    I HATE today’s header! What went wrong? The hoist appears to be in the same position in both pictures.

    Thank you, Woody Boater. We post new products on Mondays so it will be up on the site later this morning. The design was created by Haynes, publishers of the iconic mechanic’s manuals. It’s a “generic” triple runabout created by their technical illustrators, as unlike with cars and motorcycles they did not have rights to any specific models. It’s part of a series that also includes a vintage Land Cruiser and P-51 Mustang.

    It looks like Patriot skipper Tom Brady sliced and diced his way through the vaunted no-soak bottom of the Seahawk leaving 37 gashes and four 7″ holes. To add insult to injury, just when they got her back to the boathouse in time to save it, one of the Seahawk staff decided to try LOWERING the lift instead of raising it. Obviously it didnt end well.

    Great Header today! That last Seahawk play would have been noted as brilliant and gutsy had it paid off. But, as it went, the Header says it all.

    That Blackie and a few more will be great (and needed) to take to Gull Lake next September. Burrrrr!

    Did you wait till the end to do the header or did you do two just waiting to see which one you were going to use?

    Like Al points out that was a fabulous Zero/Hero play. Had it worked Carol and the Seahawks would have been Hero’s, since it failed people see it as a Zero play. There is no real in between for that kind of call.

    Back to the blanket…although the design is nice, I don’t own a triple. They might want to consider a design a little simpler and right to the point. Red flag with a white star on a navy blue background would look great. I’d certainly buy a couple.

      That is just the kind of blanket I was hoping to see today, just don’t know if there are enough of us willing to buy them to make it profitable for Rabbit.

    Loved the funny header today; especially when I clicked on the story- the Seahawk sank at her dock! NICE…(I’m from Packerland, so…)

    Great ad critique on FB this morning, too, Matt: can we now assume that WoodyBoater-branded fanny packs will soon be available? 😉

    When you go the fairibault website, they have a customs page- where any business can get a design done. They say the design has to be up to quality, and a minimum order- but I don’t know what the number required is.
    Would sure love to see a nice cut way drawing of a Chris craft cruiser, on a blanket.
    Maybe someone at woodyboater can contact them and see what the minimum number would be.
    They could be offered thru woodyboater and boat buzz, or, at minimum, given as prizes at boat shows.
    I bought two pink blankets from them last year- beautiful quality, and they are on my cruiser.
    They are old world fine quality, like the old Chris crafts, and we need to support these industries that require hand-making skills.

    To satisfy the new openness to the modern glass boats, we could have Fairibalt offer blankets made of woven fiberglass, which, I am told, are quite pretty, but itchy to sleep with.
    I am going to contact them and see what their minimum number for a custom design is.
    Maybe we can all become Wooly Boaters.
