This is a story of a Restoration

I restored this boat from April 2006 to October 2008. You will need to go to the very bottom, October 2008, to find the biginning. See blog archive on the right side.

Congrats! Beautiful boat! I'm glad that it worked out for you. You certainly deserved to win considering how much time you put into it.

Thanks for sharing the pics. Almost as good as being there! Glad Lisa could share it with you (nice hairdo Lisa!).

OBG, I want you to crash my meet and greet! Are you in Utah right now? I want to introduce you to my mom!

OldBoatGuy said...

Crash, I am home in Idaho, heading to Sandpoint, Idaho early Friday morning. Another boat show.

Sorry.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Hey OBG, thanks for the email to let me know you had a boat show. It would have been way too much estrogen anyway. But I would have loved to meet you. It was so great to meet your daughter. She's da bomb. Very photogenic too.

I hope your boat show went well.

Did you know my mom loves loves loves boats. Seriously. She says she could live on a boat.

It's easy to see where Lisa got her looks! (Congrats on the award!)

OldBoatGuy said...

Crash, I'm sorry I was boat showing when you came to Utah. Now tell me, why did you tell me that your mother loves boats? I'll be going to Lisa's for another water skiing party this month.

Heidi, thanks for the compliment. I give her beautiful mother much credit.

Arlon, I just found the link to your blog from Don D's forum. Sorry it took me so long. Love the video of the Christening. I'm glad I decided to "pour" the champagne rather than "break" it after seeing your video. I'm also glad to see you or Peg didn't lose an eye.

Perhaps I'll swing on by on my way to Tahoe. I dream of making that road trip some day.

Congrats on all the awards!
