Privacy Policy

There are ways to write this like a fancy pants lawyer I am sure—but I ain’t one. So here it is in our own unfancy pants way.

We hate Spam emails

I don’t like them when I get them and I hate the idea of being a part of that crap world. So if you send me an email it stays with me.

  • If you have to use your email address to sign in to yell at someone? The email and your identity stays here.
  • You want to post anonymously? Have at it. I encourage it, it helps the hobby be more balanced. Woody Boater is the only place in the hobby where you can speak your mind about any issue related to classic boats. So, we will not use any information that we get for any purpose. Period. If I could disable that I would.
  • What we will reject your comment over? Personal attacks. If it smacks of being personal or offensive. If the images you are uploaded could been seen as offensive, or copyright protected.
