For the Love of Wood Boats
Every time I see a gleaming mahogany boat – I am mesmerized and very thankful for those who so lovingly own, restore, and care for the Wooden Boats of Lake Rabun, GA. Their beauty and timeless elegance takes my breath away. My heart skips a beat as their unique voices approach. With a voice as smooth and rich as Barry White’s some engines purr, others roar, and one, I’ve had the pleasure riding in, rhythmically ‘whomp-whumps’ like a vintage singer sewing machine. No matter what their sound, size, age, color, make, speed, or model – they all help make Lake Rabun a magical, soul-southing, heavenly place. I tip my hat to those brave soul’s who own, restore, and repair them. Thank-you for so lovingly keeping your vintage wood boat water tight, moving forward (and in reverse!), and out and about, cruising, for the rest of us to enjoy!
