    From all of us who can’t seem to keep our own thumbs out of the shot, congratulations to everyone involved in this outstanding accomplishment. Shaun, your eye for style and beauty should be insured by Hagerty!

    Without revealing unnecessary personal details about the girl, can you give more information about the shot?

    I always thought these ad competetions were for commercial media. Congratulations on finding a competitive niche for hobby publications !

    I don’t want to see any more of Shaun’s work. I just want to keep staring at this one. Each time it pops up in the header I get a little stutter in my breastbone…………………..

      Cliff, I’ll take up the challenge…

      “Stop it. Cut it out. I have a glandular problem.”

      That’ll be 60 dollars.

          Cliff, I just read the slogan for the cranky lady ad. The ad was for Old Spice:

          “Spray goodbye to boyhood. Smellcome to manhood.”

          That makes the proximity to the Sean + WoodyBoater + Rabbit ad even funnier.

    Clearly though, there is a “woodies for boobies” factor that the judges considered. Nice going.

    Publication in “CA” or “PRINT” Magazine is a BIG DEAL to those in the design and visual art world.

    Congrats to all those involved!

    Happy to contribute to the Woody Boater cause.

    (And just wait to see what we put together here in Minnesota for the ACBS International in 2015. It’s going to be cool. And the destination is amazing.)

    I am glad for you guys, but excited for me because I just bought our next Lyman, another 18 foot outboard,8th from the last one made.
    Wood boat madness. Whaaaaa Hoooo dont tell my boatress!

    Matt, Very Nice! keep it up as this type of woody boat exposure can help the hobby . Any one can buy a fiberglass boat with a different color stripe and interior. But only a few select gentlemen or gentlewoman can own an exclusive and rare original wood boat

      Alex says:

      Steve, that’s what they told me. But I bought one anyway. What’s it Groucho Marx said? “Please accept my resignation. I don’t want to belong to any club that would accept me as a member.”

    David says:

    Can’t we all just agree to make this the “Official Header of Woody Boater,” and then we can all see it everyday and be done with it.

    Probably crash your server though, just like Woody Connection so might be a problem.

    Congrats on the award.

    Shawn’s portforlio shows a great composition eye. Assume that Continental is in Montana but it sure reminds me of Sebago Lake Maine
