Float That Boat

A couple of weeks ago, Secret Agent Man decided to build a new river boat....in a weekend.  
For real....

I received a few skeptical comments about the boat's ability to float, so I wanted to make sure to provide some proof of its buoyancy. 


It made its inaugural run this weekend.  Floating like a champ. 

A few fish were even caught. 

The Deerslayer caught the most. 

Maybe I need to change his nickname.....

  5. That is just plain cool that hubby built his own boat and so quickly! We're just wondering how he waterproofed it? How fun to make a boat for your kids to fish in, I'd say he's an A-1 champion DAD! Then I showed my hubby your rolls and put in an order for them. LOL!

  7. How relaxing to be in the new boat and to fish on the river.
    Reminds me of a funny book I recommend, titled "The boat that wouldn't float" by Farley Mowat.
    I glad your boat floats!

  16. Looks like SAM built a superb vessel. I wouldn't change Deerslayers nick unless it has a link to something cooler or manly. lol

    How was your fish dinner?

  20. Drove through your beautiful state this past week, going south and coming back. LOVED the red buds, dogwood, and other flowering trees that decorated our way. Such a beautiful contrast from last years chilly scenes. Hope we don't have to pay for our early spring though. My apple trees have blooms on them, and there are frost/freeze warnings out for the next two nights :-( What will be will be. Your husband's boat, to quote a favorite old movie of mine, looks "Yar." Not sure what that means, but that's what Katherine Hepburn said about the boat she and Cary Grant had in The Philadelphia Story, and it sounded grand!

  30. Poor Deerslayer. I guess that nickname doesn't translate well to fish. He's a good sport though.

    We're getting our bass boat ready for some river cruising and I'm so excited.
