And you get to breath in the fresh varnish during January at the Antique Boat Center.. Tons.. literally tons of beautiful classic boats to rub up against to..mmmm  and yes, Lou may even show up.. Sans his tights… ROCK ON LOU!

    Wow, no comments. I guess Centurys are not as popular as HALs (53 comments). Alex maybe there is a bigger market than you think for your boat.

    Tommy puts on one of the most informitive and THE absolutly funniest presentation I have ever seen!!!! Surely one of the better seminars ABC does!!!!

    If I did not have a prior commitment this weekend, I would drive through snow, wind, ice and all other obstacles to listen to Tommy H. He is not only the premier authority on everything CENTURY, but will throw in his “own spice” to keep your interest at the forefront for the entire presentation. He has quite a collection of vintage photos with boat gals and although I’m “vintage” myself, no pics of me!

    Rick, that’s nice of you, but if you take those 53 comments and divide them by 2 (removing mine), you get… well, you get the picture.

    Wow, I’m like a perpetual motion machine. I write articles, then I comment on them. Either that, or it’s my split personality at work.

    Alex: “Shhhh Alex, don’t talk about that.”
    Alex: “Ok, Alex.”

    Speaking of Century, I noticed Mayer of Arabia bailed on commenting yesterday. Or maybe he just bailed, and bailed, and bailed…

    Thread Hijack!

    I just got my Spring AND Fall Brass Bell in the mail. Woody Boat Heaven. I’m set for the next couple of days reading.

    I now return you to your regularly scheduled WB.

      Correction Spring and Summer issues. Just so happy I can’t think straight.

    Alex…you got your comment this morning.

    My advice (read: warning) regarding Mr. Holmes is 1) Keep your wife away from him (that won’t be easy, women find him irresistible) and 2) DO NOT challenge him to a scotch drinking contest!

    Have fun…wish I could be there.

    Thanks Mike and when the misses sneaks out tomorrow afternoon with a flight bag, I’ll be smiling.

    It’s going to be a FUN time at ABC. Everyone is invited. and much to Lou’s cringe, we are giving away a 1955 Coronado as the door prize! Giddy Up!

    got to catch a flight……and a stewardess…

    I met Thomas Holmes at Lake Arrowhead last year. What a nice guy and a wealth of century information.
