It’s Saturday. We Could All Use A Virtual Hug!
Usually by this time of year, I am able to show some images of people boating having fun. Great photos can ignite that sort of fun. But here we are. Working in the Barn, in the house, worn out by it all. I have to say, loosing Dick Werner was a bit of a camel/straw breaker thing for many of us. This was expressed in some wonderfully warm photos of Dick and his boats.
Your wonderfully warm comments made it better, and warmed all our hearts. So today what if we keep the sharing going?
Share your warm spring/summer boating photos. if there was ever a time to pull those out of the file, now is it. Fun family social closeness photos. Hugs, smiles. And groups of people on your boat. A reminder that we at one point were all carriers of sickness. Okay, I have always been, but the cure for my sickness is, and always has been a good chuckle and hug.
And maybe, just maybe by the end of the day, we will all feel the warmth of each other. And once again, Dick Werners kindness and love, has inspired us all.
I couldn’t resist. I hope this will bring back fond memories for all the WoodyBoaters that came to Port Huron to party with the Michigan gang in 2018!
WHAT THE HELL.. You had a show? Why didnt anyone tell me!!!
Today is little Ryan’s Birthday. Happy 8th Birthday Ryan! (Ryan is wearing the red life jacket)
Any virtual WoodyBoater wishes are appreciated!
Happy Birthday Ryan!
Our governor just issued orders that no power boating is allowed in MI.
Only rowboats, kayaks and SAILBOATS are permitted because power boating is not deemed “physical exercise”!!!
Meanwhile, our neighboring states of WS and MN have both said marinas and dock installers are essential businesses.
So, this picture from last summer may be a thing of the past until further notice.
Not “physical activity”???? Sure, you try it then Ms. Governor.
Tree huggin’, bark eatin’ €#%*~@+=<!!!!!!!!!!
It may not be Physical excersize but it is great MENTAL excersize!! Here it does not matter because we woke up to a frozen lake.
Sounds good Jim and I will agree, any day on the water with any watercraft of any kind, is a good day.
Right now, just hopeful that by May 1, things could look a little better for all concerned.
join in and sign the recall petition going around…
More than likely this photo was taken in August. The clarification to the EO was to prevent rafting and events like Jobby Nooner.
Hydro boating on the Indian River in April is unlikely. Hopefully the ban will be lifted at the end of the month.
Our boats are row boats half the time? Does that count! HA
That’s why I always have TWO paddles aboard but always happy to take a tow too.
Even from a pontoon………..ouch.
The ultimate shame……..
Wow,—-Got me again!
I just recently acquired a pretty good size collection of “Classic Boating” magazines and one of the first issues I read happen to be from 2001. It featured Dick and his stunning Century triple cockpit. Great boat and according to the article and all of the comments I have read obviously a great guy. Sounds like he really had love and passion for the boats & community.
No boating here in Ontario the province closed marinas and said stay home.
WhooHoo! A great day on the lake. True warmth.
Now we are all going to fall out
Try that again.
Well the MI fisherman aren’t listening. More then 50 boats out on the Saginaw Bay of Lake Huron. It’s going to be a beautiful day here and they just have to fish to feed their families.
Hi Woody boaters everywhere. Im in London Engand on the River Thames. We have been told to keep off our boats as well. I l live close enough to get to the boat but its not really fair to rub the general publics noses in it so we are staying moored.
Or boat is 90 years old its seen worse!
Memories light the corners of my mind. Misty water colored memories of the way we were.
Lake Greenwood, SC this past September.
One of my favorite gathering pics!

Looking forward to repeating this photo once again this July when my son Dan and his family are back in town. Good times with my three sons and friends, aboard our Coronado, “Family Tradition”.
I’d love to be able to just hang out on a dock at this point but the marina is all locked up.
Aloha! Just got this cool photo of my buddy’s Fairliner in NZ. He built it from our original plans. It’s so cool I just had to share it. Nothing like a flying Fairliner Torpedo. It was just featured in Boating NZ magazine.
Would this be considered power boating? A car that got out of control? Or essential transportation
Here’s a photo from about eight years ago, taken at Roche Harbor, one of our favorite destinations. Boating with the family – it doesn’t get any better! 🙂
Unless the hug is from her, I’ll keep my distance.
Wow….love this upbeat stuff…sure beats that picture of me that you call “mr. Lonely”….just cause it was raining…???
Here is my one pic….and now that I know how to post a pic you will be seeing this one a lot….it is my only, post hard drive crash, one.
Going Boating again today….quarantined aboard!
