This is the official shot they sent.. All the students look interested in what Joel has to say..

Live from Cincinnati Ohio..  to this weekends class on everything cool about your classic boat and how to do it yourself.  These classes at the Antique Boat Center are a gold mine of information for any level Do it yourselfer. For me, it was just to have adult supervision when I tried the basics. Which scare the crap out of me… or used to.. After watching Dick Warner screw up his stripes, I felt better.. Thanks Dick.. This weekends class is no different.. Fun folks with fun folks having.. guess what? a fun time with classic boats.. Now, I just heard that Lou had left, so I guess he got tired on that pole… Read way below on this page to see reference.. So.. here are some snap shots live from the event… AND… OH GOODY GOODY, they gave us no copy.. so .. WE GET TO MAKE THEM UP! Wooohoooo!

COED's and a baggy with something.. mmm how quickly it all turns into a party.. You did not pay all that money so you could party.. Get sanding!

Joel talking... Frank looking on, and DEAR GOD.. Whats going on on the right.. Thats a look like.." hey, I'm in the witness protection program, ahh wait, it's Ok , it's not like your going to send these off to a publication who will have my image plastered all over the internet.. Ha ha" right?

Ok, this one looks like Joel.. Talking on the right... made a noise heard on the far left.. and well.. someone smelled it on the left..? just say'n.. I write them as I see them..

    Tommy Holmes would be worth a trip to the Antique Boat Center in January to hear him talk about Century boats. He is a most interesting speaker and a good entertainer with plenty of great humor. So a Chris-Craft or Lyman guy can enjoy it as much as the hard core Century folks do. He’s a joy to be around.
