On Tuesday night on Maryland Public Television some fellow Woody Boaters ate up some of there 15 minutes of fame on the subject of Classic Boating. Now for those of you not tuning into Maryland Public Television, we have the entire show. You can watch the entire thing, It is PBS, so be warned. It can be a slow but educational watch. But at Minute 17:40 the magic happens.
And whadya know, there is a 25′ Sportsman featured. Ralph Cattaneo and his next dream boat is a 1948 one! We have all been there Ralph! Ralph talks about DNA and all that stuff.
There is some footage used from the Irwin Files including WECATCHEM also a 1948 25 Sportsman. Maybe one day they can meet on the bay and dance the Chesapeake Wake Dance. Ralph and Gerorge, she is here in Reedville if you need measurements or details. She is almost all original.
Also featured is George Hazard of Wooden Boat Restoration in Maryland. George does nice work, and get this, is a nice guy! We talked to George yesterday and there will be a follow up on the restoration later in the year. Cool! This is great exposure for the culture of Classic Boating, and helps folks see that there is a wonderful support system for them if they decide to take the plunge into our wonderful world. Here is the show. Remember 17:40 in the magic happens. Or just click HERE and go to the site.
