New Year, New Day. Slide Show Day!
Thanks to ebay, if you look hard enough you can find all sorts of interesting images of classic boats before they were..well…classic. They were just boats. So if you like any of these slides, they are on ebay. But for the rest of us here, its a slide show. So we will drop the needle on the record player and wait for the beep. There is a flash back.. Along with Ditto sniffing!
So there ya have it. Slide Show Day. Is this a worthy day? None of these are worthy of a story, or maybe they are? Maybe you will see some image from your past? maybe thats you brother digging? Happy New Year!
I don’t think Uncle Morty used a level when he built that dock. Happy New Year with fair skies and flat water to all of WoodyBoaterville!
Looks like the portable docks that were common on the Fox chain of lakes in IL, when we lived there 2005-2011. Ice meant they needed to be removed for the winter.
“…before they were..well…classic. They were just boats.”
I have an old Chapman’s “Piloting Seamanship” and a newer 1970s edition. I love the old edition because all the photo examples are “just boats” of that era, mahoganys, triples, utilities, runabouts–boat porn. The newer edition is all plastic I/O’s, no fun to look at.
Happy New Year Matt and all.
The picture with the U-22,(could be). The guy in the water “gets it”. You just know he’s a Woodyboater!!!
Happy New Year!!
I think the girl in the bikini would like to be in Troys collection. Once again Happy New. Year🎈 how about a WB virtual New Year’s Eve party next year.
Happy New Year Matt and thanks for all your work to make each day a new experience.
Happy New Year everyone!
Hark ! Here it is 12:30 and just getting to Weody Boater…Must have been a great party…Wonder if they dropped that ball on my head ?… Looked outside….Everything a blurr…Then checked weather report..” Clouds, overcast, humidity 95% visibility 50 ft.” Maybe I’m not so bad off after all..
Happy New Year to all !
Happy New Year to all my WoodyyBoater friends. Looking forward to more traveling to classic boat shows this year, as long as I am healthy.
Matt’s comment of how the lack of “improved ramps” was back in the day, I always marveled at this hornets mess depicted in this photo. It had to be very packed sand…
here is another old Launching area photo.
That’s a great Dunphy molded veneer boat with Scott outboard motor in a number of these pics
Photo attached is from the year 1966 with Rhude family and a few fishy. The boat is a 1964 T & T 18 ft. Breakers wood lapstrake outboard obtained in May 1965. Our family still has the boat
Here are a couple of old prints. Postcard of the cottages at the old club at the turn of the 1900s and then a picture these days.
Then one of Algonac area.
Old Club cottages today
Old Algonac picture
Creative, different, good stuff. We need a WoodyBoater slide show like this about once a month.
