If You Ever Want To See Your Cushion Again. You Better Read Woody Boater!

Your cushion is crying for you!

Your cushion is crying for you!

So there I am on the highway leaving the big International show and you zip by and out the back flies a green cushion! I know the boat, but I aint talkn..I want to see if you are reading Woody Boater. Oh you know who you are Mr I no longer have a green cushion, Mr Cushionless..

We are going to do a social experiment. If you read Woody Boater on a regular basis you will be rewarded. If you have called some about the loss that read, you will get it back, because they will know. But if you live in a rotary phone I read the newspaper world. Well then, your green cushion is going to go to far away places.

I like its zipper.. mmmmmm Thats a very nice zipper.

I like its zipper.. mmmmmm Thats a very nice zipper.

Your green cushions picture will be plastered all over the internet in comprimising pictures.

Your green cushions picture will be plastered all over the internet in compromising pictures.

So we have it. You want it back, just email us. Info is in the about section.

    I read this in the voice of an Albanian cushion kidnapper/hostage boat guy , but with the Benny Hill theme song in the background. “Good luck”

    Funny, I just winterized the Penn Yan and had to setup a bit of a lost and found.

    If you ever want to see your….

    Mermaid bottle opener
    Chris Craft hat
    Vintage depth finder
    Or 12 pack of moldy tacos

    You better read Woodyboater. Actually, that is idle threat, I am shipping this stuff no matter what.

        I think I left some really fine La Cuizel Mexican dark chocolate in the Penn Yan. Mr Fine, would you kindly return that to me?

          I wasn’t there but I believe someone left some Don Julio Tequila there for me, thank you for being a drop site, please forward.

        I thought the beer was a gift and I drank it. Nice try with the chocolate, I keep track of every square of every Cluizel bar that I buy. Sorry, no tequila, I think Rich Lepping took all the liquor before I arrived Sunday morning.

    WOW! Thanks so much, was sure it was in someones boat house. Yes I’ve been reading you guys since the begin ning!

    I recognized that cushion immediately. I knew Ken would respond and claim it.

    Speaking of Ken MacStephen there is a guy that should definitely be in the Hagerty Hall of Fame . He and his boat have travelled all over North America attending boat shows and providing ample entertainment.

    Well even though we know whose it is can we still see it in compromising positions? Like maybe with a Donzi girl? After all it probably jumped out looking for a little fun. Maybe we should have an official WoodyBoater cushion that travels from show to show with VIP’s derrieres resting upon it? Preferable female.

    Wow. You are one sick dude. Kidnapping a man’s cushion. That’s twisted. Now we know your darker side is just plain inky.

      Break the seal on something from Bell’s Brewery. I would do that with you simultaneously, but Brian Keen (of Antique Boat Center) wiped out our last bottle Saturday night. Believe it was a Two Hearted Ale. The Oberon was gone long ago.

    HA, thats it, Ken you drove by the gas station I was half way through 30 gallons.. I couldnt jump on the road and chase you down. Let me know how you want it returned. OR ELSE! I have dogs Ken.. DOGS.. They like that filling Ken. I can see that cushion all over the back yard in an hour..

    Sheeesh! At least a newspaper doesn’t have popup adds, doesn’t require multiple dextrous finger bangs and you can get to the next section by just moving the ol’ eyeballs. And you can roll it up to swat that dog or kid!

      And, at that fly on the wall (just who is that fly working for?). Would love to be a “fly on the wall” in Matt’s office as he dreams up some of these posts.

      Now we shall see if 7 x three equals 21 in Matt’s math book…

    That cushion belongs to John Gambill he lost it off of his XK22
    on the way to the St. Clair Show in June.
    It was white in June, looks like the 800 miles traveled from Michigan to Minnesota was hard on it. now it’s green and half it’s original size.
    Does he win the award for “The lost Cushion that traveled the furthest to a Boat Show” ?

    Wilson says:

    Agree that MacStephen should be in something else….He’s already a Hall of Famer, and ACBS Founder. As I recall he was around when I got involved in ’81. There must be something else for such stalwart veterans…..I remember when we were having some organizational squables, Ken would always say, “If it isn’t fun don’t do it.”

    I suggest bringing the cushion to Tavares…That way, maybe we get the Mullins to cross Lake George (FL) one more time. I seem to recall one rough crossing on one gallon of gas and three gallons of gin.

    Now if, as Al says 2+1 = 3 we can post.

    Gotta love the roadway. Some of the best things have been snatched up after having fallen off of a truck. Yesterday, I snagged a fancy schmancy set of kitchen towels, still in the bag, but this nice cushion is a better find. Lucky bugger.

    Dick Dow says:

    Let’s see Matt… maybe the cushion should be sent around the world for selfies like the traveling gnome – At the Eiffel Tower, Alex’s dock, Texx’s Garage, Clooney’s honeymoon suite – you get the picture. It could be a special guest next weekend at Mahogany and Merlot – maybe get a ride in an unlimited! 🙂

    red dog says:

    i think dick dow has the best idea. speaking of the math question, does everyone see the same equation in one day?

    • Rick
      Rick says:

      If it is the same equation we could get an elementary school teacher to post the correct answer every morning. Darn
      5 + ? =6 Hmmmmmmm

    Ken MacStephen says:

    I sure appreciate your retrieving it for me. It could be difficult to repay you but a start would be if everyone who reads todays posting calls a friend and suggest watching your sight even ikf on a weekly basia to start. Thanks again, its kind of obvious that I wont need it on the ST Lawrence for a while, I would like to get b4 the dogs!!!

    HA! We could set up a daisy chain delivery system and photograph the poor homeless cushion on her journey home. So anyone headed North? The cushion is in DC..I can get her to new Jersey this weekend.

      Remind Seth he is $40K richer because of me. And I need some of that white original Naugahyde for the trim on my upholstery. I’ll start hounding him now.

        Matt, I’ll be headed up via north Ga/Asheville/Knoxville/I-75 corridor. However, there may be a problem knowing Canadian Customs when they have to determine the duty on a rum soaked cushion coming across the border. You know how they are about bringing alcohol across from the US.

    Here is a picture of R&H a few years ago when I got a ride with Kenny and crew across Lake George FL. I believe that was a 3 beer crossing. I learned from Kenny on the second annual Florida cruise that the boat did not record MPH rather it was DPD (Drinks per Destination).

    • floyd r turbo
      floyd r turbo says:

      If the little sweetheart on the cushion is available for accompaniment, have van, will travel. Actually, I’m headed to Lake Muskoka (again) via Guelph so if Kenny wants his cushion, I can drop it off somewhere between there and Bracebridge, but I haven’t decided what the ransom would be yet. Actually, he paid it off at the Gravenhurst show with peach schnapps shooters with beer chasers. No wonder my pictures of that show were out of focus.
