Over the past 6 months we have been slowly in the process of is the biggest move in Woody Boater history. Way beyond another boat, new server, new camera, a new true permanent global headquarters. Is it scary? HELL YA! But then again, what is life about anyway? NEW ADVENTURES and always putting yourself out there in new ways. And in this case. old ways. in a new way.
Today we can announce we have made the final hurdle and are buying the Reedville Marine Railway here in Reedville VA. In one family since 1906 and in business since the late 1800’s We are talking about an about an acre of waterfront land that is frozen in timeless perfection.
Like a barn find of a barn, and workshops. And best yet, owned by one of the nicest families on the planet. The Butlers have kept the Railway going for over a century in the best way possible. Timeless standards of quality and humanity. You can feel the care, in every scrap of wood. That we have been selecting through for months.
This is a wonderful joy for me personally and I will be able to work from there more and not have to travel so much. And not have to work from my family room. And be able to combine my two passions. The Creative business of marketing, and the history of classic boating, and a wonderful community now both physical and virtual.
Over the next couple months we will be sharing the adventure of discovery, and expansion of WoodyBoater to a network of other physical WoodyBoater network locations as mentioned yesterday in phase 1.
So today, we start the adventure together. Stay tuned for it all. What could possibly go wrong? And yet so perfectly right!
You can imagine the agony of doing this removal of the Riviera which could have been a great one day story. But did not want to announce to early. So you got this.
We have documented the journey so stay tuned for phase 3! Yes there is more!
