Grumman sport boat
Posted by: old_user on Jan-26-11 4:39 PM (EST)
So this past summer driving down the road with my wife I see this old canoe/boat leaning against a fence with a hand painted sign "for sale 150". She says "don't even think about it"....so after a trip to the ATM she helps me load it on top of the car. What a cool boat, three bench seats, narrow enough to paddle, but with oarlocks and stable enough to walk around. Anybody else have one of these, or know much about them????? It a square stern and rated for a 5 hp. So far I have just paddled it around a lake for catching crappie a couple of times.

You're going to love fishing from that. Use the oars. It's much, much easier to solo row a boat of that size than to solo paddle. Also, if you have a companion with you, you can take turns on the oars. One of you can handle the boat while the other fishes, and switch off.

My wife took a photo of that boat upside down under a maple tree on the edge of a lake. There is a thick mist coming off the water. The early morning light gave everything a ghostly look. Its one of those pictures I look at whenever I need motivation because it just oooozes promise of something to come.
I have one, sort of...|
