The Real Deal! No Crappy plasic one size fits all bands. All Custom made by the same company that has made these for close to 100 years!

It’s that time of year again. Mount Dora.. This year we are planning on actually having hats there. no waiting. It’s a bold move since they are not cheap, and come in different sizes. But the management of the sales and the delays in delivery have us trying something different. We have a handful of orders. But had a major email crash, if you were on an order list, please notify me. We lost about 10,000 emails.. I am not kidding.. Ahhhhh! So we are moving ahead. BUT. No black ones. It’s a long boring story. One day.. Not today. So. You can get Blue. Or white The white ones come with a patch. The blue ones have gold braiding. The pin in the image above is vintage and can be found on eBay from time to time. I have about 10 of them and will be also bring those to show how it all works. This one is from a Maryland Yacht Club.

Authentic Chris - Craft Club and Chris - Craft Approved Hat - $200

So. If you want to make sure you get one in your size. Order now. You can contact me at they are $175.00 plus shipping. If you want to cut out the middle man. Knock yourself out. They are around $300 if you order one at a time. OUCH.. BUT.. when you get yours.. Worth every penny. There is a banner on the right side of this page that will tell you more than you want to know. SO. Here we go. Oporators are standing by. Act Now.. Look thinner, handsomer, skippererer, dorkyer…

    Hey Matt. These are actually growing on me. The quality vs the cheap ones really shows in the pics. Can you turn these around backwards for those occasional WOT runs? Or would that give the look of a beret?

    I am telling you. These things grow on you. My wife is still not there. but at shows and events. Its the way to go. I wear mine when boating and always get the thumbs up. Embrace what you are. bring your hat desires out of the closet. ! Be proud.

    I love my hat! Makes me look way more intelligent, handsome, deboner, etc! Guess I’ll have to get a pipe one of these days too. Mearshim, maybe? I also love the masthead today!

    I love my hat too! My wife and granddaughter thinks it makes me look like a bus driver though. They think I need to wear it when driving the RV, not the boat. Wellllll…

    I’ll have it on next month at the Show in “Tavares” on “Lake Dora”, doubt if anyone will find one of these hats in “Mount Dora”. Matt, the show moved 4 years ago.

    I do have pins. I hoard them from eBay. I think I have a bout ten of them. The fun is to match them up with where you live, or would like to live. They come in all sorts of sizes and shapes. Cant find new ones. I have looked into remaking them as a woody boater one. but we only sell about 50 hats a year. Not sure if the math worked out. The pins usually are around 20 bucks on eBay. I will have them as stated in the story.. at MT dora to show folks. There was also a story on them on Woody Boater a bit back.. Here is the link.

    You are not alone anymore. Today alone we have just booked 6 hats. OUCH! Thats a ton of Jacky Gleasons running around

    All, if Matt was able to resurect the hats, maybe, there is someone to make a pin. Not just any pin but, a WoodyBoater pin. It could look like a head-on of a boat with the starboard side a stylized “W” and the port a “B” sorta like the Warrner Brothers Movie Studio trademark but, a boat with a pennant on top. We could have a design contest and a free pin to the wienner. That would be too cool! Tony

    Will you have any of the caps with you in Mt Dora ?
    Myself and four or five of the usual suspects from Tahoe will be at the show.

    matt says:

    Yes, that is the plan, but dont wait if you know you want one. I will have about 6 in different sizes. If they sell. They are gone til the next order. MT dora last year we sold 24.

    OK, so I’m hy-jacking this thread. All this gab about a stupid, dumb looking hat, and it’s not even a Southern Crown Boatworks hat, and I can’t even get a half dozen baby sh#t YELLOW plain jane WOODYBOATER t-shirts, and only 50 days till Tavares. I hate to keep harping on this BUT I seem to be screaming at a deaf man.:):)

    matt says:

    Quit your sniveling! The yellow shirts were a one time deal. They were the first year of Woody Boater t shirts never to be replicated. You have a collectors item for sure. Each year we do something different. Just like our boats. Its all about the art. This year we are in the works for something fun and different with the new logo. So those of you with the original yellow shirts, blue shirts and last years fun Sand Varnish classic shirt. Thats it. Stay tuned for the new 2011 Woody Boater shirts. And yes they will be available in long sleeve.

    Do you by any chance have any more of the Lancaster captain’s hats? I’m wanting a black one (ideally) or blue in size 7 3/8. I realize Lancaster went out of business but it sounded like you had some. If not, who has the next best quality? Thank you, Mark
