A Week Of Classic Boat Bliss!

The 1950’s crabbing skiff and vintage wood sunfish almost done!

I know for many of the pros out there, spending a week in the shop sanding an varnishing sounds NOT like a holiday. But for me, working in the shop with load music and the sound of sanding and shop vacs going is pure heaven. My skiff and one of the Sunfish’s that have yet to be finished from last years Christmas holiday. They are close now, trying to make room for the Whaler, now home in Falls Church ready for the shop. Now if you will excuse me, there is a varnish brush waiting for me!

The perfect 1970 Boston Whaler ready for her refresh. This will be her first refresh varnish in her lifetime!

    Merry Christmas Matt from the about to get snowed in Michigan boaters……hope you and yours have a great holiday……..thanks for your dedication to the hobby and promoting the “life Style” of an era. In this day of instant gratification…..Woody’s on a lake with no agenda is a blessing most people miss…….funny how crazy people get smacking their Iphones when their app doesnt instantly appear, etc. Life is to savored and moments cherished. Remember it’s not the number of breathes you take during your life but the moments that “Take your breathe away”! Thanks for being YOU my friend…..
