There is something very touching and Zen like about taking your boat for one last ride of the year. Sure we will be out on the water through December here. But not in WECATCHEM. She is done. I will also add that her Varnish is way way over due for a facelift. We have milked two Summers out of a 10 year old varnish job and it shows. There are countless dings, dents and little oppsies on her that are no longer charming or “Patina Perfect” they have are getting narley and a little wonky looking. So we took her out for a short ride, about an hr out into the bay and other areas and just puttered her back into her boathouse. Her next run will be to the ramp and her resting spot on her trailer. She then will be transported up to Katzs Marina were we will bore you to no end with updates on her progress. Just think, nude shots of WECATCHEM to warm you up for the winter. You will be able to give me crap at Lake Dora in March about it no longer being “prerestoic”! It was time. And we have Stinky to keep the Prerestoric flame alive. She is Done. No more work on her cosmetics. Here is the Last Ride moment captured!
