Scarlet back in the Pre New Bottom days.
Yesterday we had a fun day naming the opposite of Last Gasp Week, which so well captures the essence of one last breath of boating late in the fall. And now we have a new term. SWELL TIME! Thanks to Dick Dow for the name. He wins a pack of frozen Wieners.
Ya! Hey, sorry, Dick, this was an unfortunate coincidence. But for the rest of us we are giggling like 10 year old boys.
This is me in “Just Swell” My first Woody Boat around 2003. And the very first time I had driven it, and one at all.
Awesome little boat.
A cool soaker tank at the older Antique Boat Center location.
Pre Swell! Did you know a 19ft boat can gain about 700lbs of water after swelling.
Might be a good time to get a new 6 Volt bilge pump from Jim Staib. FineWoodBoats.com
This is Wanetta II around 2005. This was Sylvia Pre Restoration. She stayed afloat with two 6 volt bilge pumps.
Not a drop of swelling time needed AFTER
Its that time of year when anything can happen. Because it SWELL TIME!
