Introducing “Swell Time” The New Term Used For The Start Of The Classic Boat Season
Yesterday we had a fun day naming the opposite of Last Gasp Week, which so well captures the essence of one last breath of boating late in the fall. And now we have a new term. SWELL TIME! Thanks to Dick Dow for the name. He wins a pack of frozen Wieners.
Apalachicola Antique and Classic Boat show is today. Weather, as contrasted to yesterday, looks great for today. Will anybody else be there ?
I think the name is swell idea, once it soaked in
I always knew him as “Mr Red and White” as pictured.
You really took the grand prize this time Dick.
Oh bye the way… when Dick was in junior high, he had a band and they named themselves after the school mascot which was a Trojan. So…. The band’s name was Dick and the Trojans…
They didn’t know at the time what that referred to.
Here is the photo I forgot to add
Just swell. I didn’t win. Oh well, that actually is a great term. I am happy that our boat does not need to swell up in order to float, plus, it is nice to know that we won’t be lugging about an extra 700 lbs of water.
It would be interesting to have a story about a boat that had to swell up, and then after a restore and thus not needing to swell anymore….and assuming the engine stayed the same, it would be interesting to find out the performance of said boat before and after. In other words, how much faster and better handling is that boat without the extra water weight gain.
Awesome story idea, Briant!
It would be interesting to know the actual weight difference before and after as well or is that “as swell”?
700 pounds of water equals a little ove 11 cubic feet. Some swelling here!
