I will start my story today with a text message from Wayne Bomb at 7AM “”Here’s a thought: Let’s NOT Go To Algonac Today! ” Like most crazyness, it all starts on ebay. And as Greg said yesterday, if it involves Art and I, its bound to be double insane. Well, it is all true, and yes I am going to milk this like I own a Dairy Farm.
Okay back to the photo. See it? I did, and I reached out to the seller feller, and asked about it!
So I reached out and no response. Which I expected. BUT, the boat is on Harsens Island, and well. I know someone that may know someone and so on. So reached out to Art. Hey do you know this boat? And well. Of course not only did Art know the boat, but the people that had owned it, and not got a hold of the seller feller. WHO TURNS OUT used to mow Arts grass as a kid. DO NOT MESS WITH THE WOODY BOATER NETWORK! We will find you! now of course I get a text from Kent Armstrong.
“Hi Matt, it’s Kent Armstrong. I’m up at Reedville, Michigan visiting Art, yes that Art. Following are some photos of the aforementioned Art retrieving the Chris-Craft duffle.”
Art and I starting talking about it all, and its clearly not worth a road trip. BUT Art mentions he is having a Yard Sale and clearing out a ton of old boat stuff.. And well.. One thing leads to another and well. Before I know it, I am in Ohio at a McDonads, getting a Hamburger with Wayne..
And so we made it there for the pre yard sale, now known as the Y-Art sale. And have a truck full of stuff for the railway and possibly several more stories this week.
STAY TUNED FOR THE STUFF! TRUST ME! ITS WORTH IT. ALSO STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES FROM CLAYTON FROM KENT O. SMITH, AND THEN LAPKIN DOES TAHOE.
