Hands up! Give me all your eggs!
We hope you are blessed with fine weather and flat water today. Here in Reedville Virginia we have a wonderful tradition of the Easter Bunny going around town on a wonderful Buyboat called the Elva C. Thanks to the Reedville Fishermens Museum.
The crew could be a tad more excited. HA
And of course what would Easter be without being towed in.
Take a break from it all. My neighbors mower broke down and thar she sits! Makes me laugh everytime I drive by it.
Ohhh to go classic boating in a sea of chocolate wonder.
And a wonderful collection of Easter Egg Colored boats. Katlyen Marsden and her perfect Century Roan

Got an Easter Egg colored boat! Lets see it. Happy Easter and GET OUT THERE!
Lovely Eastery pics, Matt, but it’s Amphicar, not Ampha Car. Triumph Herald engine, yet made in Germany. A real oddball.
Happy Ester made me laugh!
I love how he managed to spehl it Esther when it says Ester right there on the photo!
Happy Easter to all in WoodyBoaterville!

Happy Easter all. Brisket on the smoker, ham in a Sous Vide bath, time to make the tartiflette soon.
No boating until next month, but may have to mow in a week or so, and I have been there with the stranded mower. Broke part of the front suspension so I couldn’t move it for a week until the part came. Bought a heavier duty zero turn to hopefully not repeat that experience.
A festive post on a pastel day. Sorry to say that my friend Mike LeCompte passed away earlier this year. He sold Mellow Yellow a few years back to a fellow who had no idea what he was getting into with regards to classic wood runabouts. (Possibly a subject for an article unto itself.) The boat has appeared (mis represented) for sale by at least one broker since and any noble efforts on my part to correct the mis information regarding the marketing of the boat has not exactly been welcomed.
And life goes on…
Miles, if you know ‘Mellow Yellow’ is available, can you put me in contact with current owner/seller? Thanks.
HAPPY EASTER ! For a real treat, come to Houston on May 4th, and 5th for the Keels and Wheels boat and car show, 300 cars and 100 classic boats. keel-wheels.com
Happy Easter! Two stories related to your random images:
1. Amphi cars: I am an honorary member of the Minneapolis Amphi gang after I saw my friend’s empty and parked amphicar beginning to roll down a boat launch. I ran after it, jumped in and pulled the brake to stop it right before it ran into a car. First and last time I was a hero.
2. Esther Williams: About fifteen years ago I was staying in a hotel in Marina DelRay, CA. My room had a balcony overlooking the pool. I noticed all of these beautiful young women rehearsing a water ballet in the pool. Later I had a beer and watched them perform for Esthers 80th or 90th birthday party. It looked like something out of one of her movies. In the marina they had a few houseboats in display that had her brand on them.
3. My boat is named Rabbit
Looks like a amphicar, but intended for road use only – the 1953 Fiat 1100 ‘Boat Car.’
happy easter great colors
