If you are new to all this, you will notice on the right side of WoodyBoater a set of links from the Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club’s Boat Buzz. Now, to be painfully honest, it aint getting the traffic it used to get. And we know why. FACEBOOK! Now, this is going to sound strange, since when the boat buzz started everyone took shots at it, because it was a bunch of people chiming in on stuff they may or may not know. But compared to facebook, its far from that and folks do help.Facebook is like Home Depot vs dealing with a local small store. Sure its got a ton of stuff, but no one knows how to help. And that is where the Boat buzz is great.
I was on facebook the other day and watched in horror as new people come on and ask questions, and you can see it going bad, fast. There are folks on there trying to help, but many just give crap advice. At least on the Boat Buzz you get fellow boat people jumping in and generally the advice is good. Just don’t ask why your boat wont start. That’s a crap fest of crazy theories.
I was brand new to all this years ago, and restored an entire boat based on insight from the Boat Buzz, and the archives of the Chris Craft Antique Boat Club. Its a very valuable tool that is useless unless its used. So use it. Web forums are a dieing breed sadly these days, but why? Like a good wrench or screw driver, its timeless, good help is timeless. So, click over there, look at the topics and if you are a member, chime in and help make it fun. WHAT? not a member of the Chris Craft Antique Boat Club? Well, if you own a vintage Chris Craft and are not… We can’t help you. And trust us all here, you will need help! According to my wife, I need to belong to all sorts of clubs for my help needs. Is there a Put the Toilet Seat Down club?
HAPPY HEADER DAY! Just hit refresh and see some of the years headers!
