irene-boat-lift-1For those of us in the South East Hurricane Matthew could not be coming at a worse time. Since we don’t really have that much time left with our Woody Boats, I guess this weekend it’s over. We will be pulling WECATCHEM out of the water on Friday for sure, and chances are that will be it for the season sadly. It’s to bad since this time of year is a perfect time to go boating. I guess each day this week we hope Matthew will be headed out to Sea, but last night he is headed right for us here on The Northern Neck Of Virginia. Yikes!

We are in the center of it all as of last night. BUT. As of this morining according to the weather underground, he appears to be moving, but that can change. Quickly

As of 5 AM.. Thats right Matthew, Stage Right!

No matter what happens, we recomend that you think about your insurance policy with Hagerty. If you live in other states not right now under Matthews target, its a wake up call to get insured for the winter. More claims happen now, not summer.

We encourage you to contact Hagerty at 800-762-2628 to confirm your policy carries the “hurricane protection endorsement”. This coverage includes having your covered boat professionally hauled out of the water at the time a watch/warning is issued for your area. The other option is to hire a qualified individual to navigate your covered boat to a safe harbor. Should your current policy NOT have this protection, we are happy to add at any time throughout the year, INCLUDING NOW! Please give us a call at 800-762-2628. Prayers coming to all of you.

    We had to pull the boats early due to lack of rain, now you face the opposite problem. I guess it is time to start the Sunnyland count down.

    We cancelled our annual October trip to Jekyll Island and will spend the weekend on Lake Lanier in the Shepherd instead.

    With the amount of rain we are expecting it looks like I will be putting my boat in rather than taking it out. 😉

    Hopefully all will be good by next week for the annual Georgetown Wooden Boat Show, if you haven’t been you owe it to your self to attend.

      Since my son Dan lives in Charleston, we have attended the Wooden boat show in Georgetown, in fact, I hauled “Old School” down there to exhibit, back in 2012. This show promotes “hand Crafted vessels” not Production models, so there is a lot of unique things to see. Like a big tent, with 10+ teams of “Boat builders” all competing to build the same pram in the fast time, AND then after lunch they must launch that pram they built and row it across the harbor in a race, and to see if it is sea worthy. Great Spectator fun, plus nice town on the water, with quaint shops for the ladies. This was my youngest granddaughter, Summer, at the wheel during the show.

    Thanks Carla, we have updated the story to put this comment in the top part of the story! Be safe not sorry fellow Woody Boaters.

    Looks like the hurricane warning has been extended to include Lake County, FL which contains Mount Dora, Tavares and the nearby chain of lakes. I thought it a long shot for hurricane force winds to strike that far inland, but perhaps not? Lets hope for the best for all storm afflicted and threatened areas, wherever they may be.
