    Too easy…………….The deck scoop / vent of of Thayer IV!!
    Do I get a shirt?!

    You all can go home now.. Nothing happening here. Just crickets and me.. Just sitting here.. All ready for some banter and THANKS TO TOM, we will have to talk about our kids again.

    I know what it is and I am not going to bother to tell you. I will say that it is upside down as is the question. I think you need something a little more scarce. What is this boat seems to be harder than what is this boat part. Especially the ones where you do not know the answer. You may alsowhat to try bodies of water and boating destinations. As for prizes I enjoyed my pack of non;exsistant woodyboater weiners, or something like that.

    Man oh man. Tough crowd this morning. This part has been done right and was painted back with bilge paint as was on the boat when it was found. The detail to preserve thayer IV 1460 is insane! When it gets to Lake dora for the grand premire of her and mariah you will be amazed..

    Speaking of over, I think Alex has put an end to the location search for the 2013 blowout. You can forget about all the discussion about lakes and boating history, luxery accommodations and what not. Alex played the trump card, Bells brewery. Time for the rest of us to lay down our cards ‘cus that hand can’t be beat.

    Oh hell, that was a short contest. Well here is a bad video to fill up the next 3 minutes of your time. And I do like Alex’s idea of microbreweries ,also Kentucky is definitely doable from here. The water probably warms up faster down there than MI, especially if the idea is to do it early in the season. Might even be able to get some of my family to meet me there from TN.

      OK, someone has to tell me how to imbed a video so I don’t fill this thread with 400 malformed posts trying to figure it out through trial and error.

      Oh and while I am asking for stuff, an webstore to buy Sons of Varnish shirts and flags and other woodyboater wear would be nice.


      • Rick

        I just posted the link, Matt embedded it. I tried in the past and failed.

        • m-fine

          My name is also Matt so you would think that would be good for something around here, like a shirt or video embedding privaledges, but apparently not.

          Oh well, back to dreaming about Bell’s beer.

    I have a back-up plan… If it’s not to be in Michigan, I can bring a Sportsman-load of Bells Beer with me. Just gotta protect it from the sun and keep the tongue weight at 500 lbs.

    Anybody know anything about interstate transport of alcohol laws?

    Of course, who would ever suspect a wooden boat would be used to transport alcohol…?

      Ya, don’t get caught! Let me know if you need help. Loaded up and truckin!

    Love the Whirlwinds instead of jetskis header.

    I am redoing one of my whirlwinds today…bottom paint….hope the rain holds off…

    John in Va.

    Whirlwinds are hands down 200% more fun that a JEt Ski, and after 3 years, still worth what you paid for it. Its a no brainer. Unless you have no brain.. Then you get a jet ski.

    hey my calender says 18 days until Spring and itsl already looking good here in Michigan… my neopreme wadders ready to put the docks in soon as the ice melts……Weather in the 40’s this week and next…..hey time flys when you are reading Woody Boater

  11. RiverRat

    Rick. You have a wandering mind. So many questions so little time. Nice new episode of WoodyBoater sopa opera.

  12. Tom

    I love the Woody Boater soap opera’s.

    Just 14 days until race boat show in Tavares.

    Seeing that they won’t let me bring REAL beer from Canada on the plane, what is the beer of choice for Captains offering rides in Tavares?

    • Jim Frechette

      Negro Modelo, the best of the Mexican varieties. Maybe reason enough to hold the event in Texas. Very good boating in the spring and fall. 83 today!

    I’m qualified to weigh in neutrally on this trans-border beer issues because I was born and raised in Canada before moving to the States and becoming a U.S. Citizen in my 30s. Canadian beer is fine stuff alright. But in the last few decades, the U.S. has developed some fine national brews (Sam Adams comes to mind) and many, many fantastic local brews and brew pubs. The days of Canadians mocking U.S. beer as “light” mainly because it was 1% less alcohol are long outmoded.

    He said, as he cracked open a 10% alc. Bell’s “Hopslam” to commence the weekend.

      AHA! I’ve got a Dogfish Head 120 IPA, AND it was a gift so I didn’t have to pay the ridiculous price.
