We thought this may be a good time for some house keeping. First. THE STORE IS OPEN! Yes finally after months of a broken store we have an amazing new store. thanks to fellow Woody Boater Alan Arrighi of Action Screen Print. So it all stays in the family. Shop local I always say. We have marked down the Sons of Varnish shirts since they are old inventory and now have beefed up the new designs. Buy now, buy often.
A brief update on the explosive population growth of Woodyboaterville. Over the past month we have slammed all readership records, readership is up over 20% this year from last year. We are trying some new things and its working faster than expected. Also if you have not visited our facebook page, please do and make sure to LIKE US there. We do about three updates there a day.
To our Email residents….While many of you come to WoodyBoater.com daily. Some are getting the exclusive Woody Boater stories via email only. You may not know this, BUT, There is a web site behind those emails. That’s right, you can comment on the web site, there is a live calender from the ACBS no less. And the top ten conversations on the Chris Craft Antique Boat Clubs #1 Classic boat forum Boat Buzz are right here as well. Lots of vetted great suppliers and services, like Hagerty Marine Insurance, or Chrome work with Superior Chrome Plating. Heck even a place that can finance your new dream. And web sites with those very dream boats for sale! Any part of a restoration is there. It’s all here in one place. The best part though, is the ability to comment. that’s right, there are a mess of others like you commenting and putting pictures on the comments. All you need is a degree from MIT to work out the math problem. Its a spam filter. But will keep your brain young.
Regarding the Donate button, The Donate button has been moved to the ABOUT us section of the site, it’s there in the area talking about sponsorship and how you can help support Woody Boater so we can stay subscription free. Why Move it? The donations were very good and beyond helpful, but only when we asked. Which turned us into a telethon type thing, which felt strange to be honest. So we took it off the home page and moved it. We will move it back during yearly fund raising efforts. If you contributed, THANKYOU! Your donations are being used in many ways. Readership growth, marketing, and technology. You can also contribute by supporting our sponsors who support all of us. Later this year we will do an annual report of how its all working. The good news is that this year for the first time in our history, we may break even regarding hard costs. Wooohooo!
Thanks for your brief attention, now back to the boat show chaos. Thanks again, and may the varnish gods bless you with a dry dust free day!
