Sorry for the shortage of stories, bad internet and to many things to shoot. Around 5 ish tomorrow we should be able to start loading in the fun. In the meantime enjoy a nice new header and some smiles.
I think I could smile a lot better (just like these people on the dock) if I could find a GOOD WAX to protect my Greavette!
Sorry, small rant….
The in-laws were leaving
I think we have a winner!!!
I wake up every morning to enjoy your header images with smiles located somewhere and even the occasional short stories-you guys rock!
Im happy I have a whole 6 hrs today to actually work on my boat!
Perhaps it is the gas girls arriving with a Bell’s delivery?
This past weekend was great. After the 9:00 PM boat ride on Torch-see the photos-Chad had fun. Saturday we got up for the photo shoot at 9:00 AM and went out early since Torch was rough. Got out there with Matt and Tammy and it was blowing 15-20 with 3 footers. Now 3 foot is not too bad for a 22 foot boat but when they want you to dance around a photo boat and get as close as you can to get some action shots it can get interesting. We all got wet-but I think they got some good shots.
Sat. the boat show went well but the wind was still there. After the show we all went on a slow cruise through Clam Lake and ended up back at the marina to pull out. I looked at the wind and thought it may take some time to get the boats out so Tammy and I went out into Torch and beat our way down to the south end to the sand bar and then went into Torch River and cruised almost to the end. We came back-not as rough-pulled the boat about 6:00PM and drove home. Torch Lake is one of the beautiful lakes in the world. What do you think Matt?
It is a very nice lake but the surrounding scenery is too flat to win top honors. Can’t quite stand up to Lac Annecy, one of my favs.
Oh, you meant the other Matt?
I did the same thing. After the Great Clam River cruise (so many locals on their docks waving to us) I thought it was time for a little “Lyman Tyme” out in the Big Water. I was right behind Russ as we cut across Torch to the west shore at 25+ mph. and then headed South.
Since I had a sick wife back at the hotel, I made my run a little shorter, but still had one of those runs you will remember one cold winter day, and walk around with a smile.
Ronnie was feeling better Sunday, so we jumped in the Lyman at 10 a.m. and ran down the Torch River all the way to the Elk Rapids Dam!!! Got back the Marina and pulled the boat out around 4p.m. Torch Lake was FLAT AS GLASS!!!5
I had a great time on Torch Lake. The show was well attended and very well organized, and all for a great cause. Thanks to Rick Thie and the countless volunteers who made it such an enjoyable event. I will definitely return!
And thanks Russ & Tammy for the thrill ride.
I’ll second what chad said….
A great picture of you not at 50 MPH but maybe more like 35 MPH. Still a good run. Carla missed out.
After a few Manhattans, 35mph feels like 50mph
Matt Smith is the hardest working man in Woody Boaterville. He’s do what ever it takes to get the shot
HA, it was insane. I was tip towing around to keep my head.. and camera above wayer. It was worth it. This header says it all.
Thankfully once in a while he’s get his props…
Well deserved for both you and Texx.
and that was a pretty fast shutter speed to catch the exhaust in mid “burble”.
