Insane indeed! I went on one something like that in Wisconsin Dells, it was a 1500hp jet boat ride, I wanted one of them. Although these guys are alittle more crazy!

Yowser, I would take it to Canvas craft and have them put a tent on it and you could sleep in it too and fish out the back. Get to those back waters in a hurry. Sand bar! What sand bar?

I could have used that on the river last night with all water sitting on the ice.

Now that would be a great overnight boat on the river. Looks like Darren will be traveling in style.

But you may get cat slime in it. What then?

I wanna know how they don't hit something, that was nuts. You would be for sure traveling in style, and who cares about the cat slim. I think that should be the name of the boat. Great name.

I think I would rather go to the bar and look for the drunkest guy there and ask for a ride home than ride that boat. lol

I wonder if their insurance company has ever seen that video? I expect their insurance premiums would go up about about 1000% if they ever do see it.

I wouldn't get me in that boat for that boat ride for anything. If that driver miscalculated at all in those narrow canyons at that speed and hit those rocks he would dump a lot of injured people into that swift water. That is a catastrophy waiting to happen. As Forest Gump said "Stupid is as stupid does".

Watch the video where they beach one of those, and the tools they use to free it.....would be fun but if you did get stuck you'd need the whole BP League to de-beach your new red whale. smile

If we don't beach your boat at least once this summer, John, then we're doing something wrong.

I beached my boat upstream from Jordan this year. Actually it was in sept, the water was cool and the temps outside were only in the high 40s or low 50s, so it was slightly less than ideal but not a killer.

Andy,

That's worth 10 bucks. I'll have to see what I can get you and John to do for 10 bucks this summer. :-)

One of the keys looks to be not slowing down. I think he you drop it on that sand bar there you might have a lot of pulling/digging to get it out smile

Wow Dark, those outboards must have a LOT of torque to push through that mud and crud. That looks sweeeet!

This is a family site. smile

Well see how the ice skipping goes today.

The first open water channel of 2009..........might be too early, but it's not going to keep me from tiring.

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
