Just gotta say, Peppy, that's one of the sweetest little aluminum skiffs I think I've ever seen.  Who knew you could do something like that with a tin boat...  BTW, we used to have a 14' aluminum boat like that when I was a kid and it was a real piece of work.  Ran it with a 25HP Johnson in the ocean fishing... and I mean OCEAN.  Caught a 110 lb tuna once in that thing.  While the tuna was on the line - sounding - (for non-fisher-folk, tuna like to do that - i.e., go straight down and just sit there like they were truly stuck on the bottom), anyhoo, while this tuna was sounding under the boat (we were in 3K feet of water), a shark grabbed the prop and stopped our little outboard dead.  We did finally get the fish in the boat.  It was probably 10 inches thick at the middle and after it slipped under the seat, barely fit, it started to jump and flutter.  For those who've ever caught a tuna, again you know it vibrates like a son-of-a-gun after it's caught and before it dies.  We thought for sure the rivets were going to start popping and the boat was going to come apart.  It didn't.  Boat held just fine, and we had tuna for 5 or 6 months...  

And.... if you think that's just a fish story, think again.  I'd swear on a stack of Bibles that every word is true.   8)

Anyway, back to your boat, any reason why you didn't paint the transom?  Love the bow seat though..  Gotta come to Canada for a ride.  :P

Holy frig-moly June! Whatta story! 110 lb! Must've been as long as the boat! Wowza!

Anyway, back to your boat, any reason why you didn't paint the transom?

Laziness. Mine and my boat painter friend. One of the reasons I was able to entice him into the gig was that we weren't going to paint it. Plus a filthy oar needs a dirty ass.

*blush* thanks! I'm really keen on the beautification of ugly old tubs. The next one might be The Red Hot Mama- red, pink, and white. It's too much fun to stop. I'll need a couple years to enjoy this one though. And to come up with some groovy lines...

Georgian Bay. I'm going to look that up on the map. I bet It's beautiful up their.

Pile in!! It really is beautiful, just too damn cold. And not nearly enough interesting aquatic life as you guys have in the ocean. And much slower tides.

Hmmmm....having thought about this comment for a while, I'm 140 lbs and I'm not anywhere close to as long as my boat. Guess I haven't a clue what a 110 lb fish looks like. I did catch an 60 lb halbit once ( out west, not Georgian Bay) so I guess it'd be twice that.

Margaret! Girls aren't supposed to spam!

And no wonder you have problems with relationships. Who wants to get text messages from someone who inserts web links into everything they say.

Now that I'm thinking about it, if Senator Weiner put web links on his underwear, maybe no one would have responded to his twitters and he'd still be a sex pervert in Congress and not a sex pervert in a rehab center.

Relax Gene, I'll let her spam me. Turns me on when girls talk all underline-y. Waddya say Margaret? Wanna go on a sexy boat cruise in the Filthy Oar? Maybe see if we can find any world of warcraft gold?

The weather finally smartened up. Been out a bunch.


The whole famdamily.


tried out the dodger. Well we have to. While the weather is nice the water is still freaking cold. Average water temperature of lake huron is 59 degrees f.


Nice when you stop anyway. I'm really looking forward to the 8 weeks left of summer. Stoopid Canada.

*edit* I found our camera! Whew! Thought it went overboard. Good thing it's waterproof cause it's been splashing around the 'bilge' all weekend.


I painted the stripe between the black and white. I was going to use pinstripe but instead I spent an afternoon. We just happened to pick a colour to paint the shed and it turned out that it matched the boat perfectly.




Some across the road pictures. Just need some pin stripes outside and 'The Filthy Oar' lettering on the side.

59????  Now that's ridiculous  :o  We were in the pool today complaining that it was 88 and rather "cool".  I like 90 better. 

Nice looking boat there.  Looks like a great way to spend summer with the family.  You gonna keep it a while?  Or sell and find yourself another project?

Keep in mind June, 59 is the average surface temperature for all of lake Huron. Georgian Bay, where it can be 100' deep 20' from shore it'll be colder than that. Someone said on the dock this weekend they measured 41. I choose to believe they read it wrong or something. But the actual number is irrelevant, 41 or 59 you've got about 10 minutes before you're hypothermic.

I'm in no hurry to sell this boat. I really like it and it suits our needs fine. Thats not stopping me from thinking about the next on though. I'm not exactly sure what we'll go with next. I really like the empty/open tin boat to start with. Maybe I'd do that again? Red and white, 'The Red Hot Mama'? Build it into a bow rider with a rear wrap around bench?

My friend's a designer and made me up this-





I'm sending it off to get it vinyl sticker-ified. Also I'm going to see about getting it embroidered on a matching set of ascots.

We've had a pretty awesome few weeks. The local marina let us park for free during my holidays


we got a bit of nice weather so we got out a bunch-

Still it's always cold one way on Georgian Bay. The local newspaper saw us out and about and made us famous-


watch out for the Santa Clause parade! Then we'll really hit the big time.

I've been pissing around with the dodger. I took out the lower bar (that seemed important at the time, but really didn't do anything but look cool) and replaced it-

with dingle balls! I can't wait for them to fade and fall off. Will add to the 'filth' aspect.
