As the woody boating season officially opens here in Sunnyland,we thought we would share this wonderful email we just received here at Woody Boater HQ. We receive countless emails from our citizens. many with, boats to sell, buy, feature, what iz it? The list goes on..We love it, but every now and then we get one that stops us in our tracks…. 7 years a go we started this to get the word out about how cool these boats were. Along the way we discovered what the author Shawn B did. That the community is amazing! I know, I know, everyone says that about the community they live and play in. But I have to say, there is something different here with this crazy group. It’s open, fun and all they really want to do is get along and have fun out on the water. Sure there is competition, and rumor crap. But hands down its a great family. Well, fellow Woody Boater Shawn let us know about his classic boat ride engagement last week. If you missed it, click here… The response was as moving as the story its self. The Karma of George Johnson is still strong in the universe. Below is the amazing email that we got, and I felt it was worth sharing. With Shawn’s permission of course..
Matt…I was working on my vacation planning for our special ride and checking out your Woody Boater website when I got distracted by all of the Valentine dedications to your Woody Boater brides! I am now convinced you’re a great group of people and I should switch from my Antique car and truck interests to Wooden boats! Thank you to all the Woody Boaters for their heart felt responses to my post!
Now I’m not sure if it was a coincidence or not but earlier in the day I was reading where a Hot Rodder (in Garage Style Magazine) was fed up with all the negative around the hobby and he parked his Hot Rod in the garage and took up gardening with his wife! I’m not saying I’m going to take that drastic of an approach…but I’m willing to switch up hobbies!
Hessel boat show is REAL close to our new cottage we are building on Squaw Lake, are you planning on making the trip?
Thanks Shawn B
My answer was heck ya! And quickly introduced him to Alex Watson…… maybe to soon?
