A Special Note To The Tahoe Judges. There Are Judges? Right?
First, I would like to say you all do an amazing job. It takes special skills to navigate around the politics of owners and clubs. I honestly don’t know how you do it. And don’t listen to the trouble makers out there who say judges play favorites. I mean, we all know you all are my favorite.
Now regarding Sweet Pea. I know all you have to look at is photos. But “trust me” she is flawless. I even sourced the original foundry for the metal in her new fasteners. Yup. She has 20 coats of varnish.. Over time…. and her paint is NOS paint from an original vat of paint in a hazardous chemical storage area. Oh for sure. I have lead poisoning to prove it.
In fact we dragged the original guy who painted her out of a nursing home and duck taped a paintbrush to his one arm. And told him he was still at work. Which worked. We fed him a Twinkie and Bologna sandwich for Supper, which is really lunch but at 90 years old. I am just rolling with it.
BTW, the Twinkie was left over from the late 70’s and still in her original fridge. The full circle of life. now in Ray Rays belly or diapers. Ray Ray got his knick name from going deaf from a rouge plank wack in the head. Hey Ray? Ray? Ray, Ray.. And so Raymond got a new name.
So as you judge Sweet Pea just keep in mind..She belongs to the Boatress. And no one messes with the Boatress. She will rip you a new one if she does not win an award. I really don’t care if she wins Best Trawler, or Best family connection? Oh yea, Mike Green you got some serious competition now! Wait.. is Mike a Judge. CRAP!
HERE IS THE LINK TO THE BIG VIRTUAL SHOW.
Sweet Pea and WECATCHEM are in the show. History has been made
How funny it would be for the WoodyBoater army to all login and vote for SweetPea as peoples choice. How many read this blog everyday? Hmmmm Is this foreign meddling in an election? Dont know any Russian, and Im not sure we would want to endure the investigations 🙂 Would be up there with raising the WB flag at the ACBS HQ! I would note that there is a bit of green paint that dripped down one of the rear cabin window channels on the port side of Sweet Pea….BUT it was the original paint,.soooo…
Well there is Andrew in New Zealand but he’ll probably be asleep when we vote on this side of the world. But I recall there have been some comments from Europe over the years, soooo.
You might have to rename SweetPea to
SweetPeaMcSweetFace tho if you won
Come on – – Sweet Pea needs a slow and smooth jaw dropping promotional drone video like Thunderbird – – You can do it – – We’re waiting – –
Matt, I don’t think a single award glass candy dish is worth all this groveling. You can just go to Alibaba and order a couple hundred of them with whatever logos and text you would like. Why win best trawler 2020 when you can have best in show for 75 straight years?
No judging this year Matt, just peoples choice.
Well if this isn’t trolling I don’t know what is…. oh wait I meant trawling, yeah that’s it.
Sweet Pee has my vote
Matt you are a whore…………………….justsaying
yes I am. Vote often
Are glass boats allowed at North America’s Premiere (Virtual) Wooden Boat Show?
Talk about pre-mature, voting doesn’t begin until August 22. So I mailed in my ballot.
Plenty of time to mail it again, and again, and……….
Great header photo today Matt.
thanks jeff, was a fluke. The light this time of year is amazing.
If Sweat Pea doesn’t win your header should. Sunset through the pilot house door with that great sky in the background. The golden glow with the setting sun on the helm station is amazing.
Going to the show site I thought, well this is lame. Just one picture of each entry. I know they are big pictures butttt. Then I scrolled down and there ya go, all the shots and data. Jeez, I almost missed it all. Maybe I’m getting too old for this.
