Smith Mountain Lake Show Draws Nice Crowd! Ok To Be Specific, A Crowd Of Nice People!
Reporting in from Smith Mountain Lake , Fellow Woody Boater George Blosser sent us some nice pics of the show.. and get this.. captions. OK it wont be as funny, but acurate and even correct spelling.. At least i think its all spelled right.
Thanks George for the fun pics!
Maybe I am just blind, but I don’t see a “dog” in the second picture (Tater). I hope that wasn’t meant as an insult to one of the judges on the dock. Just because the judge deducts 2 points for your incorrect zipper does not mean you should call them a dog on Woodyboater. Just give them a nudge off the dock, or better yet, send them on a road trip with
I did not write the captions.. maybe its Tater and the tots!
LOL, luv me some chrispy tater tots. If tater is the woman with the orange vest, I hope she is not reading this article!
The service dog is behind the hatch and windshield. You can see the guide handle in Art’s left hand. Maybe we need to get you a service dog. LOL
However, I have a blind neighbor who has a guide dog and he is always bugging me to help on one of the boats. When my Riveria was upside down in the shop and I had it rough faired in, I gave him a long board and a wheeled stool, explained what I wanted and put him to work. Because the blind develop heightened senses to help overcome their disability, he did a fantastic job!
I see a whole new generation of woody cruiser kids!
Yeah, but the problem with those pesky youth judges is that the trophy winner is not the boat owner that laid down fifteen coats of perfect varnish but rather the dude that passed out Oreos when the kiddos showed up for the look see.
That’s known as marketing to a target audience, in other words, bribery
I’m with you m-fine – I don’t see a dog, unless we are calling the 3 foot tall-Hagerty-shirt-wearin-standing-behind-the-guy-in-the-hat-holding-onto-the-windshield-where’s-my-damn-Oreo-kid a service dog.
In future pics, I think service animals should be required to wear a Where’s Waldo hat.
Tater is not really Art’s service dog, he is his companion. You see Art runs a suuccesfull business in Fl. Art purchased his boat new as I recall. He used it for many years and it took it’s toll. After becoming unserviceable Art put it in a storage container at his business. Art always talked of pulling the old girl out and having her restored, but never seemed to get around to it, maybe someday. One day Art’s wife was talking to him and said Art you are always talking about getting that old boat fixed up, I think someday is today, so Art pulled the old girl out and sent her off to be restored. Unfortunatly Art’s wife passed, so now you can spot Art and his trusted sidekick at most any show up and down the east coast. And for Paul ” if you see his truck you will always remember that” its alittle overkill for what he tow’s but hey that’s Art. Thus the name ” SOME DAY”
Steam powered? I don’t have one of those. I should get one. My kids would have fun stoking the boiler.
But that fun would wane after the first outing.
Which means I’d be the one stoking the boiler.
You’re already forgetting bribery? Tell them they can toast marshmallows over the fire when you get back to the dock. No s’more though, the chocolate messes up the cushions.
Great point Rick! Better still, I can stop feeding them during boating season, so the only meals they’d get are those they cook themselves over the boiler. It’s foolproof!
Yea Matt you did the right thing. Don’t charge for this.
Just wait, we have something so cool thats will change the hobby! Very excited. Stay tuned
All right, we’re going roto tiller racin”
You figured out how to do a DIY 5200 bottom in just one weekend for less than $100 per foot?
Art’s truck is an F-450 diesel dually to pull his lil ol 19′ Capri but he was in the trucking business so wouldn’t expect anything less. But only one cruiser pic, boo hoo.
sorry I missed this one…
