Take 5 and Win $500?

Post by Bill Basler » Mon Apr 04, 2011 4:08 pm

Take the Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club - Hagerty survey here.

As a follow up to our recent announcement that Hagerty Marine Insurance will be sponsoring the Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club for 2011-2012, we are eager to get your feedback via a new survey that will hopefully give us new insight into our beloved hobby.

For those of you who have been with us for a few years, you'll remember a survey that we ran a few years back. This survey gave us the input we needed to move ahead with several member benefits such as the Wiki, the online hull registry, and expansion of the archive.

We are again seeking to learn a bit more about the antique boat lifestyle. This survey was drafted in collaboration with Hagerty. It is anything but an insurance survey. It is much more of a classic and antique boat lifestyle survey. We trying to figure out what makes us all tick! The results will be shared, and we intend to use what is learned to move this club forward.

Now, here's the bribery part of the deal. If you take a few minutes to complete the survey, your name will be put into the hopper for a $500.00 West Marine gift certificate drawing. As the season of life jackets, fenders, and dock lines is upon us, who can't use a little financial support? You have until April 15 to take the survey in order to be eligible for the drawing. Your odds of winning? Well, we're a small niche—your odds are very good!

OK, here's the skinny as of this morning. Avid readers of Woodyboater, and members of the ACBS are promoting this same survey. The survey result will benefit us all.

For reasons very important to our Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club, I would like your survey totals to outnumber the ACBS and Woodyboater combined. I think we can do this, but it is not going to be easy. My concern is that after two days of being posted on Boat Buzz, this topic has gotten only 95 views with a very poor showing in the returns department at just 19.

Let's go Chris-Craft Antique Boat Clubbers. We can take this over as we have in the past. Or prior survey yielded well over 1,200 responses. I would like to think we are better than 19.

As of this morning, Woodyboater had 155 responses, with Woodyboater atr 120. The Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club at 19??? We're better than that. Aren't we?

Be sure to indicate that you learned of this survey through the Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club or through Boat Buzz.

Fellow, Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club (CCABC) members, take the challenge and take the survey here. This is a very comprehensive survey, very well thought out and will only be meaningful if ALL of us respond. I did (right here) and feel good for doing so.

It does take a slow reader like me a little longer to go through it but I feel that it's my chance to feed information that may have an impact on the future of the hobby, passion. It's very important to all of us.

Take The Survey!!!

My 11 inch crab skiff.. I have been laughing at my typo all day now.. The Skiffany is actually a very cool boat, built by Tiffany Cockrel of Tiffany yachts. He is in his 80's and has been building boats his entire life. This was the last one he built for my wife. Its 17 feet has a 75 evenrude and flies. The crab skiff was built by my wife's great uncle and was saved from being a planter on the family farm..

Is the crab included, Matt?

Marty and I may have a tie as I, too, completed the survey right after Bill posted the notice.

My real name is also Matt, not Marty or Stern, another name I have been called on Boat Buzz. Most of the other things people call me can't be posted here due to the forum rules, so feel free to call me Matt, Marty, Stern, Bob or pretty much whatever you would like. One big exception would be Anonymous, as that name now carries a worse conotation in Woodyboater land than the four letter names I am more accustomed to.

As for the prize boat, can I get some clarification before I go pick her up? Is it an 11" long skiff for crabbing, or is it a skiff for an 11" crab? If the later, I certainly hope the crab is included as my mouth is watering already! Also, if a trailer is included, what ball size will I need, 0.2"?

One more thing, the 11" crab skiff reminds me of the 18" Stonehenge...

Ha. Now I really feel embarrassed. I have a good friend from high school named Marty Fine. I guess I was channeling 1978 again. Sorry Matt Fine! I know better actually. I guess Matt Fine and Matt Smith took by brain hostage for a bit.

The Boat Buzz version of the survay is 40 minutes long because "Someone" wanted to know more about things for a CERTAIN club.. Our Woody Boater version is shorter and has babe pictures though out..
