Roy is the one on the left – Photo Eric Frazier

We love the Brass Bell and are trying all kinds of fun ways to work together. Some stories are print worthy and those we save for The Bell, and others. The story of Roy and Judi from Algonac and there special all original Sea Skiff is in the latest Brass Bell, so sorry, you will have to subscribe to the magazine to read about the boat. BUT, we do have the photo series right here, since we are the ones that worked with famed photographer Eric Fraizer to get our new ad series shots done. Now, not to confuse things, yesterday was Bob and Susan, who also were photographed that same week, and we used them in our Ad. Today is Roy and Judi, two completely different couples, yes, Roy and Bob defiantly married above their league. Hey.. just say’n what your think’n.. Maybe it’s the Woody Boats? Yeah! So without further adooo, here are more wonderful shots from the shoot of Roy and Judi.

    One more little plug for our Algonac event. It is again on the sacred ground of the original Chris Chraft plant, the Harbour Club Marina. We will have a blast with great weather over three days, June 24, 25, & 26. Friday and Sunday are on water events with the show on Saturday, concluding with a boat parade on the St. Clair River. There will be great food and friends during a Friday lunch and welcome party, a Saturday evening awards dinner and a Sunday brunch at the Old Club Yacht Club. Barrel backs are the Marque Boat and classic boat rides will be happening during the Saturday show. Check out all the details and register at michacbs.com. We are looking forward to spending a great weekend with all our WoodyBoater friends!

    In 25 years will there be a big argument about which hull number was the main picture boat for Roy-al IV?

    Great shots and nice plug for a great magazine…

    And as an aside the Trade magazines are touting a new 42 Chris Craft Commander to be out in July with bigger ones to follow.

    Amazing interior!

    And the new issue of The Brass Bell is one of the best in years. Besides the above story, there’s the profile of Troy, another poetic ode by Alex Watson and a story on the Dayton Family Chris, which resonates with all of us in Minnesota, considering their influence and contributions to our state. Their vintage family cabin (and log boathouse) on pristine, wild, and massive Lake Vermillion in northern Minnesota is another woody marvel.

    Great photos and story. Cousin Roy showed me how to waterski behind this boat back in the 70’s. We were at one of his Mom and Dad’s great summertime picnics. See you on the River.


    We are so honored to have the ROY-AL-IV featured in Woody Boater. See you guys in Algonac this year, and in Port Huron for the international show in 2018. Roy and Judi
