The Y-Art Sale Spontaneous Road Trip
I will start my story today with a text message from Wayne Bomb at 7AM “”Here’s a thought: Let’s NOT Go To Algonac Today! ” Like most crazyness, it all starts on ebay. And as Greg said yesterday, if it involves Art and I, its bound to be double insane. Well, it is all true, and yes I am going to milk this like I own a Dairy Farm.
Okay back to the photo. See it? I did, and I reached out to the seller feller, and asked about it!
So I reached out and no response. Which I expected. BUT, the boat is on Harsens Island, and well. I know someone that may know someone and so on. So reached out to Art. Hey do you know this boat? And well. Of course not only did Art know the boat, but the people that had owned it, and not got a hold of the seller feller. WHO TURNS OUT used to mow Arts grass as a kid. DO NOT MESS WITH THE WOODY BOATER NETWORK! We will find you! now of course I get a text from Kent Armstrong.
“Hi Matt, it’s Kent Armstrong. I’m up at Reedville, Michigan visiting Art, yes that Art. Following are some photos of the aforementioned Art retrieving the Chris-Craft duffle.”
Art and I starting talking about it all, and its clearly not worth a road trip. BUT Art mentions he is having a Yard Sale and clearing out a ton of old boat stuff.. And well.. One thing leads to another and well. Before I know it, I am in Ohio at a McDonads, getting a Hamburger with Wayne..
And so we made it there for the pre yard sale, now known as the Y-Art sale. And have a truck full of stuff for the railway and possibly several more stories this week.
STAY TUNED FOR THE STUFF! TRUST ME! ITS WORTH IT. ALSO STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES FROM CLAYTON FROM KENT O. SMITH, AND THEN LAPKIN DOES TAHOE.
Art is da man! Didn’t you get a quick ride on Molly-O?
STOP THE PRESSES……The Y-ART sale is Aug 26 and 27th 9 to 6
And yes we are ALL insane.
There is a fiberglass Dory in Birmingham Michigan for sale on a trailer. It could follow you home too.
Saw that boat on eBay at what appeared to be decent price but not many details stated. I have too many other projects here later in life to add one more big one, but I like the lines of the semi enclosed cruisers. Saw that duffel as well and thought it looked too good to be from the 50’s.
Like I said earlier WTF!!
Does AL have a zipper collection?
