Morning boat rides. mmmmmmm

Here we go, one step closer to production, the testing. Does it hold up on a boat? Fit the vibe and part of the experience. Yes, I think. We have only one issue that happens in testing. Ya.. The steam is a blue haze. Blow-by? Bad rings, or just what happens when you mix coffee and oil? Either way, it does add a certain sumth’n sumth’n. Now here is the larger question. $20ish each. UGh, They could be 17 each but handing out change of 3 bucks at the tent would be a nightmare

 OPTION 1 – Full oil can look – Or?

Good TIL THE LAST PLOP! For printing reasons this may be the cleanest

They cost a small COVID inflation amount to produce. These will be the taller version, and we are also planning on the classic ones we made before. I am trying like hell to keep the prices down. Trust me this is no profit center.  The great news is many of the T’s We have in stock are pre covid stuff and will be priced that way. Everyone wins. But at Lake Dora. We need to clean out the back room for new designs.

Shirt Updates!

And yes, LIFE IN THE PAST lane is a no brainer. Being done. Still reworking that design. Stay Tuned! Ships getting real!

Working on the type, maybe a different boat. Colors! pastels, I will say I hate white shirts…until I am outside.

A little color change

    I do like the simple design, and the green shirt goes well with the mug.

    $20 is steep for a mug, but if it holds up as well as the old ones I doubt there will be any complaining. I use this one every day and am very happy with it!

      Being from Buffalo option #1 is the only choice for the mug. Downtown Buffalo, NY is in the right background of the photo.

      • Carl Coronado

        Definitely #1 full can. Will be a big seller in Buffalo. I’ll take several. GO BILLS!

  2. Greg Lewandowski

    It all looks good. Agree with you on color vs. white shirts.

  3. ART

    I like option # 1.

    Will you have some of the yellow coffee varnish mugs available at Mt Dora?

  4. Jim Staib

    I like the first Duplex but it has been re-poped in cans, shirts, signs etc. As for shirts I like darker ones as lighter ones are disposable for slobs like me.

  5. Bobby Boat

    Put me down for 2, Maybe you should have a pre manufacturing discount & payment up front.
    Send me an invoice.

  6. Rick

    Definitely option #1 and white shirts for me are also disposable, and they don’t hide my beer gut.

  7. Reddog

    I d like to get option l mug. Also past lane on a colored shirt. I kinda have the same problem as Rick.

  8. Kevin Fitzke

    I think option 2 on the coffee mug looks the cleanest from a design standpoint. I like the contrast better in the white t-shirt. Perhaps going with a light tan color shirt and 90% dark blue screen print might be a good compromise?

  9. Cliff

    I like a wider mug because you can put a pint container right in it and then the handle keeps your hand from getting cold. Put the lid back on and back in the freezer. Mug is ready for coffee in the morning.

    Wondering how you could “commemorate” the effect that Covid has had on our hobby and events… A “Cancelled by Covid” series of shirts/mugs ? 🙂 I have all sorts of wacko images in my head… The SARS Covid “spiky tennis ball” consuming a runabout? or… no… wait Ill leave the ideas to the real creatives out there….
    Hopefully,… This will all be a memory in a few years and we”ll all be able to look back and reminisce on how it messed with our bliss and how we adapted and pressed on… $20 for a mug that can remind us of our passion is nothing considering how much we all spend on stuff! Put a few away and the kids can sell on EBAY 50 years from now and they can get big bucks… . I like the first design of the mug…


    Perhaps consider ” 2 fer ” to save on making change for both shirts and mugs….

  12. Steve Anderson from Michigan

    I agree with most of this. I like the 1st cup, the green Tshirts, and you can sell the pair as a set.
    Also, how about $20 cash, $17 via Venmo?

  13. Terry H

    $20 per mug, 10% to a local charity from the woody boat community. Think of the milking..

      I;d nominate Great Lakes Boat Building School if you’re looking for a worthy place.
