Welcome ladies and others to the official Hagerty Woody Boater 2012 last gasp week. Today marks the day that we celebrate our last gasp runs of the year. It doesn’t have to be the very last run, but the last memorable one. The one were you sat there in your trusty..or not trusty craft and thought. It just does not get any better than this. This weekend was amazing here in Virginia and was made for such runs. 70 and no wind. Low hanging sun and good pals. We were lucky enough to score a ride on fellow WoodyBoater Jim Schafer’s first run on his latest water Craft. A perfect classic 1960’s Stanford Deadrise.
You may recall we did a story some time back on Stanford Marine Railway. Clarence Stanford was regarded by many as the premiere deadrise builder in the area. And from the looks of this one, you can see why. Its amazing. A nice 2 hour cruise from Kilmarnock Va to Reedville made a perfect ending to boating season on the Bay for us. Unless it warms up again… Send in your shots today.
