Yo, hey Mr Jersey Weather God, we here in Jersey got an offer you cant refuse. Youz take that rain stuff ova there. Keep it south, north, we don’t care. Just not here on Saturday.

A little adjustment here and there. Perfect! The Trusty W is back!

Come here, ya you. Here is a little something for your troubles. Got that Mr Weather God. You just forgetaboutit? kapeesh?  If the weatha starts dumping on the show, well, lets just say, it won’t be appreciated. OK. You got that Vinny, Danny, Two Shoes, Flathead, yeah and you Pauly. NO RAIN. Got it!

So there ya have it, we have called in some favors and even though there might be rain on the East Coast, we won’t have any on the lake. We have an understanding. So come on. Come all and bring Sun Screen. You know what I am talkn about?

Can’t wait to slide back at the helm with the Boatress and just take in it all.

    Wecatchum looks beautiful. Stinky looks like Stinky. We are going to be dealing with some rainy weather here in Algonac this morning. Looks good for later today and tomorrow. Good weather luck out east and have a great weekend!

    I always Love watching the whole process, but there is nothing better than seeing them on the water, out and about running around the lakes and rivers.

    Wecatchem is absolutely stunning in pictures and Im sure better in person, Im jealous, what a great boat. Hope the weather is good for everyone.

    Gorgeous, and a 25′ Sportsman is so worth it Matt!

    One thing though. Stop winding that clock. It should always read 5:00 pm. Cheers.

    Wow, WECATHUM looks gorgeous, hope to see her up close at Hopatcong. Keep working that weather challenge.

    Yeah, boat looks just great sitting back in the water – my heart rate certainly elevated when i opened today’s header!
    Will miss Algonac and my Harsens Island this weekend, although look forward to the great pictures you all share. Thanks to everyone for the stories, tales, jokes and pictures!

    Ok Matt, I’ll do this favor for you…….but in the future, and that time may never come, I may ask YOU for a favor and you can not refuse. Now kiss my ring as a show of respect.

    Looks like great fun at both places but if the weather turns bad come on down to Florida…Sun is out this morning and it looks like Cindy is fading into oblivion.

    WECATHUM Looks beautiful!! I am sure that it runs and handles as good as it looks. Don’t worry about the weather, you woodyboaters are going to the shows anyway. I like a lot of others can’t wait to see the pics. Happy and Safe Boating to all this weekend.
