Sorry for the delay this morning, but I was in negation regarding the following images that are so un heard of. You won’t believe your eyes.. It all started with a simple drive to the river house to tuck away the official Go To Woody Boat. No biggy.. a simple 3 hr drive and then make sure all the heat was working in the house and pop home.. And then it happened.. A simple text image from Fellow Woody Boater Jim Scott.. He was flipping is small pre war utility.. With two tractors!
I was about 2 hours away, and had to go see it all.. Now… One problem.. Or so I thought.. The boatress was with me.. 6 hrs in a car can actually be fun when you are with your side kick. The boatress has been on many a long trip.. It’s peaceful get away time.. NOW, but… going to work on a boat bottom? No way.. OR? What the hell, its Christmas, lets go see Jimmy.. I was shocked when she said sure, sounds like fun, we are just going to see the guys right.. SURE.. We show up and the boat is flipped and Patrick and Jimmy are trying different methods to pull the screws out..
And then it happened..Please understand, these images were gathered under extreme risk to my person. These images have never been seen before..
Yes.. An actual wife working joyfully on the bottom of a boat.. Old crap bottom paint. Scraping away the paint so we can find were to drill. Amazing.. Those are very expensive once a week manicured nails! These are not posed. No sir..
This is about an hours worth of work.. Laughing all the way. In fact we are planning a party this weekend..There is something fun about being with pals and good music, and suds, working on a boat that is magical.. Call me crazy.. But even the boatress agreed.. I consider this my Christmas miracle.. Saturday marked our 25th annaverary.. She never ceases to amaze me. I hope you all had a great holiday as I.. Stay tuned for images of the first Woody Boater Bottoms Up-party this weekend..
