Bring Sun Screen!
Are you ready? No? Me either. One would think with 5, FIVE boats one would be ready. Stinky is getting over a winter cough.. Wont start. I am sure it’s something dumb. Won’t even crank now. Yes Battery is fine. WECATCHEM is headed North for a refresh, The Cavalier is still in limbo, And I aint bringing Sweet Pea, would have to have left last year… and an hr.. So? Boats? There are enough around here to make something happen. So, in celebration of the big 10 days countdown.. Photos of Dora over the years. Ahhhh, Bask in the heat of it all.
The Dora canal with Woody Gal, and I think? That’s Larry!

Come as you are!
We will have a week of fun Lake Dora stuff as we countdown! WOOOHOOOO!
Maybe next year. Enjoy!
Hard to beat a trip to Lake Dora!
(I think Hamster took the Party Barge pic)
Doesn’t it “stink” that can’t even get Stinky to turn over! And what a “gas” it would be if you got Stinky running for the show! My suggestion is that you should “Jimmy” with the electrical connections!
Enough puns for this morning. Good Luck Matt!
And you talk about old outboards being difficult…
WOO HOO!! 10 days of freedom. Sleep all day and howl all night. Wait a minute, I already do that. I hear there will be green beer soon, I’m ready for that!!
Not too late to change your plans and join us!
John in Va.
I am just chompin at the bits to hit the road early this Thursday morning, for a long weekend with my son Dan’s family in Charleston, S.C. We will do some boating there on his Whaler, and a lot of eating at all those great Charleston restaurants.
Then Wednesday I hit the road onto Taravers.
No boat so with me this trip, so I am STILL looking to hook up with somebody for the Friday ride over to the Picnic.
It’s been a long, cold winter here in West Michigan, and I am ready to be …”On the road again”.
I like to think of it as only 375 days until the 2020 show.
Wait….WECATCHEM is getting a refresh? Didn’t you just do a refresh of some sort just last year??
That kinda stinks with Stinky. I don’t mothball Zoomer or put her to bed for the winter. I try at least once a month to put her butt in the water at the ramp, start her up, let her run for awhile and even engage the prop at idle just to keep everything up and running. Come Spring, there are no surprises.
Maybe it’s bad luck to name your motor….
Fun pictures….and always fun times! We, too, are already in “get ready” mode! Rather grateful we can leave here before the sunrise and be there in time for a late lunch! Bill and I were 32 years old our first year there….yikes!
Oh what fun! Will miss all of you…I’m headed to the sunny warmth of Austin to visit Cousin Larry’s daughter and family! I’ll be thinkin’ about y’all going boating!
Is there something happening at Lake Dora? Looking forward to Great Folks and New Friends.
Cool pictures …. looks fun.
