About 5 or was it 6 years ago, I sat down in front of my laptop and thought , what the hell, I will just try this. I will publish my daily journey into the passion of classic boating. Just put it out there, what could possibly happen? I thought, hey maybe I will learn something? Well…. That was an understatement of the century…… Chris Craft and Gar Wood! Every time I think I have it all understood, I am reminded of how little I know. The wonder of this passion is that one can never know it all. It’s endless. What is amazing though, is that though this amazing community I never feel alone out there. We all know that owning a Woody Boat is not a one man deal. It really takes a village to live the dream. And that has been the most wonderful surprise of this adventure. Getting to know all of you. I am beyond thankful for all your fun insights, encouragement and humor.

The list goes on and on, aprox 30,000 a year… For the record I am horrible with names. It’s honestly a little overwhelming, but truly heartwarming. To all our Sponsors who have been loyal and supportive beyond my wildest dreams. A HUGE THANK YOU for making this happen. And most importantly…. The Boatress whom with out her support, we would all be lost… literally..
