From Spring through Fall we are always so excited to see Fridays and the hope of a perfect weekend of flat waters, bright sun and smiles of family and friends to share the joy of a fantastic woody boat ride. But with weekends like this about to face us here in Virginia and most of the country. Cold, damp, snow, wind, the chance of spending time out with your family on a boat is just a memory. BUT! And we are talking a big BUT.
You can still enjoy one of the most rewarding parts of Woody Boating. Going out to the barn/garage and do some over due work on her. Or you can call a woody pal and go over and help them.
Don’t have that ole chum? Get in the car and drive to your local boat place. Trust me, they are as board as you are. The good thing is they are surrounded with Mahogany goodness and in a way, it reminds you of your passion.
OK, check the ACBS calendar and look up shows and seminars. YES, boat shows and Workshops. There are countless indoor boat shows around the country. For example one of the best ones is coming up in Minnesota near the end of January. Wait, no on the 19th WOW, see…Click HERE.
Don’t have a boat shop near you? And your boat is in storage? Do art! That’s right, make a painting, paint boats on your wall, clean up all those photos you took last summer and put them here in the comment section.
OK, you don’t want to that either. Ugh… OK, Go find a can of varnish, open it. And just bask in the smell. until you pass out. Right before you die, you will no doubt hallucinate about something. And possibly it will be about boating, and there ya have it! You are Woody Boating! Inside!
