|John Simms builds a boat . . .
and a boat house and a trailer.
Photos by Grant MacLaren, most made 10/29 at a dinner in John's boat house.
John asked Larry to sell him Larry's favorite boat. Larry said "no," but asked "why not build your own? I'll be your consultant. So John built a boat house -- with a living room and shop. It's about five miles from the lake, so a 50,000 pound trailer will be needed to launch and retrieve the boat annually.
The boat is well under way. John's son is a welder, so the cabin and canopy is being framed in aluminum.
Lots more interesting stories. Some told by John (with Power Point support) at this ACBS dinner in the new boat house.
