Varnish almost dry from this weekend? Hows the gas? Fresh? Interior repairs? Brass and copper polished? Cleaned all the oil out of your bilge? Got all your safety stuff, fresh fire extinguishers, flairs, life jackets, whistle, paddles. How are your “lines”? How’s that dried out bottom doing? Got a stand by bilge pump, and FRESH battery.. 5 gallon ACE bilge bucket? Remember when you took your last gasp, all was tight and things were all worked out from a fun summer of use.. It’s been a long warm winter.. How bout those trailer bearings? packed? Axle, not all rusty? by the way, they rust from the inside! Lights all ready.. Insurance? Did you pay up your policy? Hagerty is ready click here. If you had your classic boat winterized right, it all should be ready. Just a good idea to check it all over.
And now comes the fun part.. The first Spring Dip. That nervous drive to the ramp.. Will she start, run, not sputter out half way down the lake? Did I put in the drain plug? That’s a very common one by the way. Well, when you do this send us shots, stories, whatever… We will have some fun with it all..If your boat sinks, FANTASTIC.. for us.. bad for you.. It’s all part of the fun in Woodyboaterville. Next week will be first dip week starting Monday..You can send us your images via email to [email protected] or [email protected] We will come up with some sort of lame prize.
UPDATE, SPRING DIP WILL BE IN TWO WEEKS. The great northern Woody Boaters have spoken. Send us images if you have already dipped in the water.
