Sons Of Varnish Move Into Indiana


A special Indiana look. Each location gets a special version.

Watch out Indiana, lock up your Woman’s, Men, Partners, Significant Others, POSSLQ’s, Sheep, whatever floats your boat. The Sons of Varnish are now in your area. And they got some varnishing to do. Not a metaphor, they really like Varnish.. What? You all are sick… The sheep part is for the wool to cover lines so your varnish wont scratch, and the reason you need to lock up your other is to keep the dust down. I swear sometimes you can’t even open your mouth. Can we just move on here.

You can work on your boat with them

A Huge thanks to longtime fellow Woody Boater David Shepler of Moms Mink fame has started the Indiana Chapter of Sons Of Varnish, and he has 50, 49 T Shirts ready to go. Thats all you need to be a member. And they can only be purchased at their show this weekend. Yup. And all the profits go to the local chapter of the ACBS to help with whatever they need it for. Like going to a strip joint.. What? Really? They like to strip boats of old varnish and revarnish them.

Note the brush runs over the lower name patch.

Want to join the gang?

Here is some info on the 2022 ACBS Indiana Chapter 1 day show Saturday July 30th starting 8:00am.

How the show looks

The location.. Good Mexican place there?

Flying in from London?

There will be old stuff there.. No not just people.. Stuff!

And old stuff talking about old stuff. maybe even selling some old stuff.

    Great back story on Mom’s Mink with original owner Jim Lundy a WWII Naval Aviator and longtime Blue Ridge Chapter member. RIP Jim, wish I had known about him being a Navy pilot. That never came up in our conversations at the many shows he attended. Glad to see David Shepler keeping the Garwood’s in such great show condition.
