Woody Ho Ho


Wishing you all a safe and Merry Christmas and happy New Year. I hope you get time with family and friends – after all, that is what its all about, the boats are #2.

As we rolled out of the nanny state control of Covid I imagined WW might take a dip in viewing numbers from the heady figures we hit during the enforced downtime. Well totally the opposite – new visitor numbers have continued to grow and more importantly the amount of time people are spending on the site has over trebled. 

When I started WW the primary intention was to create a daily blog on and about wooden boats – it is still that, but its morphed into a resource tool for just about anything associated with the wooden boating movement.

As with most things in life, they are only as good as the people that rub up against them – so thank you to those that reach out with content, comments and even abuse 🙂

As per previous years 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   waitematawoodys@gmail.com  I’m always looking for content.

Thanks to my good friend Dave Giddens we will have a slight theme to a lot of the stories over the break – a lot of ‘BUGGER / OOPS’ moments.

Stay dry, safe and wear your PFD when you have been enjoying the good life afloat.

Warmest Regards Alan

  1. There was a woody called HoHo. A Wellington fishing trawler (?) around the 50ft mark. I believe went to Queensland in the 1970,s and became a sailing vessel.


  2. Great job getting Santa to wear your t-shirt for the photo! that will be why you are getting more followers – he left your calling card under the trees! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, see you in February


  3. Happy XMAS Alan, and may the Woody’s site continue to provide a fabulous resource relating to Wooden Boats. As always I will continue to provide content when able.


  4. Merry Christmas Alan !
    I am heading off on Tangaroa tomorrow morning for 4 weeks cruising Abel Tasman and the Queen Charlotte Sound 🙂
    Hope you enjoy your Summer.
    Regards, John.
