Hurricanes, Eathquakes, Raw Sewage, Flooding.. And Now…. Some Dumb Ass Construction Worker..
While all our woody boaters return home from the acbs show.. With there fancy pants trophies I might add.. We here in woody boaterville are still webless. Turns out a major fiber optics cable was cut by a road crew. You know the ones that stand around an cause traffic jams. Well apparently when they work they cut things by mistake.. They can’t stop us. Nothing can.. The above image is from alex watson on his trip home through what appears to be armagedinville.. dang! Power to the iPhone!!! Again
If it had been a saltwater show the rain might have been welcome. I hope everyone has their cushions covered.
My cushions are strewn about my family room – drying out.
Ahhh, the smell of Kapok and coffee the morning after.
I noticed at our show in Quincy that most all participants that had a woody boat pulled their wet covers off before hitting the road on that rainy day. Why???
‘cuz – wet or dry – that canvas (or whateve) flapping against a varnished hull can really do a number on the finish.
Thanks, now I (and others) know.
As an additional note – I towed a friend’s boat home from Lake Geneva Sunday afternoon and half the trip was in a driving rain. Fun driving. The owner told me this morning that he drained 12 gallons of water out of the boat. Does that qualify for some kinda woody bucket award?
No Jack not enought effort, God put the water in, and you let the other guy bail it out.:):)
You peole will have to put alittle more effort in to get this award. We don’t just hand them out willie-nillie.
Once the boat’s interior is wet, a cover is useless. I trailered mine home uncovered in the rain. Once the rain stops, the wind actually helps air things out. I always pull the cushions when trailering, wet or dry.
If a boat can’t get wet what can?
Cushions and seat bases in my car too.
Sitting on them now.
When I close my eyes while driving, I feel like I’m on the water.
Then again, might be all the hydroplaning. So much rain, I think I coulda boated along the highway, towing the car on a barge.
PS. Scripps not in the car. Left that in the boat. I figure with water already in the oil, what’s another gallon or two?
PPS. Kidding about driving with my eyes closed, of course. (I only do that when I boat, to imagine I’m in my car.)
Forget the one eye deal, how are you commenting and driving!
Uh – I gave Alex a lesson on this before he left Geneva Lake. That’s where the on-road photo came from…
The cushions are all strewn about in the family room in our house all of the time.
1) Frequent stops. Being I’m, ahem, easily distracted, I tend to stop at and for anything and everything that catches my eye.
2) Food stops, coffee stops, fuel stops, trailer check stops, pee stops, more pee stops (hey, I’m 49).
3) Dictation to hitchhikers I pick up. (“Hey, want a boat ride?”)
4) Addictive, habitual refreshes of WB when I complete legs of the drive.
5) Construction delays on US 2 (when I wrote that last comment).
6) Safe arrival in Hessel (this comment).
