About two days ago I got a call from Fellow Woody Boater and pal Seth Katz of Katz’s marina, he said, so your famous now? I thought, why yes, I am the Woody Boater HA! Cue the crickets…… No.. Seth informed me that Suzy, and Suzy and Karen Harrison were on the cover of Classic Boating magazine. I spit out my coffee. What? What? Yup, Suzy is on the cover. Our beloved mahogany barge and gas pit, are on the cover of this latest issue of Classic Boating. I don’t know why this is so exciting. I mean, she is plastered all over the web. She is even been made into fine art . Why is this some sort of coronation. So I thought..
Like Jethro, I dug deep into my 6th grade edumacation brain and thought, Why, what the hell? As Seth put it, you have a cover boat my friend! I suppose Seth should know what that means. He has a ton of cover boats.. several tons to be more precise. (We bought the beauty from Seth last summer.. And he had refinished her right before Dora.)
Why does being on the cover matter? It matters because Classic Boating magazine is the premiere publication when it comes to featuring the best of the best out there in the classic boat universe. They are not daily news, or up to date anything. They are about beautiful photos and stories of fantastic boats. All featured in a simple timeless style. I think of Classic Boating as getting a new classic boat book 4 times a year. I also love the fact that i have every issue in my book case at the river and spend hours reading. It’s funny how we here at Woody Boater sometimes will think we have found some sort of treasure, only to find out that 5 years ago Classic Boating featured that boat or person. But to be on a cover? What were they thinking? I suppose two beautiful women in a perfect wood boat out on stunning Lake Dora in the early morning light, is a no brainer. Note, my fat double chinned mug ain’t even a mile within that shot. I may be ugly, but I aint dumb.. I got a 6th grade education!
If you want to see more and do not have a prescription to Classic Boating Magazine or like me, need to renew your need! They do NOT have a web site. Old School… I respect that.. They do have a facebook page. Click Here, and if you want to get your prescription for a dose of varnish and ink, you can get that here. Tell them Woody Boater sent ya and you will get… Nothing.. But I will feel better that we appreciate the plug on the cover!
