For the record, I am still laughing. What is it about this years batch of Woody boater shows? Seems like we are towing or being towed in, in a bunch of boats these days. And not crappy boats. Nice boats..Like Cobras, and in this case, one of the nations top award winning boats. As we were loading up the boats from a fantastic day both at the boardwalk and on the water, I got a call from fellow Woody boater and barn finder, Don Ploetner, he had run out of gas in Miss Hopatcong, a killer 1961 runabout. Jimmy was waiting to get loaded on the trailer, so we ripped out on the lake to drag Miss Hopatcong home. Half way out, jimmy and I said it at the same time.. “This is the boat ride of the day” the sun was setting, and the water was calm. It was perfect. Jimmys Riviera is running like a sewing machine.. a sewing machine with three carbs.. God, what a sweet ride.. Here are some fun photos of the rescue.. Sorry the shots are slightly blurry. Low light and iphones in a moving boat just don’t mix..
Stay tuned for on the water shots from Saturdays lake Mohawk Event!
