Well, just when you think you have seen and heard it all found in the bilge when a classic boat is being restored. Dead rats, snake skins, toys, strange little plastic bolts, and of course missing screws and bolts that you find and wonder where that came off of. But today tops it all. Ready?
A fellow Woody Boater took his newly acquired Sea Skiff to Katzs Marina. Names being withheld BTW. Anyway, while cleaning out the bilge, Allen came upon this box. YES. THIS BOX.
Oh boy. Yup, it’s somebody. As in Some BODY! Or used to be somebodys body. Right there. Now Allen thought. What the? Is this some sort of dumb Woody Boater bury me in my boat thing. STORY HERE. So? Well, upon further careful inspection, it was empty. OH.. Look in the bilge? Nope.
So some calls were made. The box dates 2006. Turns out to be the previous, previous owners boat and they , well, took there pal out for a “Last Ride” and left the box in the boat.
The good news is the box, is being shipped back to the family, and all is well again in Woodyboaterville. And best of all… I have another days story. Its so gonna be a loooong winter.
