I really thought our last gasp was going to be a few weeks ago, but no, we were able to push the envelope here in So Cal, up at 5000 ft until last weekend. A clear crisp 60 degrees, not another boat on the entire lake, so we took our last spin meanwhile getting prepped to take the 22’ out for a long winters nap. I always take inventory of all boat contents. A little shtick about boat obsessions…and a good way to find the champagne corks and a few ceiling board screws rolling around the deck
Above is a pic of our favorite boat BLING, the ever controversial and well commented upon Mermaid Bumpers. We get constant thumbs up from true Woody Boater fans but way more from the fiberglass (think Tupperware) pontoon-party barge–head banger-girls gone wild-boaters on our topless mermaid beauties. Even the dog has the hot’s for these babes, and we thought he was “fixed”! Maybe he is just waiting for the “Mermaids Out” command to spring to. A fine first mate at that.
I am sure that you all have a zillion great exclusive boat stories but here is one of mine. The Captain (when allowed to skipper my boat…always has a panic attack as we careen like a full speed bumper car into the dock) “Mermaids OUT!” he shrieks no matter how many times I have told him it’s handled well in advance…but I think its boating turrets!
Hence…a lovely astute guest upon the Wood has truly picked up on this repeated order and as a thank you gesture sent us these great Tee’s.
Isn’t this truly the joy of boating having a lot of “inside jokes”!
Love to hear about your boat bling and inside jokes.
