Christmas Eve Good News – Carla Update!

Carla and Sophie

For many of us in the culture of classic boats, one person helps us all feel a little more secure about our boats and families security. Carla from Hagerty Marine Insurance. Well, Carla wanted to pass along a wonderful message to all of citizens of Woodyboaterville who have wanted to know how she is doing.

“Kyle, Sophie (pup) and I went to cheer on over 3,400 Santa’s in the San Diego 5k Santa Run a week ago. Although I couldn’t participate this year, fingers crossed, I’ll be joining the crowd next year! Please thank your readers for their prayers, positive energy and happy holiday greetings. Although my left side is still completely numb, I am truly blessed for retaining all else.”


We could not think of a more wonderful Christmas Eve good news thing to pass along. Carla you look MAHvelous!

    Terrific Carla,

    If you can make it to San Diego, surely we will see you at the big ACBS extravaganza in A Bay in September.

    Best wishes Carla to a true Ambassador of the sport.

    Can you give us one ice boating or winter storage safety tip so we can feel like things are going to get back to normal ?
