Thanks George,

It was once said “The quality must go in before the name goes on”



We put the final touches on Mama Mia!’s new coat Friday morning and headed up to Beloit.





Had her on The Rock that afternoon and what a relief it was to have my old girl floating once again.



Thanks,
Terry

Thanks Guys,

George,

You know this isn’t all about awards but if they insist on acknowledging the beauty of Glasspar boats with trophies I’m OK with that. These shows are a lot of fun and all about sharing the beauty of these classic boats.

Hey Jerry,

Early in the restoration of Mama Mia! the thought of anyone ever referring my Sedan as a beauty queen was simply incomprehensible. I joke about her as being a show boat but a beauty queen? I guess I’m OK with that now. But just don’t call her a trailer queen. Cuz Mama Mia! likes to get wet.
Real wet as a matter of fact.



We had a sudden downpour on the Rock on Saturday and we all got real wet.



OMG my boat got wet.



But it quickly passed over and we had lotsa fun running the Rock.


Thanks,
Terry

Hey Guys,
Mary and I are back from our week up in the north woods. The show was great and the lakes and the boating up there is awesome. Got Mama Mia! put back together and running again too late to register to show her in the water so she did not get judged. Two of my friends with glass boats won trophies so that’s a consolation.

But she is purring again and I can actually idle and shift gears without dying out. A guy got took a video of Mama Mia! cruising past the show up there and put it up in YouTube.



It’s Martini Time!









Thanks,
Terry
