Bruiser Causes Stir At Chris-Craft Club HQ
If you are a member of the Chris Craft Antique Boat Club, you get the Brass Bell. Still in my book one of the best designed club magazines out there. Up there with the Hot Rod Journal. Bill Basler for sure caused a stir when he redesigned it back in the day. Actually when Woody Boater started. Yes its been that long.
In a way, the CCABC and WoodyBoater are sisters, brothers, siblings. So we here at WoodyBoater are all in trying to provide support. With that is the Boat Buzz forum over in the third column. It feeds the top stories from the Boat Buzz. A great resource for information. Better than Facebook, which is like throwing your info into a garbage disposal.
Anyway, back to the click bait headline today. Turns out a bit of a stir was caused by the Bruiser ad in this latest issue of the Brass bell. “IT’S A DOG”! Not a boat? And a huge spread of an ad? On a dog!
YUP!YIP…BTW, not just any dog, It’s Mr B, Bruiser, And Boozer, Super B, he has many names. But he is 100% Woody Boater! And I wanted to change things up a bit. The original plan was to create a centerfold type ad. That helped make the Brass Bell look great. And hopefully create a smile on folks faces. Including Mr B and Zip, and other creatures that make life fun.
So in honor of causing a stir, here is a PUPDATE on Bruiser.
We were able to capture some of his super powers on video!

OK Matt, where is the pic of the little guy on one of your boats? That’s what we want to see!
Soon. Gotta get the boats in the drink first. WECATCHEM’s engine is in. Fine tuning now, Stinky is ready, YIP YAP needs paint and varnish, The Ski boat is ready, just bit a tad cold, And working on Sweet Pea. He likes that ride.
His first ride!
O to be young again. Some where I turned fat and lazy. Here is my first time being out off leash. I was good. Treat time🐶🍖🍖
Needs more pics from Troy.Some with little doggies too.
It is funny that you say that on this story. Matt has had to field lots of complaints over the years over my photographical choices.
No complaints here
Bruisers looks like a player !
Fluffy paws missed the photo
I think the bruiser pics are cute. I didn’t know there were subliminal messages in your story about Spector, Goldfinger, or whomever hellbent on world domination
I want more videos of Bruiser “busting a move”, perhaps flying into Wecatchem – a little play on words there
Speaking about Chris – Craft.. Below is a nifty LINK about bigger boats being delivered in the 30’s, etc with the owners names and the names of the boats.. Also some follow on re-naming of 2nd or 3rd owners.. Our fellow Chattanooga neighbors offered articles about the 1947 to 1975 Chris Craft factory & dealership around the Dodds ave & 37th st in east Lake. ( That step racer / E- bay auction that mentioned being delivered to Chattanooga in 1941) http://www.shipbuildinghistory.com/shipyards/yachtsmall/chriscraft.htm
Dogs and boats, they go together like peanut butter and… ladies.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WONDERING WHY I JUST KILLED 12 COMMENTS. I decided it wasnt productive and the first comment went against our policy of attacking others. Sorry, normally I would leave it all up since a huge majority were positive, but without the negative comment, lacked any context.
Thanks for dealing with that rage. That attitude is not appropriate for this site.
Yep, Dogs and boats… Life jacket as she sinks like a ham…
Is it windy in here or is just me?
Thanks for sharing with us non members
That look you get when she’s just read George’s comments…
OH Floyd you had to poke the bear didn’t you!
I didn’t mean for my first comment was negative, but it came down anyway.
Hey, you want a piece of me! LOL
“Dogs, Boats and Smoking Chimps.”
Looks like the only primate that got smoked was Curious.
WB – always a hoot !
OK, i’ll try this again. Congrats to you Matt, Bruiser along with the railway. For making it into the Brass Bell. I liked all the above pictures. The ones with dogs bikinis, bears, Kangaroos and cowgirls. Let’s all focus more on Boats and less on things that have nothing to do with a good hard piece of wood👍😃
