What Season Is Your Classic Boat?


Just adding to the pile of reasons to own more than one boat. Yesterday, I was looking out there and the leaves are kinda starting to change and the way the sun sits lower creates a definite feeling of fall. I was looking at Stinky… Not a metaphor by the way for those of you new here. Anyway, I was looking at her cause I could have just plopped her in the water and gone stink’n but her color pallet is all wrong for the fall colors.

mmmm, one is fall one is summer

So this of course sparked an idea for a story. Is your pastel colored boat ride for fall? And with that said is your dark green boat right for spring and summer?


Part of the fun of owning a classic Woody Boat is the setting she is in, and becoming part of the scene. By the way, varnish is like black, its always in style. So, if you have made the bold choice to lets say own a dark blue boat. You may consider accessorizing with some other boats. Maybe every time your wife Imelda buys a pair of shoes, you get a boat. SEE! you now have some more ammo to go buy another boat. Call your barn a Closet. Who cares, you have another woody boat..

Summer and Spring and all year in Florida.


Hurricane season! And defiantly Fall

Fall! And 1976 and July 4th weekend


SUMMER, July 4th


You can accessorize to the season.

Add is car like objects and it gets wonky!

    Unfortunately, we don’t have 4 boating seasons here! My “Fall” boat was winterized yesterday evening and will go into hibernation in a few hours. Temps hit 34 Friday night, and a freeze can now hit anytime with short notice.

    To truly extend the season, more than proper color, I would need a closed cooling setup with antifreeze or a quick draining outboard. Or a winter home further South. Much further south, like New Zealand maybe.

    I have a ‘60 Cavalier (Matt’s ski girl photo is the cover of that brochure) for cruising season and a ‘72 Martinique for ski season. Those seasons frequently occur in the same day during boating season.

    Living 4 hours away from our summer home in the off season means early to bed. I’ll have to live vicariously this fall through all of your beautiful Fall ride pics. Please keep them coming!

    Frankly, our boat is like an all season radial tire….always on, always getting you where you want to go in all seasons, safe and dependable.

    Cabin is closed for the season. Dock has been taken out. Almost all boats are winterized, Except for one. Wasn’t it Jan and Dean who sang” Gotta take that one last ride”.
