On Golden Creek. Forgotten Photos Of WECATCHEM’s First Family Cruise.
Last week was a bit nuts, and this weekend I had to work at the office. No woodyboating. But durring a break I was able to find some photos from the July 4th weekend of WECATCHEM and her first family run. Dang, that Katz’s Finish is stunning at sunset.
PERFECTION! It was a special spontaneous sunset ride that was flawless light. Dang, Flat water with sunlight dappling through the trees while small flies dance on the water!
AHHHHHHHHH. I will go back to that in my mind this winter for sure.
Thanks to Lynn Gulick and her camera and the my trusty iphone!
A Huge thanks AGAIN! to the good folks at Katzs marina, Graves Plating, Kocian Instruments and VanNess Engineering. The amazing reflection of quality and being a joy to work with is even more clear on a sunset cruise.
The boat looks amazing!
So, is it me, or is there an extra head floating behind the boat passengers in the picture of Scarlet?
Hahahaha! That shot is as it is untouched. It’s Patrick at the helm. Behind the windshield
No reports from the BIG SHOW in Muskoka this past weekend:(:(
Heard there were seven or eight Shepherds there. Maybe next year:)
Someone had to have been there with a camera. Encourage them to send in some photos, with or without descriptions.
We have some stuff from Chris and are expecting more from YNOT, we also have a Sandpoint report
Ruff day on the water
Hmm…Why did I think this was going to be a story about Weecatchem’s first (ie original ownersl) family ?
I wish Wilson, I have tried and tried to the point of being a pain. Hopefully one day. They would be such a treasure!
I can’t wait to meet Wecatchem!
Good to see you USING the boat. I, for one, would be so worried about putting a scratch on her that it would sit in my living room with drool marks all over it constantly wiping them off with a chamois.
Absolutely gorgeous Matt!!! But be careful, if your family gets any bigger you are going to need Evangeline, or a Martinique.
Gorgeous shots, Matt. If I was a better photographer I could’ve gotten similar shots of Rabbit last weekend and over the 4th. It’s been glorious here in Wisconsin/Minnesota cabin country. It’s hard to think of you locked in an office all weekend. But as an ad guy, I know that’s just how it goes and it’s what makes it possible to have these beautiful boats.
The story on Evangeline yesterday got me thinking. That boat is in such a different league than my little Ensign -in fact, I think one leather seat in that magnificent craft is worth more than my entire boat- yet when people see my boat on the water, they don’t know that. To most people, any well restored woody is the most beautiful boat. Think about that…
Saw WECATCHEM at the recent Lake Hopatcong show, just beautiful. But as Rabbit alluded to, even a litter preserved runabout like Sweet Mahogany gets a lot of thumbs up, pretty little boat like comments when I take her out. Nothing like a little wood grain and styles of yesteryear to captured the eye.
