If you were in Florida this past weekend you may have met our friend Becky Haynie. She is from Reedville Virgina our home town and the Boatress’s best friend. She has been boating since she was the age of two. Reedville is a working fishing town in Virginia. Now you may wonder why I am making such a bold claim about Becky. Well, there’re a lot of Becky’s out there. And it dawned on us here at Woody Boater that while she was zipping around in a rare Cobra, or Burts Baby Donzi, or a 40 ft Gar Wood, she was here with the Boatress, and together they had a blast.
The best vacation in years as Becky put it. And the Boatress had fun, lots of fun. More fun than ever before, the rides were amazing and made the perfect weekend. Fellow Woody Boater Frank Bauer invited Becky to go out and run his rare Cobra on a fun ride. Dang.. At first she thought it might be to forward, until she met the everyone, understanding how fun and open everyone is in this passion.
We spent time boating, not showing, and went out at night to cool restaurants, and met up with folks at the dock. We made it a fun social weekend rather than a nut and bolt show. And now we have two more passionate folks in the Classic Boat culture thanks to the community. The LaDonne’s, Burt, Lisa, Frank, Jimmy, Karen, Seth, Dave Bortner, all those guys made it fun.
Think for a second. Maybe a bring a friend of your spouse deal. Offer free admission..If your spouse, loved one or best pal would come with you, we could in one invite double the attendance of our events, and one other critical thing. Be a total team player in our purchase disorder of the need to own more than one…or 5 boats. That’s it, it’s that simple. It’s fast win win solution. Thanks Becky!
