The First Official Photo Shoot In Over A Year. Yip Yap Portraits.


Let’s do this!

I am getting to old for this ship! Those are the words I spoke to myself after riding in Yip Yap for 30 minutes. Good god. Fun? Yes, exhilarating? Yes! But after I got done, I couldn’t think straight for an hr. Oh, and had to pee like a race horse. It’s not the beating, it’s just all of it. Wind, worrying about if the transom is going to fall off, and you can feel every ripple in the water. And yet, I will go back, and back again.

Slow and steady! You just park and shoot. Mother nature and a good driver do all the work. Oh and a good assistant

Now there is a ton of shots, and I didn’t send myself any captions, so I will make them up as I go? Some were shot by the Berlin Bureau, and some by Bruiser. Who by the way, also had to pee when it was over.

12 ft of pure bladder pounding fun

Checking the bilge pump. She has a slight bladder problem. We all do by this age

Brace yourself

Love afternoon light

Ripping across the Great Wicomico

That engine paint nailed the look

The small Woody Boater red flag sets off the Chesapeake Green hull perfectly

A classic look

At this point, my son gave up and had to pee. So I took the helm with Mr B… Who LOVED IT! Kinda.

Okay, lets try this.

Mr B and Me!

Oh he wants to drive

mr B and the helm. BTW, no squirrels!

Yip Yap, and mr B and me

Slow and blind

Lets go home now, okay Mr B, okay!

    Yes, Great Whirlwind shots! The transformation of the look by painting that motor is perfect! Are you selling WB burgees? I also need to get some WB Tshirts to rock at this summers Boat Shows and classic car meets…

    That green bottom goes so well with the stained wood of the Whirlwind but does anyone else think the one star burgee reminds them of the USSR flag, just missing the hammer and sickle?

    You should consider a bright colored life jacket for Mr B just in case. Water temperatures in Alaska are never more than 42-3 degrees so we all wear them just in case. You’re SOL after 3-4 minutes without one and hypothermic with one when someone drags you out.
