Happy Boatress Day!

My Valentine!

One of the most wonderful things about the Classic boat world, is that it’s a couple, family sort of community. Everyone loves a boat ride, and even though I get all geeky about Reed & Prince screws, the joy of a warm sunset ride, can be romantic, fun and wonderful. So today, share your Valentine. My wwonderful Boatress keeps me alive and full of joy! Thanks for sharing the ride!

Oh! Ya Cloudy Days can cramp your style

    I’m with you Matt! I feel like I married up.
    She loves the lake and all types of boat rides.
    However I don’t think she will ever want her own boat thank God! 4 boat lifts now take up a lot of our sea wall.
    Happy Valentines Day to everyone!

    If I could have either you or wecatchem….Matt would still have a great boat.
    Hoping my wonderful girlfriend and Valentine Bethany will accompany me to Lake Dora this year…

    Great pictures of Suzy. It is obvious that you are head over heels for her and rightfully so. Thanks for the help with Valentine’s Day. I used one of your classic cards for Jodi.
    Here is a pic of the two of us and OK it was about 10 years ago, but I am a lucky man!

    Here is Anne having the Breakfast of Champions, a French éclair with a Dutch beer, while in a small village in Ireland. C’est trés internationale, no?

    I was lucky and thankful when she said “Yes!” I am still lucky and thankful!

    What an awesome tribute to your better half, Matt. Every single pic of Suzy is stunning and certainly shows her personality! You, and Suzy, are definitely one very lucky COUPLE!
