As a wonderful gift to the classic boat community, fellow Woody Boaters Dave Bortner from Freedom Boat Service and The Antique Boat Museum have posted audio recordings of past symposiums. Some of these are true classics and given by true experts.
No visuals. Just audio. Now before you think hey, why no visuals? Because if these were shot it would just be footage of the backs of middle aged men’s heads. And well, lets just say audio only is better.
NOW. one thought is. Listen to them in your car while driving. Like a pod cast. Which would be a great way to kill a long ride…and anyone in your car that’s with you. They will all be sleeping after a couple minutes anyway. But you my friend will know more about classic boats than Christopher Columbus Smith and be a better person for it. I bet he didn’t know about 5200 bottoms.. See?
Just think, you can brag at the big family dinner how you heard Terry Feist talking about Cobras, Wilson Wright talking about Racing Runabouts, Gordy Millar on engines, and a panel on finding the right boat with Pete Henkel, Gary Scherb, Wilson Wright, and Wayne Mocksfield. I think they’re pretty interesting, some are timeless, some remind us how much changes over 25 years! Come on. Be that crazy uncle everyone rolls there eyes at but secretly always wants you around. Cause at least you don’t smell like mothballs like Auntie Margret. YA, I went there.
