I was cruising through old pictures this morning looking for photos for a story, and kept coming across all the boats I have loved before. Que Julio Iglesias.. I will spare you the youtube clip.. Aplause now.. Anyway, I was cruising through some of the pictures and kept coming across Sylvia, the real first love Woody boat.
I had lusted after a 19 barrel back for years, and spent 3 years restoring her. She made me happy and crazy from day one. Picking her up in Minnesota in February to driving every weekend 3 hrs each way while she was being restored. All of it. That’s love. So we thought it would be fun to have our fellow Woody Boaters share there first love with others. It may have been your first boat as a kid, your grandfathers boat? Or your first real restoration. How a bout a friends boat. It’s OK to covet another’s Woody Boat by the way!
The list of lust goes on and on for me, , a 1961 Continental hard top? 1958 40 foot Cruiser, 25 sportsman, the little Hydro. Tell the world your love. Ya never know, some ones dream may be to unload there nightmare! Ya know what they say, for every beautiful boat out there , there is some guy sick of putting up with her crap!
