It’s The 5th Annual Woody Boater Holiday Party!


Well, Dennis and Ed are already here!

It came late this year! But it’s never to late to have a fun office party. So come on by! The entire gang will be here through out the day and hopefully this year  Woodyboatervilles finest wont get called. Also please. Zip gets a little tipsy and doesn’t appreciate the Cheeta jokes.


Yes, we went there!


It’s so good to see Larry again. He’s been the life of the party since he died two years ago.

Come on by, leave a comment or tow. The drinks are on us!


Lily! Moderation Lily!

Cops 2

Woody Boaters finest usualy shows up around 10


Oh Lily! Just a sip at a time.


Woody Gal, and her big Johnson are always the life of the party!

Say hi to each other and have fun!

    It’s great to be among the first to arrive this year! And the weather doesn’t look like it will be a concern for travellers. Dennis and I dressed like that at our 4th annual Boat Shop Christmas Party last year. Along with Ben and Myrna H, we always have that party on the Friday before Christmas and it has grown every year. We had close to a hundred folks drop by last year. The plans for this year’s party were interrupted at the last minute by Ben’s need for bypass surgery. We are happy to report that all went well and he is home recuperating and being the the model patient for nurse Myrna. We will reschedule that party when he is back to full speed ahead. In the mean time it’s great to be attending the WoodyBoater party and we brought some of the Saugatuck Brewery stock we were holding for our party.
    Merry Christmas to Woody boaters everywhere!

    OK Gang, the sun just came up and it’s 50 degrees, so the Michigan Chapter is on its way to the party. I just pulled off to the side for Marianne to take a few shots of the other boats on our Christmas Party run. We will be there soon so keep the party going strong. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Marianne and I, and all of the Michigan Chapter WoodyBoaters. See you in Algonac in June.

    Well, we’re hitting the bottle early today…. and nothing says “party” with Canadian Woodyboaters like maple syrup! Hmmmm. I wonder what mahogany syrup tastes like ? …Varnish probably 🙂

    Merry Christmas to all.

    Let’s see – if I can get through the locks without an issue, down the coast, through the canal and across the gulf, up the eastern seaboard – I may make it if this Santa Dust is still good… If not, Merry Christmas to all! Maybe next year 🙂

    Another year of good times and fun photos here at Woody Boater. Thanks to everyone for joining in with us. This week Woody Boater is putting the finishing touches on a story for the next Brass Bell magazine, due out in early 2016.

    Photo crew Matt, Dane and Jimmy from the air at Gull Lake. Happy Holidays everyone! – Texx

      Not sure I can wait until next year to see the Woody Boater story in The Brass Bell…but then I guess I don’t have any choice except to sit hee and bite my nails until then.

    It’s after 7 am down under, someone go wake up Phil so he doesn’t have to party alone later when we all crash.

    Sorry I’m late – it’s a Flaherty tradition!!

    Alsoly, today was my birthday and I typically boycott any holiday related activities on my birthday, but the littlest little and I are willing to make an exception for WoodyBoater!

    This Chris Craft ski boat ain’t gonna make the trip so we’ve commandeered grandpa’s 38′ Tollycraft and hopefully we can make it they Panama before the new year’s party…

    Merry Christmas to all!!
