Is there a better Woody Boater holiday than the 4th of July. Warm summer nights, Long days and sunshine glistening off a coat of varnish! Your boat has had its shake down cruise, and then the follow up shakedown cruise after fixing the issues. It should all be dialed in.
Family is around, burgers on the grill, and fresh Strawberry Shortcakes for desert. Heck it even ends with a bang, ohhhh, and ahhhhh. What could be better? Not much. It’s as wonderful a feel as that fist feel of Florida Sunshine when arriving at Lake Dora in March.
Or the first site of a flawless Varnish Job, or the sweet rumble of a finely tuned flat head. It all just comes together in a symphony of summer this weekend. Are you ready?
Got your life jackets, tools, and sunscreen ready. Sorry, age and wisdom dictate that all that is wonderful is for your guests.
You my man, or woman are the Dancing Monkey this weekend! Just make sure you stay smiling when your granddaughter smears a milkshake all over the seats. Then starts crying when you say something, starting an argument with with Daughter, that you never where a good father, and that time… Oh brother!
Or the engine stops in the middle of the lake for no reason, or you hit the dock, ya this went to a dark place. But here is one thing. Come February, you will remember all the mess ups and smile. Because its all part of the fun of Woody Boating. Now get out there. And live it up. Before you know it we will be last Gasping!
