I am starting to really appreciate analog stuff. Like a simple windup wrist watch. No charging it, no updates, endless notifications. Just wind it up and go. Does it really matter that is dead on time? No. As long as its in the within 5 minutes thing. Its like a what time-ish is it? And it doesn’t require you to respond to it. It TELLS time.. Thats it. Its a one way conversation, and is always there. As long as you wind it up. And best yet, it says OWENS on it. And if your name is OWEN, it’s your time Own, its your time.
You can buy time here on ebay!

    I don’t have an Owens or Chris-Craft watch, but I do have a Snap-on watch where the second hand is a truck going round and round.

    Kind of feels like my life for the last 38 years.

    It’s 5 O’clock somewhere!

      Up here in the ANE the sun goes down so early this time of year that we have to start a little ahead of schedule.

    I just ebay snagged a Whirlwind ad item…a tiny screwdriver…to go with my ebayed Whirlwind SILVER…tie clasp…tiny wood insert in the hull side…I would show you all those gems…but would need to know how to post pics…being an analog guy….whatever that is. That watch is really cool…and reminds me how few Owens boat we see out there today?

    We made TIME to watch an “analog” parade yesterday in St. Michaels, MD. It went to the dogs pretty quickly. Chesapeake Bay Retrievers

    One of dad’s friends had an Owens when I was a child. Photo taken in 1972.

    Getting together with the Ohio Valley ACBS chapter today – have a beer, watch the game & share boat pics, My husband will probably be the only one rooting for Cleveland, in a brewery in Cincinnati!

      Kelly, I hope that yore husband survives rooting for the Browns in the heart of Bengals country. All I can say is HOOOO DEYY !!!

    If the Owens in your photo is the 19 foot model, I have one just like it in the barn in line for restoration. It just needs to wait for the Dunphy Bluewater to get done first.

      The story I remember is that it was titled as a 25′, but was actually 27′. Sounds like you have some great projects in your barn!
