A huge shout out to fellow Woody Boater Todd Weitekamp for reminding us all, it aint over til the fat lady sings the winter blues. Chalk one up for owning an outboard over an inboard. Spontaneous weather surfing.
So what do you do to avoid the shopping BS….boating of course. Decided to call dad and pull the 1954 Penn Yan out of the wood shop for a spin. It was 46 degrees here in Illinois but the sun was out so that made it nice. Like I ever need a reason to go WoodyBoating, but this was a legitimate trip. I bought a 4 blade prop for the little Merc and wanted to see if it was worth it. Super quick and fun to say the least. Nothing better than to share a moment with you dad in a family heirloom.
