Just 10 Days! That’s right, you have been waiting all winter for this and now it’s here? We are still getting ready with this years fun and getting the boat ready for the big trip. And the big news today for our fellow Sons Of Varnish, the shirts are ready. But, as usual, they are ONLY available at the show. Owning a Sons Of Varnish shirt is far more than just commerce. You have to have earned it.
Do yo believe in the power of varnish?
Have you spent more money on your boat than its worth?
Is a barn find ratty old pile of sticks more exciting than a new Cobalt boat?
Does the smell of rotten fuel excite you?
Do you look forward to winter so you can work on your woody boat?
Is the idea of sinking secretly excite you?
Water in the bilge is a good thing?
Do you always have a spare trailer hitch in your trunk just in case you see something while out on the road?
Is the sound of a wet flathead exhaust your radio?
Do you always have a spare sparkplug in your tool box?
Do you see 5 gallon buckets as a boating tool?
Does a burger from a 60 year old diner sound like a gourmet meal?
Is 200 miles an afternnon drive if it involves a classic boat?
Do you really give a crap of the difference between a reed and prince and philips head screw?
When you watch old movies, do you look for the old boats?
Do you feel that a good wave is a responsibility not a simple gesture while out on your woody boat?
