According to the Antique Boat Shop’s facebook page, Fellow Woody Boater Jeff Funks Antique Boat Shop burned Saturday..today. Morning. Here is the quote from Jeff.
“Disaster! Saturday morning around 4am Jan and I were awakened by a policeman who informed us the shop was on fire. By the time we arrived the building had collapsed, and everything was gone. Everything. Eight boats were lost, as was all our equipment. A complete loss. We were, and are heartbroken…as are our clients and friends for us. Probably an electrical short according to the FD. Now we have to rebuild. Changes are coming, so please bear with us as we recover from this loss. It may be awhile before you see posts. Cross your fingers for us as we work to get back on track.”
We wish and hope Jeff the best and if there is anything we can do, this is the time for the community to come together. We will update as we know more. You can visit The Antique Boat Shops Website here
Below is the news story on the subject from WANE.com channel 15
We did email back and forth with Jeff last night, and he was well insured so that part is a good thing, and a sober reminder that to make sure your insurance is all paid up. We keep telling folks, almost half of all claims happen over the winter. Jeff is a great guy and has a great business. We are keeping this story up today so folks know whats going on.
