  9. Great job. My brother had someone give a boat just like that a few years back and it is still sitting in the barn. Now we have a good idea of what to do with it!

    Papascott, be careful, if you go once you'll be hooked!!! Just as addicting as fishing and almost as expensive!
     
  10. Nothing can be as expensive as fishing! How many shotguns can a person need???? :)
     
  11. Very nice work. I have one of those boats in my yard if anyone is inspired by this fine workman ship. Can have for a small donation. Athens Co.
