How many times have you heard someone say, “I love wood boats, but they scare me”? This past two weeks of Sweet Pea painting I think I heard that once a day. Really? Whats there to be afraid of? paint? repair? ending up owning a railway? Well, okay, maybe there is some truth in all that. BUT, and here is the big Birtha But Boogie BUT!
Once you meet some other foolish boaters like yourself, not being alone helps. Because in each of us has a tad bit of useless information but together may actually have a good one. And if you want to take it to another level, join your local ACBS chapter? Or start one in your area. That way you have other idiots around when you do something dumb, and here is the best part. You have someone else to blame. And here is the even better part. Its just a wood boat and you can repair it.
And if none of this scars you off, here’s what will. You think that Pontoon boat or Plastic piece of Ship will be around 100 years from now? You think there will be folks passionate about them? Ya! NO!
