I got it, I got it..
We all know the name Jim Staib, and Jaxon, our regular pooch here on WoodyBoater. Jim is a real go to person when you need something. He has a heart of chrome, and bronze. And most importantly to all of us, has the parts to back up that claim. To quote Jim about his moving. “Took 5 months to move. 29 trips. 17,000 miles. Scrapped 40,000lbs. 3.400lbs of just starters. Actually found a boat I forgot about. Burned it.”
In Case you forgot.
Last night I begged Jim to out to his new 6,000 sq ft barn and grab some photos. Stuff is still in boxes, but he knows where it all is. I know this system well, and it may look crazy, but it works. And I have NEVER been able to not find what I needed from him.
Yup, its right there!
NOW, right now, is a perfect time to get stuff done on your boat. Lets be real here, chances are you may not even go boating for the next month…or two…or? Just yesterday in Maryland they announced recreational boating is a no go in Maryland waters.
That is one cool ass sign. And engine, and oars, and floor
And we all need parts, and the people that are passionate about parts, or parts of people that are part nuts for parts. So without further adoooo. Jims Parts. oh, wait.. Oh never mind.
Closed for visitors, OPEN FOR BUSINESS!
Need a correct part looked up. Jim’s got the books. This is pre internet stuff, and many things are NOT on the internet, but yes they are on Jims Book shelf
Gasket sets, and old cans
EZ Blow horns. Original ones. Every boat should have one of these. Every man cave as well.

Trapped at home and need to get some Woodyness in your life. Dishes. Yup, Woody Dishes. These will look great flying at you from across the room when you bring them home
Jim clearly has a Canoe issue. He has 12 of these. Who in the hell has 12 Canoes? Wait.. Thats kinda cool. Great, now I am looking for old canoes. GD it!

Over 40 Engines.. I see Ventilators here..
Even Jaxon has some goodies here. 1967 Kennedy Fire plug.. Somewhere.. Someone collects these things. maybe even has a website.. Fireplugger.. And no I am not gonna even google that cause I will get lost in a world of Fire plugs and then go over to Pugs, and there goes my day.
PISTONS.. A CRATE OF PISTONS.
I can say this. My equipment does not.
Exhausted yet? Copper pipes.
Lift rings.. Shafts..
Oars. Or more Oars.
Okay its time to hit publish.
