The Headers Of Lake Dora 2012
While we are being dumped on with snow on the East coast, we thought it would be fun to show some of the headers from last years big show. This represents the first time of the year that we get to create new images of folks in there boats for the fist time as well. Enjoy! And yes if you click on them they blow up.
This year we have some fun photos already planned, but the shots would be so much better with you in them!
Wow. New record for fastest story ever put together.
Yet it totally achieves the desired effect. As with Pavlov’s dog, pronounced drooling was observed.
You should know, you shot some of the shots.
WAH HOO !
Oh we are getting you there. It may not be this year, but by next year you will be begging for some Dora action.
Lets see, stinky brown water with gators in FL, or crystal clear blue water in HI? Hot Polynesian women in bikinis, or pasty white Canadians like Texx and Paul H. in speedos? Fresh sushi and a pineapple cocktail, or chicken on a stick with a warm bud light?
Perhaps I should reconsider.
I agree Id rather be in Hawaii, but I cant afford either one.
Neither can I!!!!
Great pictures. Great memories from last year.
9 more sleeps until I climb on the big bird south. Then its Raceboat Show, St John’s River Cruise, and Boat Show.
Can’t wait to see old friends and meet new ones.
BTW Matt I can pack my Gold Speedo, if you are looking for a Fat Balding Middle Age guy to model in any of your shots this year.
Who is the skinny guy with the camera?
Yeah, I think I’ll have to pass!
And the pilgrimage begins
Great pic’s from Lake Dora and the St John River Cruise. I sure that I saw may of these last year, however, I always seem to miss a few because of travel, work, etc. These pic’s represent a nice overview of the WoodyBoater activities on Lake Dora for that week.
I don’t always see your blog on a daily basis. I know others have tried to entice you (Matt and Tex) to publish a coffeetable picture book. I have suggestion from the peanut gallery.
Why not run a compilation of the headers once a month? It would be a nice review of the prior month, plus the peanut gallery could vote on our favorites.
We have a ton of fun with the headers and know the folks want them. A book cant happen because they are not high reselution enough. Plus its the magic of tuning in for the day. Sometimes less is more.
GO BERT GO!
While on the subject of Lake Dora, planning to attend but wanted to know, is the show the whole week or just the weekend??
It’s Thur-Sunday with a lot winding down after Saturday night. You will have a great time. I leave early Sunday to head home.
m-fine, I’m waiting for you in Honolulu.
Whaaat? m-fine’s comin’ here? I thought we drove him out of town for good. The second his plane lands, slap him, and send him to Dora where he belongs.
Who do you think you are foolin? 21st century law enforcement is more sexed up…
Hawaiian woody. No V-8. ‘Nuff said.
I could definitely retrofit a small block in there.
Looking for two seats on the Friday Boat cruise and picnic. Anyone that might help us out please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks
You should embroider on a logo and add these to the woody store…
I can’t ever get a break, take the wife to the desert cause she’s tired of boat vacations and what’s setting in the lobby.
I just can’t get away from them.
And the look on my face is a question, and I’ll let you guess what her answer was.
This should have been first pic, What happened???
Quit being a baby and just “BUY IT”!!!!!! You’re wife is just pretending to be tired of your “boat problem”…….
In regards to the problem of (lack of) spring sun tan at Lake Dora – Matt has that covered…
He has ordered in a new high-tech tanning bed that is designed to make you look like you just had a fresh coat of varnish applied. It even has two settings, for either Pre-War or Post-War.
The Pre-War setting leaves you with a satin (non-glare) finish like a early 30’s Gar Wood…
The Post-War setting gives you a traditional glossy Chris-Craft look c/w white pin stripes…
The first 30 minute tanning bed session is complimentary if you buy a Woody Boater tee shirt!
Doesn’t work on hair. I tried it, and came out unrestored. Grey in fact.
My approach to grey hair is to simply be happy that I have a full head of hair to turn grey.
How many boats normally show up for the boat show at lake Dora?
To answer several questions. One, its 3 days long, but you can make an insane fun week of it. St johns etc. And there are around 200-300 boats that show up. Its insane. You will NOT be disapointed
Thanks I want to get some ideas for a boat am working on.and meet folks in the hobby
It is not a hobby, but an incurable mental disease.
other than a small local show this is the big one and folks are here to party and socialize. Stop by the tent there is usualy a small gang of folks there. As to ideas. I hope you dont have ADD. Your eyeballs will bleed. What sort of boat do you have?
Chris craft cutlass 23 foot not really a lake boat look but fun anyway.
What a great stroll down the waterfront, I’d forgotten how good the shots were!
Just got the word, we’re out this year.
Randy is having hip replacement surgery, he’s ready!
Have fun y’all…we’ll be watching!
i had a choice, go to lake dora or buy another boat. i bought the boat. looks like this will be the best year ever.
Hanging around a bunch of old farts in wooden boats or running with a bunch of younger spandex clad women training for a marathon, hmmm. We’ll have to see.
