It’s that time of year when we all focus on the guts we have built up over the cold winter. Well, Fellow Woody Boater Mark Setterholm has decided that he needs to drop some Lbs. Oh, wait, not because he wants to be healthy.. See Mark got himself a Bucket List Riva, and well, being image conscious, observed that , well, only skinny attractive people drive Rivas. So guess what, he wasn’t gonna be the Chub Chub in a Riva. So maybe just maybe there is something in that?
It’s no different than wanting to slim down for a High school reunion, or summer vacation. So this of course invites the next question.
What is the perfect weight for your boat? Do large Sportsman allow you to carry around a little extra blubber? What about a small Racer? Should I loose the Freshman 30 I have been carrying around for 40 years? That little sucker is small, and that 40 lbs is alotta drag. How about A Century? Fat floats! Hey just saying! My gut would make a great life jacket? Cobras? Ya kinda need to look slick in one of those? Maybe some huge side burns on one of them.
So we ask. Do you match your boat? Hey, if not, you know have an excuse to go buy the boat that was built with you in mind!
