This Is Our 9th Thanksgiving Together. Could You Please Pass The Varnish Gravy Please.

Pass the varnishThanks for visiting us today on what is our 9th Thanksgiving together. The day promises to be a joyous day of family getting together and then slowly digress into the awkward drunk Uncle who thinks his Arabian is better than A XK. Or someone will claim to own another Golden Pond boat. Or I will start bitching about Copyright issues. Someone will no doubt complain about not being able to enlarge the images. And you know what? That’s when we all know we are family here. A small nutty family with a horrible genetic defect in our need for varnish gravy. And the idea of spending a afternoon out in a barn sanding with a beer and friends is a real holiday. So today, lets all raise our glasses, and say thanks for each other. This culture wouldn’t be the same with out you. Happy Thanksgiving, Matt & Texx

    You know what I mean, we all have sawdust for brains! We need those two!

    With a house full of grandchildren to keep me busy all day I didn’t get a chance to tune in until late. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving day here. Hope all you Woody Boaters did too.

    And giving thanks to Matt & Texx is a fitting way to finish this special day. Happy Thanksgiving, and good night!

    Aloha and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone at Woody Boater and to all!

    We are very thankful for all you do for the Woody boater community. I am especially thankful for all you have done for us and the wonderful story you put together on our Fairliner Torpdeo. The journey continues to be amazing. We have met some wonderful people and the dream just keeps flying along.

    As we gather around the table tonight we are truly thankful for: the team at Woody Boater, Curt and Marsha Erickson, Bruce Bronson, Larry Cheek, Greg Gilbert, .Allen Petrich, and Matt Murphy at Wooden .boat Magazine! Man, all you guys rocked our year! I am especially thankful to God and my awesome and wonderful wife, Sharon. For without them the boat would have just remained a dream. Now, it’s a reality!

    All the best to everyone for a Blessed Thanksgiving. Make every day Thanksgiving!
