Today is the first day of the end of 2020. As in that time between Christmas and New Year. Kinda a no mans land of days. So, today, I decided, to do a generic story. Yup a story about nothing. Yet something, because its here and you are reading it. So its something about nothing. Not to be confused with the Seinfeld show about nothing, in which he made a ship load of something green from. I will just keep dribbling on about nothing, and you my fellow Woody Boaters will wonder why in the hell you are still reading this crap about..well. nothing.
Can ya tell I have had about 2 hrs sleep? Who in the hell thought getting a puppy would be a good idea? I can vouch for the Boatress, she said bad idea.. Shhh don’t tell her she was right, it just encourages more of her being right. “Ahhhh there’s nothing too it” I said.. And here we are.. With more nothing. Heck, I am not even sure I have posted this yet? Have I?
I have no response for the story about nothing.
I like this week! Coarse it’s because my B-day is in this week.Kinda sucks to be born close to Christmas as gifts get doubled up.

Feel like I’m stuck in a Seinfeld episode.
I’m distracted from the great nothingness in wondering how they got that second boat on and off that trailer?
( a screen shot of a cleaned up photo…..)
Bob Berglund built boats starting around mid 50’s. He started building them in his garage and after he sold a few had to move to a larger building. He built boats from 12′ to 18′. Mostly “sportsman” style but they also built “express cruiser” styles boats. One of the characteristics of a Berglund boat is the backwards c design on the sides. They were made from molded mahoghany plywood and oak(?) frames. They were all powered by outboard motors. Not sure if they built any inboards. The company went out of business around 1959-60. The company was located in Wilmington, IL. More info and pictures on the Berglund website.
Two hours sleep? OK I’ll go for another two hours.
I get it, but can you please explain “# bfb8b8 COLOR
It’s the RGB color of 191, 184, 184 expressed in hexadecimal form. To see what it looks like, look at the header.
Here’s a photo of a budding on Crosslake catching nothing. No boat required.
No real photo captions so we need to make them up ourselves in the best tradition of WoodyBoater. But first a nap.
The failed concept of the double decker boat .
After learning what the restoration cost Karen vowed never to talk to him again.
While riding off into the sunset Matt swore he would re-name the boat Miss Karen for her.
(Oh Boy! Now we can start some juicy WB rumor’s on a nothing day)
I think she is mad because the boat is all he got in the divorce settlement due to their affair.
That’s not even her own husband and she’s ticked off at the restoration cost!
This story was about average, but the header is one of your best yet!
Thanks for nothing, I needed a break 💔
I enjoyed the photo of Morris Rosenfeld. He had such a huge impact on boating, most may not even know the extent of his work, but it has been a real window to the past .
In case you missed it there was a great WB story about M.R. back in 2014 by Cobourg Kid.
Nothing to see here folks please keep moving! Or boating in this case.
Ayyyyy! – Sit on it!
So much adieu about nothing… 😉
geez…the nothing story got lots of good responses! Run a story about the 8 Chris Craft trawlers…
I am just back from Going Boating…or at least staying aboard last night in the covered slip with the shore power heat on….

“Waiter what’s in this sausage?”
Shoulda got a cat instead of a puppy.We don’t do poo on floor(we go in box in litter)we leave presents(dead mice & birds.)even a barfed up mouse on your pillow.
Ain’t nothing better than a whole mess o’ nothing.
