawk. The work that went into this is note worthy. Alex Kays killed himself making this all happen as well. The three of them had to create every detail on a private lake with only one access point. Is went perfectly and should set a new standard for some other small shows.. Amazing job.. Congrats on your Big Woodys.. I know your significant others will be impressed.
We spent sunday out on this amazing 1960 24 sportsman. 99 3/4 points.. You will never guess why it was dinged 1/4 point at the Clayton show.. More on that tomorrow.. Amazing boat
So while we are all enjoying a normal life.. The Riva folks on Lake tahoe are eating all the Lobster they can eat.. Dang! All I had was grey Poupn.. What the hell, no one told me that there was Lobsa on the other coast..
Out on Lake Tahoe, Don Ayers was roughing it
Just another quiet morning on lake tahoe
Port Orchard at the Chris Craft Randevoius..Boy I buthered that spelling. But dang who cares... what ever ya call it, it looks like a fun time. You can read all about it below

Mike Green from maritime Classics was emailing and taunting me with another beutiful 24 sportsman for sale up in Michigan. As boxy as these boats are, they are underrated and amzing on the water for a fun party. Thanks Mike
