Happy Spray Day!
Yesterday after a day on Zoom The Boatress and I had a much needed boat ride. And it was a tad windy. And choppy. And fun as hell. And so I decided today is SPRAY DAY! A day of fun splish splashing. And hopefully you have some as well. WOOOHOOOO. Throw your coffee on your face.. Okayokay.. Don’t do that.. Just read this in the shower. Phew.. That could have been a mess.
AND NOW AN INTERMISSION! HIT IT JENNIFER! She’s a maniac.
Okay, now back to boats!
Great now I need to dry off. Thanks
Is “Oh boy spray” as bad as it looks?!
The best is when it’s so calm & quiet, that you can hear the spray off your ski falling back into the water behind you. Unfortunately haven’t had one of those days for quite awhile.
Classic dad spray
Classic dad being reminded that he’s not 18 anymore – spray
Chad, you should have only posted the first picture. Nobody else had to know!
VERY kool – fun to see the collection of images. Riva spray on Tahoe is impressive…
Great pics indeed! About halfway through them I started wondering, then started chuckling, and then I thought ‘hey, post what I’m wondering as question. This is the forum to do it! So what the hell here it goes… I am, as many know, a classic (40,s, 50’s, and 60’s) outboard runabout nut, mostly Thompsons. One of the options on those boats back then was windshield wipers, either electric motor powered or hand powered. I have a rather humorous image of someone hand cranking a windshield wiper in some of the above pictures while steering! It did get me thinking… Were wipers an option on the classic Chris Crafts, Centuries, Hackers, etc. of the day?
CC used to put wipers on some of their skiffs, semi-enclosed, and cruisers obviously. My ’56 22′ Sea Skiff had one wiper on the skipper side. Pretty much useless as I never used my bimini top. It had only speed (fast), that just “slapped” the water back and forth across the windshield
Thanks for the windshield wiper insight! Didn’t know you had a Sea Skiff. Lyman had one that looked very much like that. I remember it well because it towed me once! That was a displacement hull. Is yours as well or does she get up on a plane?
Great pictures! Im going out now to make some spray.
Just had to put this one in. Some professional spray !!
There is something to be said about a wall of water coming at you.
It’s all fun and games until someone gets wet…..and then it is just plain fun!
we ‘splish-splash’ on Saturdays……………..mahalo Matt!
When the Wind hits the Wake …
Matt – that is an older Steve Lapkin photo. That is me jumping the waves at Tahoe. I believe it was Don Ayers first Riva ride!
Matt, Ronnie said thanks for the picture of us in our Lyman and NOT showing that picture 5 seconds later, as she took a spill off the engine hatch…
My Riva Junior.
Sandi and Rory getting some splash time in the stern of RUMRUNNER at Lake Dora!
I like Spray Day.
