Hell ya! Go Stinky go, spew your stink in the drink! Boatress Photo
Yesterday turned out to be a spectacular day here in Reedville Virginia in the 70’s. Fellow Woody Boater and pal Clif Aimes came buy and helped me install new points and other stuff on Stinky. By the way those old small distributors are very tricky. Yikes. I also through in a new bilge pump so we could not worry if she takes on too much water. The good news is we got her running and she is still running a tad rough, but who cares, its nice out and we have all winter to make her run smooth.
We got her to the dock. NO WATER in the bilge. OK maybe a drop or two-ish
Right now time is tick’n. Lets GO! The Boatress took the wheel of WECATCHEM for these shots.
Past my favorite boat house
OK, Clif was def chill’n behind the wheel, of an unknown situation
She is look’n good – The plan was to get here out for a photo shoot.
Clif at the helm, heck ya! Runn’n OK ish
Heading out to the Great Wicomico
Maybe the photo shoot is the trip to the photo shoot
More tak’n it easy!
Then we stopped and tried a couple shots.
Lookn great. But we aint hunt’n.
Not the best location. So I hopped in and tried to take her out further.
THAT IS ONE SMALL BOAT! Boatress Photo
OK, thats better. Boatress photo
For the record, this little stinker is a BLAST TO DRIVE! Boatress Photo
OK, the water is not as flat as I thought and the light SUCKS!
Reverse, no forward, now reverse. Get me to my camera
Woohooo! Funny, these boats look large until you see a person next to them. photo The Boatress
Then we set her adrift and took the glamor shots that we will of course over use because its all we have.
Sides done, bottom close, we may leave the deck and interior rough? Name on transom is going to be Aluminum next week.
Flags a fly’n
She looks better than she smells
We set her adrift and just went around in a circle.
This is from the other side as a reference. Towards the sun. Ugh. But gave a cool look.
Lots of history in the area, On land and water
Perfect day, perfect time, and best of all, she didn’t sink or break down.
Did you have a great last gasp weekend? Send in your photos. Or I will have to show more Stinky shots. OK, that just sounds strange.
Also a huge shout out to your official last gasp sponsor Hagerty Marine Insurance, who reminds us all that half of all claims happen out of the water. is your policy updated?
