Keels & Wheels Has An Award No One Wants To Ever Win… And Yet
Fellow Woody Boater Dan Diehl. Overall best of show Keel and Wheels. 1959 Riva Ariston. Which is a huge deal..Diehl… And of course one would want to display this proudly. Maybe in the family room? Bed Room? Garage? Storage bin in the basement. Not me. I would build a massive display. Wait… No.. I would build a new bathroom for it. Maybe a glass wall in the shower.. With only cold water. No hot water.
At first when Marty sent this too me late last night. I thought.. Okay a table shot of people at the rubber chicken dinner.. But .. I woke up this morning… and looked at it more closely.. And this has to be at every boat show. I mean everyone of them. Cause I want to win this award. So.. Congrats Dan, and well. Make the most of it. Remember its not the size of your trophy that counts.
Geeee, I don’t understand what you are talking about Matt.
Looks like fun to me!
This one is for Addie!!
(I know I have used it before, but it is soooo appropriate)
That’s probably the real reason John Deere perfected the plow. He just got old!
Geeee, I don’t understand what you are talking about Matt, small woodie????
Speaking of small woodies, I couldn’t wait any longer for the ice to leave our chain of lakes. Went for a sauna / swim yesterday and guess what? I think that I must have won the Whitefish Chain Smaller Woodie award – I think…….
Not a shower
I’m a grower
Yes, inelegantly named perhaps, but a well deserved award. Our first visit to this show. Those who haven’t been should put it on their list. Lovely Texas hospitality at a great facility. Many of the usual suspects in attendance. Lots of cool cars, too.
This is a very small Woodie Boat; 11 foot Glen-L Squirt. Designed in 1954, built in 2012. About 40 mph.
Next year I’m bringing my Little One 😃
Complete with sign🆙
Congratulations, Dan! Gotta love that little Ariston!!
