Fellow Woody Boater Sean Slats just reported in, we don’t have many of the details, only that Randy had been ill for some time and passed away yesterday.. To say that the passion of classic boating will miss Randy is a massive understatement. Streblow Boats is one of the very few companies still making speedboats the way the gods intended them to be made.. From wood and by hand with quality and passion in each and every craft they made. To see a Streblow boat in person is to see how and why the company is still making masterpieces.. Photo’s don’t do these boats justice. There is no web site for Streblow Boats, Randy was old school.. So chances are he was not even aware of Woody Boater, but we were very aware of him. He made a difference…. for sure… So today we take a pause from facebook, tweeting, and fly our burgees at half mast.. Thanks Randy for keeping the dream going strong. The best place to see more Streblow Boats is at the Streblow Boat Owners site here. There is also a fantastic article on the family here.
