Just Great, A Great Gate Debate. WARNING, I Have Issues.
As many of you know, when making a simple decision, I can obsess. Exhibit 1 Zippers, Seat Stuffing, etc. So when it comes to installing a simple F’n gate at the Woody Boater Global HQ, and have a week off this week. Its a ship show. Sorry. Oh, it cant just be a simple gate. Or can it. This is the curse. I am in Gate Hell. Or Hells Gate. Anyway.
I have installed a decretive fence to establish a setting for some plantings. It will all be black. I know, why? Just shut up and roll with me here. So the Gate. At first…….
So that is my hell. One thing, I do like the varnished transom feel. New name? or one of the above? Or am I taking it too far?
So? Now what? Mr B is asking!
Love the transom gate! Use the WB logo. Keep it simple.
Nice looking fence and gate. I didn’t realize the buildings were that far back off the street.
Love the transom look, but don’t leave out the exhaust flange!!!
I agree, Troy. It’s “missing something” without that exhaust.
I just want to warn you, maybe you know already, that you have created a long term maintenance item. Depending on what product you use and when it is applied will either help mitigate the issues or exasperate them. I own a painting company so I see it often. I don’t want to bore the community with the kind of paint talk I’m talking about so you can email or text me directly.
Transom gate with WB logo is perfect
And make sure that you continue to do all of your painting / varnishing above that beautiful tapestry area rug. If it’s me, I would love the challenge, however that would guarantee a major spill.
and I’m sure the wet brush sitting on the can at the end of the table will make a nice spot on the rug
Transom, simple gold numbers. Less is more.
I vote for Woodyboater spelled out with HQ directly under the name, Great idea by the way, Is that a restaurant next door.?
Glad you put a little shape in the bottom of the transom gate. It just wasn’t right without some deadrise… Remember to refinish it every couple years – or take it to Katz… 😊👍🏻
your gonna make it too easy for guys like me to find in, once we are there we tend to hang out past our welcome! (ask the streblow guys).
send some pictures of the inside of the restaurant, want to make sure its wothy enough to take you to lunch there once i get there.
I like the varnished transom. WoodyBoater url as Port of call
Maybe mount a mailbox (of course THAT will be a big decision as to the form that takes) with the 707 address
but.. Im identity confused ….Is 707 Main St Reedville Marine Railway or WoodyBoater HQ? its both, but to the Town its RMR with a fence… Regardless, it all looks great. And you can always make more than one gate
WB@RMR… I want to see what you come up with for a mailbox so I can copy it!
That was supposed to be Reedville Marine Railway as Port of call,..
Maybe ,someday it’ll be as fancy as mine!
I vote dual exhaust for a V8.
Might want to use some tamperproof mounting hardware to prevent it from disappearing in the night. Classy, nice looking stuff like that is very tempting to thieves.
Just think,mr.B! another place to lift your leg.If you can get all the neighborhood dogs to do the same,it’ll be safe!
… did I miss something — where did the old raised deck CC come from?????
Consider the name as the destination you arrive at after you pass through it so you don’t get asked constantly.
Apart from the constant maintenance issues and worries of theft, I would go with something like this, but obviously without the horses but instead a simple image of a transom or just the WB logo.
Simple is always elegant.
Or figure out a way to make it double-sided so you can change it up whenever you want……no one would know if they were coming or going! Not sure how the hardware would work but you could figure it out.
Are you trying to let people know your address? Or that this is Woody boater HQ? Or just trying to be cute? That would determine what I would put on there. Just FYI you got WoodyBoater on your truck and if you have Woodyboater HQ on that fence and I thought you were going to have some sort of sign indicating WoodyBoater HQ – too much branding could be branding overload. But what do I know.
I think you could go with “Pearly Gate”
The transoms gate with dual mufflers and the WoodyBoater is perfect…just sayin’
Wish I would have thought of it!
Wish you had gone for a faded grey unrestored look for the entire fence including the transom gate which should have arcing faded gold lettering “Woody Boater” over the home port “Reedville, Va.”
HA Russ, give it time, it will happen naturally. I tried that, and it kinda needs the rest of the space to be worn out, and now its freshened up.
Does the Railway need it’s own logo (so people know what a marine railway is?) Do you know anybody that owns an AD Agency that could help?
