Texx, Take A Bow.


Texx out doing what he does! Shooting boats on a sunny day

Today’s story is a huge shout out to Texx, who has over the past two weeks amazed us all with fantastic stories and coverage like no other of Muskoka. Texx has shot gigabytes of images and spent hours crafting amazing stories to all our readers enjoyment. So, today, we thought it would be great to send Texx a bow of sorts.

Thats some kinda cool boat there Texx

In the comment section post a fun pic or drawing of your bow. Now they may all look the same to many, but it will be fun to see, really how diverse all our bows really are. And a great way to thank Texx for all the wonderful reporting. So today Texx, its all of us doing the reporting, you get to sit back and take or look at… a bow or two or 20..

    Great job Texx. Here’s one over the bow of Tiger Lily heading to the Old Club down the South Channel. I’m sure you remember that view!

      That looks like a dealer power upgrade for a dippy. I don’t think any of them came with 5 cylinders from the factory.

    Thanks Texx for all you do for the classic boating community.
    I have a perfect pair of bows, if I can figure out how to send them.

    Great working with you on the Muskoka shoot, Texx. I have a new respect of how much work goes on behind the lens to get those pictures.

    I agree with seeing how hard it is to prepare for a photo shoot: to get the boats in the proper positions, lighting, running angle, etc, etc. more down time than most would think. I have had the pleasure of being on both ends of Texx and Matts photo shoots over the years, and learned a lot from them regarding these issues like were to run your boat, how far way to be, angles, wave jumpin, (and how to almost loose a wife!)
    And it gets rough out there with all the boat waves; how they keep their cameras steady with those big heavy lens, and still get clear, crisp pictures, is another amazement to me. Ever try to keep a level horizon while shoot a picture on a rockin boat???
    Here’s a little Plastic “BOW” to ya, Texx, now go home and hug yours…

    What a whirlwind tour. Hope Texx has time to reflect and actually remember where he was and what he did. Great job.

    Thanks for kind words (and bows) everyone. It was my pleasure. These stories were made possible by our viewers and fellow Woody Boaters around the country who invite us into their homes, cabins, cottages, museums, boat houses, boats, lakes and private facilities to share the magic. Special thanks to them.

    It’s the people that make this hobby so wonderful.

    A well deserved day of recognition for our friend Texx. That was quite a two week whirlwind tour and it was fun to read along. Good luck getting the bugs washed off the front bumper.
