Lake Hopatcong Rides! Lets go.. Thats one sweet Higgins

Lips and snouts, Slides and whatever. Today we celebrate the small tid bits of stuff found and well. mash it all together and make some sausage content. Funny how Sausage days have become a fan fave here, and clearly a fun way for me to start a morning.

A new Glass Bottom shot. There should be an entire story on all these images of the same thing

Ya ya, get on the boat, Shut your yap..

Was on ebay and looks real. Note the, the, the? Oh hell I dont know anymore. maybe we need to develop a DNA test for these things. This one feels real. There are tell tale ways to seperate real from fake. Weight, The color of the rust and Patina. Even though they try, its never real.

I have seen this one. for 1942. During the war. Something New for 42. Also isnt the sitting on the bow now ticket worthy?

Seems a rather extreme tooth pull scheme? Poor little Tommy, he now gets a tooth ache everytime he is on a boat.

Marge and LuLu out with there fam!

Little Roger always liked to take the wheel. Until one day he grabbed it and Uncle Roger, spilled his coffee on his lap. Roger Sr, was trying to calm all the Rogers down.. A screaming match was heard over the Ship to shore radio. Roger, Roger, Roger. And so Roger became famous as the first viral recording. Thus becoming the name used for agreeing or the letter R by the Navy. True fact. You read it here on Woody Boater. On The Internet. By Me! On a sausage Day! Roger?

Just another day trying to get the boat going for a day on the water. LIKE NOW! DAD!!!!!

Alt Shaker? Malt Shaker? Walt Shaker? GAVALT Shaker, OY!

No Grandma, you turn this and then stuff happens. Its so loud, you boys arnt going to do anything stupid are you. AND thats the last they saw of the Wilson Boys, until a month ago when Lake Mead dried up.

Yesterday, walked around the corner, and it hit me. Dang, Time just stopped.

    Try Romeo for the letter R. Rodger does mean we received and understand the message

    Those Wilson boys flatbottom v-drive must have blown up because I see absolutely no exhaust pipe exiting the wet manifolds. And probably no life jackets because there’s no storage on those boats. The foredeck is usually sealed with a watertight bulkhead, at least mine is. Their design makes it easy for Grandma to get in and out of but watch that dress as that open driveshaft will grab loose clothing and boom, Grandma’s bloomers are exposed.

      Its a v-drive so motor is “backwards” exhaust goes down then back to/thru transom, shaft covered by the step, all of my flatties were open under bow decks to house the beer coolers…..😎

        Those are cast iron manifolds that are knock offs just like Chris Craft and Flagship (and Barr manufactured as well) that used end caps that could be replaced with an exhaust flange or an exhaust riser, neither of which appears to be there and they had no provision for a down exit. My flatty had over the transom exhaust but also had thru transom flanges if I changed it and a water tight bow bulkhead for strength or floatation or both.

    When you say “was on eBay”
    Does that mean coming to the railway soon!

    My wife and I took the glass bottom boat ride at Catalina Island about 30 years ago! Wonderful day.

    Love the pictures today!
