REDNECK YACHT CLUB

.
.
.
We were given an old boat for free. After assessing how much work it needed, Andrew decided it wasn't worth the cost. So instead, he hauled it to a local pawn shop and received $200 smackaroos.
.
.
.
.
Then he went out and found a little aluminum boat for the same price (well...he talked them down a hundred bucks) and brought it home.
.
.
.
.
Look at how pleased he is with himself. =)
.
.
.
.
The "new" boat was sure ugly! But he had big plans for it.

.
.
And for the camouflage lovin', boat floatin', fisherman readers of this blog, this tutorial is for you! Since that defines the majority of you, here we go...
.
.
.
.
First, he put on a base coat of khaki color paint (leaving the interior a hunter green).
.
.
.
.
Then, using a pine tree branch as a stencil, Andrew sprayed a design with black and green spray paint.
.
.
.
.

I think the final product turned out awesome! Not tacky like I had imagined.
.
.
.
.

Then, trough the trading of some old, unneeded tools, Andrew was also able to obtain an engine to put on the back. We couldn't wait to take it out on Island Park Reservoir!
.
.
The four of us were the coolest bunch of rednecks you ever did see, floating around the lake with our cooler full of drinks, eating our donuts, and attempting to catch a darn fish. I wish I had more pictures of that day, but I thought it wise to leave the expensive camera back on solid ground.
.
.
I'm excited for all the summer adventures that await us on our little boat!
.
.
.
.
Now he's going to fix up this old boat for his dad!
.
(I'm assuming that is Andrew's 'tough guy' face.)
.
.
.
Anyone want to go fishin'?
