Bring Your Summer On!
Still freezing your aft off out , up and over there? Not here, no sir re man/mam. Here in Woodyboaterville its always 72 and sunny, light breeze and flat waters. All our stomachs are flat and kids respectful. OK, OK, forget the little snot heads, but here in Woodyboaterville, gas is still 25 cents a gallon, TV is only 3 channels and social media is going over to your pals cottage by boat for a game of monopoly…So screw the Polar Vortex, get out your speedo, and lime green Crocs, we’re going woody boating! Post your best summer pics today, lets show the world how warm it really is today!
So post your own, keep them under 1 mg or they wont load and do the MATH!
LETS GO BOATING!
Didn’t mfine say something recently about taking 3 or 4 people at once.
Let’s take a ride around Harsens Island.
Since I am usually driving, not photographing, my phone is always short of wood boat pictures. Here is a summer shot of the kids plastic boating as a consolation prize. My Michigan flag is getting pretty faded, and I still don’t have a black Sons Of Varnish flag.
Those damn blue Michigan flags will fade on you every time. I’ll send you a green one so you can proudly display the REAL flag of Michigan.
That would be much appreciated. I find the green and white ones burn great!
Just the way I like it!
Nice shot for the header. Thanks Texx and Matt
Granddaughter Cadence, driving her namesake. Canyon Lake TX
Here’s to the summer of 1998, riding in wooden venetian limousines in northern Italy!
Getting my friend’s kids an early start as Woody Boaters on Lake Hopatcong last summer. Followed by ice cream, a perfect summer day.
6:30 am start to a northern Michigan July morning, headed to the Cruise for the Cure.
That’s Awesome! Jon your missing all the cold weather up here, the high of 5 yesterday.
That is a beautiful photo!!
You can hear the blub blub….. can’t you? Woodies are made for mornings like this.
That photo is header worthy if ever there was one. Beautiful.
A minute or two earlier crossing in front of the rising sun.
A bevy of beauties!
River running at Buffalo show with new friends. 20 minutes late we had blue skies.
A BIG highlight for us was was the ACBS 2012 100 Mile cruise (Big cruise for a big cause) in the Muskokas alongside the RMS Segwun, Wenonah II and a very large fleet of woodies!
This was a great cruise. We joined in from Gravenhurst and did the entire route to the end. Circled both the Winona and the Seguin a couple of times and headed back to our slip on Muskoka. What a great day
Looks like I butchered the spelling of the Segwun and Wenonah II. That’s what a Texan gets for trying to speak Canadian!
Love today’s laid back header photo Texx. Such natural light. It’s pretty how the white sided boats are never “white.” They really play with neighboring colors.
The colors, the lights………give the White Out back to your secretary 🙂
P.s. it’s warm enough today to vent the CPES fumes.
Dora canal in March.
Woody Boaterville sounds like Lake Woebegone where all the women are beautiful and all the children ( are warm) and above average.
Hate to tell you but even with all your wishful thinking, it is still not hot here in North Florida.
Wilson, get that fixed before the end of March! We’ll all be expecting Woodyboaterville weather by then…
Enjoying Lake Minnetonka with my son home on college break!
This is the way at Coeur d A.lene
August 2013 ACBS Glacier Lakes Pewaukee Lake show.
Vintage Switzer craft fun !!!
Taking a cool dip and a cool sip on a nice sand bar while boating on the Mississippi near Quincy, IL.
Tahoe – Riva moment!
The Dead River just below Lake Eustus, March 2013.
Opening Day of Boating season in Seattle 2012, first weekend in May. The theme was “Portholes to Paradise”!
Teaching my son, aka Captain Nic, to drive a 19 ft Chris Craft Racer “Happy Days”.
Coming home this summer from southern CA with 3 Baby Gars and 1 Hackercraft , all Grey pattern boats mind you. So needless we didn’t think it was necessary to stop at the inspection site in the middle of the desert. They pulled us over to have us return to the inspection station, informed us that is was a $350 ticket. After inspection they did not ticket us. Nevertheless, words to the wise, never pass by a boat inspection station, even if the boat has not seen water since the 1950’s!
Seriously? What exactly are they looking for in the inspection? I can’t imagine there are too many regulations on an un-registered, non-powered, pile of lumber.
Just another lazy day…with a wooden boat traffic jam during ‘rush hour’ @ Riverside Grocery on Harsens Island, MI!
That is one of the coolest photos of Harsens Island I have ever seen. Any chance on me getting a copy of it?
I wish it was mine to give- here’s a link to their facebook page…lotsa boats (and apparently very good food to feed your crew)!
In Sacramento CA we are praying for winter to come. All of our rain comes between October and March. This year we have had nothing. Folsom Lake is at 18% and Tahoe will be low next summer…
This pacture was taken at Garwood Pier, Northshore Lake Tahoe, July 2005
A trio of Thoroughbreds in the Buffalo harbor.
A marina of Woody’s in Buffalo. Probably will not find too many places like this anymore. Photo was taken this past summer.
Another great Tahoe sun set.
Easy going at one of the smaller lakes near Amsterdam.
Nice day for a river run!
Summer in Coeur d’Alene in the 40’s often involved a speed boat thrill ride.
Shot is taken in front of the Cd’A city beach of the “Fire Chief” a 1939 Yandt step hydro built for local businessman Kip Paulsen.
Wish we could find that boat today and relive that experience!!
… ahhh, class on glass!!!!
Kitsap Lake in Bremerton, WA.
Relaxing in the warm Florida sunshine – St. Johns River Cruise 2013.
This is nephew John Ross (age 9) trying to pull 20′ Greavette back to dock – testing the method in case heroics were required. Alas, wind against the boat proved too strong for our hero, and we had to resort to normal engine power. Lake Chatuge, near Hiawassee, GA. June 2013.
Beautiful summer sky today over St. Michaels MD and Tall Paul is cutting a nice wake!
Yes, let’s go. Left, 1970. Right, 1968. Totally different experiences. Wonderful to have a choice and not lose either way.
…until one does lose, that is.
summer seems like a long time ago…
Alex got me reminiscing about Les Cheneaux. Summer picnic
we even found treasure and saw a pirate! a memorable day for sure.
Heading out to chase a Hacker! (Craft that is)
Thanks Alex. The best part about today’s header shot is that it was not planned, we simply snapped it as we were cruising around Hessel on a Tuesday afternoon. I remember the expressions on their faces as we passed by, wondering why we were photographing them.
A common site in the area (as you know).
First ride on our “new” 1960 Century Resorter, Grand Traverse Bay, Lake Michigan. Doesn’t get much better than this!
Chuck is correct – we better get some winter weather and fast. Most of the ski resorts here in Oregon have no snow. And that snowpack makes for a better boating summer….
Tubing with the kids after a healthy winter…..
And I hope what this upcoming summer will NOT look like….
This is not summer, but it was a day in Fall
Ahhh Summer on Bay Lake with my bride of 32 years in our 55 Coronado
Late to the party here – last day at Mahogany & Merlot 2013 shot during the parade of boats. Later that afternoon “Sindbad” came out of the water for the season…
