MERRY WOODY CHRISTMAS
Wishing you all a safe and Merry Christmas and happy New Year, hopefully you will get to spend some time with your family and friends.
A know quite a lot of you will be finding a WW t-shirt under the Christmas tree this morning, it always makes me proud to see so many of you supporting our amazingly cool wooden boating community. On a personal note, while must of us didn’t get to spend a lot of time a float in the last 12 months, I did get to rubbed shoulders with a lot of you online and I never cease to be amazed by your friendship and generosity. The feedback and input I get from people is what keeps me motivated to write a woody story everyday. To those that have sent in stories and photos, I thank you for sharing them with us.
While the covid plague restricted the use of our boats, a lot of maintenance and restorations have been happening at yards and sheds and in the spring we saw a lot of classics re-entering the scene.We have also seen a large number of folks buying classics and a high percentage of younger owners, making the switch to wood.
It is my intention these holidays, technology and wifi access allowing, to keep publishing the daily stories. But if for some reason I miss a day, just check in again the next day.
I ask that if you see anything woody related over the festive period you take a photo and send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org I’m always looking for content.
On a business front it was a big year for the Wooden Boat Bureau, and both myself and David Cooke would like to say thanks to all the people that we helped sell or buy a wooden boat in 2021 – The markets still active with buyers looking for well presented, smart looking woodys – so remember the WBB if you are thinking of buying or selling https://waitematawoodys.com/2019/12/01/wooden-boat-bureau-advice-for-buyers-and-sellers/
