To Celebrate No Particular Reason Day, We Do Random Acts Of Woody Boating.

Jimmy Flag 1Today is all about nothing. No focus, just fun. Isn’t that what weekends are for. Especially Sundays. Yesterday the Boatress and I went out for no reason other than to escape from having to do things. We were lucky enough to be baby sitting Termite Terror for the week. Of course we did not baby it all.


The Boatress likes to Boat!

That’s what the Terror is all about. This little Cavalier has a monster new powered 350 in it, and she likes it.. She likes it alot.. Why? No particular reason. That’s why!  So today, let her rip, show us your nonsense. And yes I had to spell check Particular! Have a great Sunday! We are.

Termite Terror was just sitting there in the barn. I swear I could here her crying for some water!

I found these very cool Sears life jackets for Termite over the winter.

Jimmy 13 Life Jackets

Still in the original Sears bag. The jackets are a perfect match

She looks happy, I am hanging off the bow of the boat to get the shot. What could go wrong? Yikes

The Woody Boater HQ / Reeedvile VA.  from the water. That dam fence took two weekends to make. Gotta keep the dogs safe.

More flag shots. Something so simple about this image. Simple and no things to worry about.

    Well, pulled the Sunfish out of storage a hauled her to the beach yesterday….What’s the connection, you ask ? Well the lawn was mowed, no particular projects needed attention, there was a gentle breeze, so it it was something to do and time to do it…Oh!…and the Fish is old…Not sure how old but I’d bet 25 years…

    Could someone enlightenen me and many others with more info on the proper colored Burgees (Blue for cruisers, Red for others) and most especially, why? I’m asking for no particular reason other than I’m curious!! Until that post the other day I had not heard that.

    Score on those minty life jackets! God forbid the added stress of having to tear open the original bags in the event of a particular emergency.

    After being in two parades over the Memorial Day weekend, “Style” was itchin to make some wake. So Friday night I splashed her at 6 pm for a 3 hour cruise, no really, I was out running for three hours. Then I towed her down to Saugatuck, MI to cruise in the Harbor and out into Lake Michigan for another three hours. Only burnt 5 gallons of gas over the 6 hours of puttzin. Sure beats the 6 gallons per hour in the Hacker, or the 45 gallons per hour in our 44 ft Trojan we once had !

    Since the Chris Craft is at Katz’s getting a make over thanks to a hail storm, no woody boating for me for a few more weeks. This lawn mover is a particularly poor substitute.

    I particularly love those life jackets. Just say no to drab orange and the “Terror” is a particular favorite too. That thing will absolutely fly with that 350.

    If you are in Saugatuck watch out for the Sand Bar or the Butler. The particular reason to get a cold one. Lucky you.
