Now thats cool !
Its what Americans do
That guy could use about 18 inches more freeboard.
O/T. A Wiener is trying to ban public nudity in San Fransisco. How Ironical.
No visible duct tape?
Is that JcLady et al at Lake Altoona?
Fur, I’m not sure if you think there is something wrong with this image.
For myself, I think it looks like a marvelous family enjoying a marvelous day on a marvelous lake somewhere in a marvelously free America.
Given that a lot of evidence today is pointing us towards a grim tomorrow no longer filled with the wherewithal to enjoy halcyon days. What you are today calling a “mess” is very likely to be called a longed for and unattainable “freedom” tomorrow.
How the hell did you get a pic of my family vacation?
Let me guess, these guys are from New Jersey and figured it’d be faster moving the family house then waiting on FEMA for food, gas, shelter, electricity or water.
Kairn, Not safe. One big boat wake, it’s all bad. will not survive big water. That’s the point.

Would have appreciated a little more explanation from Fur exactly what it was he was in furring here (sorry couldn’t resist that pun
Maybe I’ve become too sensitive to people knocking (or seeming to knock) recreational activities such as boating, RVing, dirt bike riding, and motor sports. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these past times and am so sad about the prospect of us all losing the ability to even put something like this on a lake. I thought maybe Fur was revealing himself as one of those spoil sport kanockers. If he isn’t, I hope he will beg my pardon for misunderstanding his too succinct meaning…grrrrr.
My first impression of this set-up was not that it could be easily swamped. Maybe yes? Maybe no?
Redneck houseboat. What’s the problem?
Kairn, No Fur was exposing himself as an urbanite that understands specific gravity. In a former life, I was a small time tournament bass fishermen. I think I’ve seen it all, including a couple suicide attempts off a 20 foot high bridge. You just wanted to tell them you need something much higher. I’m cheering for you.
That guy’s a jerk. I swam nearly half a mile to reach that damned thing, and he didn’t even have snow cones or ice cream bars.
Cheering for me in what way? I’m confused.
Infurring for the win.
Naa, my title is one of endearment. It looks like something my dad would concoct, and that would be a good thing. But we would still name it the Loch Mess.
Kairn, No No No. I was referring to the idiots that were trying to kill themselves off the high dive while I was fishing a tournament. Sorry if I wasn’t clear.
However I always do cheer for you. Good conservative values.
Looks normal to me.
I don’t know….that could easily be my bros and an unexplained weekend adventure.
Fur, thanks for helping me out here. I know this thing looks kind of kooky. But it’s so darn quintessentially American, Yankee ingenuity and all. I’m relieved to hear you saw it the same way. I apologize for being overly sensitive – just mourning my beloved America.
Brad, thanks for the explain.
@Brad – It could be a couple pontoons with a deck holding them together. Wouldn’t swamp or tip unless the water was really BIG
venturaguy, I’ve seen some big shit when you least expect it. I have all the respect in the world for large bodies of water.
That’s a great idea! I got a 30 footer winny bago burning a hole in my backyard. I’ll just need an outboard motor and…..
Who am I kidding. I live in a blue state that would fine me for not getting a permit to build it.
Frosteetoes, do you have the babies arm holding an apple too?
Hmmmm. That’s some interesting recycling. Who’s frying the perch?
The guy’s livin’ the dream: sunshine, fresh air, all the fresh fish you can eat, a bed with a breeze blowing through the window, and a new adventure waiting for him around every point. Ah-oh….better not let Obumble hear somebody is happy; he’ll sent Big Sis to do a rectal exam on him…and she doesn’t wear a glove!
Boobie the Rocket Dog
A friend of mine built something similar fifty years ago from two large aircraft fuel pods welded together with a deck in between and a canopy. The living quarters were in one pod, the diving equipment, etc., in the other. He built it to withstand moderately rough afternoon ocean water, 2-5 ft.
He and the craft were local legends.
8 or 10 55-gallon drums will float just about anything. That’s how I plan to leave America with all my shit if things get too bad.
What lake is that? It always make for an iteresting dive when you find goofy stuff on the bottom.
There’s this thing called a water-line. I’m not seeing it.

Homer had to agree with Al Gore, this was the worst year for ice fishing ever.
