On Friday we did a short story about a new program we will now be rolling out so that folks can connect with others out there in Woody Boaterville. Here’s how it all came together. We did the story, long time fellow Woody Boater Dave Anderson took the challenge by the boatress and made some calls. Within an hr or so, The Boatress and her side kick niece, “Woodylishious”, were all ready to go.
Meet Tom Wright, who helped out and gave us all hope that this new concept will work. What is also amazing is that Tom did not even know about Woody Boater and yet helped out! Dang! Tom brought his pal fellow ACBS member Dave Grundies who owns a 1957 Kettenburg Sweet 16 with original Johnson Sea Horse 35.
There is a wonderful ACBS group in the LA, San Diego area, and if you want to meet up with them this weekend coming up is your chance at the Annual Lake Aroowhead show. A fantastic location with a rich history of Woody Boatsness.
Here is some info on “Miss Spent Youth” in Toms own words!
“We have owned Miss Spent Youth since 1979, when we bought her from a retired fireman in Mission Bay. She is a 1958 Century Coronado and was originally powered by a 327 ci Gray with 225 hp.
We repowered her in 1998 with a balanced and blueprinted 350 Chevy rated about 280hp (ding for judging points but great as a user-friendly solution. She’ll do about 50 when the bay is lake-calm but that’s pretty rare. Today was a beautiful day and we took good advantage showing Suzy and Angie around the bay.”
Also Tom added… “We had a great time with the girls and closed out with a couple of Mai Tais at the club. Glad to have met the Boatress and Angie!
Win A T – Shirt ! So here is todays challenge.. We need a fun name for this new effort! A free t shirt to the best name! So chime in with your most fun name. As a reminder here is the concept. We will have a special place on Woody Boater were you can post a trip you are making and if anyone else wants to share the Woody Boater experience? boat rides, Location recommendations, good places to get gas, and a burger.. Like a trip adviser, ambassador, tour guide, or pal to just go boating with!
Thanks to Tom, Dave and Dave for showing us all that this works!
