I don’t know why I cant get “The ladies” to take a ride? They all just point and call my boat “cute” ?
Thanks to fellow WoodyBoater Maggi for sending us in what could be…sorry Maggi, the most frustrating report ever. Now, don’t get mad, I mean we get drone footage and on the water shots with $5,000 cameras of amazing boats. And I thought, hey, lets make something out of this that’s fun. I will no doubt get reamed in the comment section for being mean. But it’s very early, and well. This report from the fun good sense of humor..( I hope) .. The So Cal Chapter of the ACBS. Take it away Maggi. Oh wait. no captions either. Woohooo. I get to make them up! And yes, the story starts out OK, but just wait.
Well, this shot has it all. Wieners, Women, Pinups, Woody Boats and a tall ship.
Thanks, we spent a beautiful weekend at Big Bear Lake, in the California high Sierras. The sun was shining and the breeze was blowing.
Wind Blowing, and, and, and? A tug boat? with a sail, and , and, and then there is that huge white ball? Hey, have you met the Little Woody Guy? Back to Maggi.
We had a terrific turn out from the public, too! Our Peoples’ Choice box received over two hundred votes, and numerous additional folks declined to vote, saying they couldn’t pick a favorite. We closed out the day Saturday with a dinner on the patio of Nottingham’s Restaurant, with good food and lots of fun conversation.
The conversation. What a setting.
We also awarded two prizes: Skipper’s Choice went to Tim Vanderveen for his triple cockpit Hackercraft “Dutch Treat.” And the coveted People’s Choice was won by new members Marshall and Jen Guthrie, for their home-built 2017 Glen L Rebel. This is always a fun event, and this year was no exception!
Okay, no photo of Dutch treat. but we got this! Here we go.
I call this, Drying pavement. It’s a statement regarding a previous storm, contrasted by people going about there routine by shopping for Boat Show caps and picking up free Classic Boat Connection Brochures. Hey, work with me here. I am trying.
Okay, phew, a boat. I know it’s turquoise and white. And a bad ass Mercury
And this one is Red! And white, and has a red and white stripe. Just in case you couldn’t see the picture, which you can because you are reading this. Dang!
Anyone? OK, wait one second before you all jump on this. It is period, and I am telling ya , dollars to Doughnuts, ONE day.. Maybe not today, but One day, this will be a collectible cool boat. It’s I think a Calibar1 Custom boat. They have been around since the 80’s which this kinda looks like. Looks like a very early one, which does make it cool, The colors are amazing and very period… Period. You will need your solar eclipse glasses if you drive this though. Put them on before you visit the Calaber1 Website HERE
Cool setting for a show
And a nice Woody. I need a life line here. What does Double E Ticket mean?Okay, Maggi, don’t read the next one.
OK, OK… Sorry Maggi, I am about to go nuts. Like I said. So you stop reading. What the?, you have a triple Barrel back (I think) right there.. See, right there. To the left. And you shoot people and some faded out red plastic turd… AHHHHHHH, and some guy with that sail coming out of his head. There are Woody Boaters moaning all over the world now. Hey! I get to make up the captions. OK, Maggi, you can start reading again.
Cool. Is this the Glen L.
And in two shots, because this boat was to big for one photo.
Thats’ a cool set up. Parking lot fun. I wonder if that Chevy truck is in the show? Hey? Again. There was that Popsicle earlier. One day it will be a classic.
Again. A cobra and a big triple. And… Maggi.. Ugh. Your killing me. But I am sure having fun picking on you!
I, I, Ah, My head is going to explode. There again is a nice set of boats. And.. And… a grill. and red umbrella. Old ratty dock? Anyone?
Well, there ya have it. It was at least fast and live-ish.Kinda. Many of these shots were already on Facebook. Which is even faster. Like fast food, it was fast… But….And all kidding aside, Maggi is a great person with a great sense of humor… I hope. Thanks again to our pals at the So Cal Chapter of the ACBS for sending in the report. Anyone got a photo of Dutch Treat? Without your thumb on the lens?
