What a week this has been, to be honest some of my thoughts have been blown to bits. And I am truly thankful for that. After all, you are Woody Boater and we want to make sure we reflect the general gist of the passion. And of course stick a poker in the eye of it every now and then. Todays topic came up in one of the many…MANY comments regarding Resto Mods.. A spin off debate ensuewd.. In sewed, In Sued.. Ok, some folks started debating off topic. But the topic of Resto Mods was a good idea. So.. Are they OK? There are of course two Points of view. One of course is , make the boat the way you want it and have fun in it. New engine, your interior, maybe some tunes.. Just like the car world.. OR, What the hell are you doing Mr selfish pants. trashing a classic boat for your ego.. No one owns these anymore, you rent them for future Generations to see, feel and understand. One can only truly understand why Reed and Prince screws were invented until you install 3000 flat head screws on a boat. Or now you know why things are Varnished Over and what that means. Or one can only understand how fun woody boating is until you can smell the back pressure of a flat head.
The point is here. Some boats are worth saving and some not so much.. Or is that even selfish? Some of our beloved boats are driven by fashion.. 40 years ago was a U22 a collectable boat worth saving? Anyway.. I know its Saturday and half of you are out crying in the barn over your now covered boat.. So we will let the other half speak.
