First, I would like to say you all do an amazing job. It takes special skills to navigate around the politics of owners and clubs. I honestly don’t know how you do it. And don’t listen to the trouble makers out there who say judges play favorites. I mean, we all know you all are my favorite.
Now regarding Sweet Pea. I know all you have to look at is photos. But “trust me” she is flawless. I even sourced the original foundry for the metal in her new fasteners. Yup. She has 20 coats of varnish.. Over time…. and her paint is NOS paint from an original vat of paint in a hazardous chemical storage area. Oh for sure. I have lead poisoning to prove it.
In fact we dragged the original guy who painted her out of a nursing home and duck taped a paintbrush to his one arm. And told him he was still at work. Which worked. We fed him a Twinkie and Bologna sandwich for Supper, which is really lunch but at 90 years old. I am just rolling with it.
BTW, the Twinkie was left over from the late 70’s and still in her original fridge. The full circle of life. now in Ray Rays belly or diapers. Ray Ray got his knick name from going deaf from a rouge plank wack in the head. Hey Ray? Ray? Ray, Ray.. And so Raymond got a new name.
So as you judge Sweet Pea just keep in mind..She belongs to the Boatress. And no one messes with the Boatress. She will rip you a new one if she does not win an award. I really don’t care if she wins Best Trawler, or Best family connection? Oh yea, Mike Green you got some serious competition now! Wait.. is Mike a Judge. CRAP!
Sweet Pea and WECATCHEM are in the show. History has been made
