Labor Of Love – Happy Labor Day


Love is in the air, and a whiff of rodent poop

As we have been celebrating the countdown to Port Huron, we have had our own little countdown here in Reedville. Getting Stinky back in the water. It’s had its twists and turns, but the good news, is with the help of many, she is in the water and Running! Screaming and a wonderful prop for a photo shoot for a wonderful vintage store called LOWTIMERS.

Batteries charged, and my batteries needed recharging. We set out for a 1/2 hr run that turned into a total tank drain. 3 hrs later and I wanted more. I LOVE THAT LITTLE STINKER!

Right at ya. Thats the Fish factory in the background. Guess how that smells on certain days?

Sporting her new STINKY flag! Custom made by LOWTIMERS with vintage Chainstich machine

Her new used H is a beast! Easy 35mph and thats at 2500RPM, she may need a slight smaller prop. But honestly, she is fine and a wonderful little boat for romantic rides. Like a vintage Jag on a country road. That smells like rat poop.

35 and more to go

The magic of the Chesapeake Bay

Flat water!

She rides very smooth oddly enough

Love is a powerful fuel that can move anything. Including a 1937 Barn find

Ripping along

lots of folks out. Flat waters and tons of waves

Jimmy, Lynn and Scarlet out on the Great Wicomico. What a great Cavalier.

Fast, fast and faster. With a 5.7 Mercruiser in it.

A perfect photo boat as well. Its a perfect boat on so many levels and the inspiration for Buttercup. Everyone should have a Plywoody

More Labor day love!

Happy Labor Day, get out there. Here is a link to LOWTIMERS, vintage clothing and cool curated objects of affordable art. A huge thanks to Model Kelsey Christian and Driver Stunt Man Ham Smith, Jimmy and Lynn.

A cool rest, Scarlet loves to swim in the shallows of the Great Wicomico



Headed back, no wait, lets go here

and here

Headed home

Back at the dock

And on the lift for the night next to her big sister. But not for long!

    It turned out to be a beautiful day at the Lake Vemilion Boat Show. Beautiful boats. Beautiful people.
    Sold a lot of books, too!

    There’s a 1938 Special Racer in the PNW if anyone needs to scratch that itch.

    It looks like a nice riding, fun boat.

    Favorite shot: 35 and More To Go.
    That’s a great looking young couple looking cool in a great looking classic boat. Need more young people into wooden boats.

    The Cavaliers have really grown on me. This growing like affair is largely because of the Termite Terror.
    Such a great boat. Can someone tell me her particulars – length, year, etc. Did they make different configurations?
