May I present TOTS underway. She's a cata-canoe (two canoes, two sheets of plywood) and is quite the sight. TOTS is an acronym for Terror Of The Seas (obviously the creator has a sense of humor) He's a nice fellow...

Another great redneck boat, the thinking man's pilot house. On the hard in Morehead City, but has been sighted (took this with my old Blackberry, so not so artistic)

Got the flowers going on, a green house, tool shed, porta potti head, A/C in the master suite, and a tower for those offshore trips.

This is a real winner

Nothing special. My first boat as a kid was a cement mixing tub I rigged with a sail

Hey, 'Bama's got no monopoly on rednecks. We have some in Maine, too:


In case you missed it, that's a lobster trap hauler on the port side of the car:

I could be wrong, but that looks like a photoshop job there.

If I am wrong...

There was a homeless man I knew in Antigua who built a boat out of lumber and milk bottles. It was sturdy enough that he was able to take tourists out fishing around the island on it. Unfortunately he didn't secure it well before a hurricane blew through, so when I knew him he was back living on the beach, catching fish there for the local restaurants.

We were heading south last year towards St. Augustine. For a few minutes I thought the panga might get a way. Homeland Security won though.
