The Boatress and Oreo
The Boatress has been there for me for over 30 years, despite the fact that today is her 35th Birthday. I really don’t understand the math of it all, and to be honest do not recall getting married to a 5 year old. Even though I am still 12.
She loves her Trawler
Sweet Pea is all decked out and ready to go, anyplace. Sons of varnish flag up!
She has a can of Sour Suzy from the Netherlands and some kisses from Murphy.
She is always up for a boat ride.
My best friend and side kick.
In honor of the Boatress’s Birthday today, we wanted to have an appreciation day for all our Boatress’s who are there in support of our best intentions to have fun. Despite the fuel smell and obsession with old ladies.
She will murder me one day though.
For the Boatress. Yellow, pink interior. In progress, this is the sketch for final approval from her.
By the way, Old lady is a metaphor and term given to BOATS
It’s a much more fun passion when we can share it with the ones we love year after year!
Had fun with Photoshop years ago.
Yah she is a saint. This is a real photo from a shoot in South Africa
She loves driving
But does get a little tired of me and my camera. This was in Salzburg Austria
At the helm of a cool deadrise
Ready for some fun in Moonshiner
She will even put a hat on for a photo… For one second
She loves her dogs
That time her and Karen Harrison got on the cover of Classic Boating
There she is!
No matter the weather, she is there!
She raised over $20K for the Avon Breast Cancer Walk with your help!

Happy Birthday to the Boatress!
Happy Birthday Suzy😊
46+ years and my boatress is also only 30. Same math class?
Happy Birthday Suzy!
Happy Birthday Suzy. Here’s my Boatress, her birthday is Monday and apparently human years don’t apply to them as each year the gap between out ages gets bigger. If she gets any younger I could be in trouble with the law. Also per her woodyboating requires a big hat.
Have a great one! Love your new boat!
Happy Birthday from Northern Michigan….enjoy your Day.
My boatress also has a birthday today and a big number at that.
I won’t say she is as passionate about boats as Suzy is – let’s call it tolerant.
Happy Birthday to all !
tolerant is good.
Wishing you a splendid birthday Suzy! 😀
Only a day? We call it Boatress week. Pin that fun meter.
Happy Birthday Suzy!!! From the Sheplers
Enjoy your day!
Hope to see you guys in Nothern Michagan this fall?
We will have Mom’s Mink there. We owe you a ride on the Saint Clair river. Kathy will bring the wine. For passengers of course!
So the Cavalier was an early birthday present! Happy birthday to the Boatress! Hope it’s the beginning of a wonderful year.
My Boatress, Ronnie, is also my best friend and also tolerates my boating passion.
While I just hit the 50 year anniversary yesterday with my EX wife, she would have been still around, if it were not for her anti boating demeanor.
Ronnie, on the other hand, is always up for a ride or traveling to a Classic Boat Show.
Bless all the Boatresses out there…
WOW, you went back into the archives to find that picture of me! LOL
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUZY!! From Michigan’s Beautiful U.P. I have a birthday on Monday. Enjoy It!
Hey Suzy, have a fabulous birthday! Do what you want!!!
Have the happiest of birthdays
Happy Birthday Suzy from the left coast!
Re: the shot of you on the Riva sunbed….maybe Matt will up his game and find you your own Riva for your next birthday boat…..
Happy Birthday Suzy! Happy 35th! 😉 If there was a WoodyBoatress site I imagine the comments about old boats and old boat guys would be interesting/entertaining/revealing… There is another trawler of sorts with similar colors available to you and Matt if you ever get up our way and feel like exploring the waters around Seattle. Have a wonderful day!
Does Suzy qualify as a barn find?
Happy belated birthday Suzy! Sorry I’m late, but I was busy in Algonac all day yesterday and did not check in on WB.
I had GONE BOATING and missed Suzy’s B-day….all I have to say is Matt is one lucky SOB!
