That's really cool!

My boat is my ark. It's my mobile treehouse and my floating fishing cabin. It's my retreat and my respite. Everyday I thank God I have a boat! -Al

Quite an extraordinary individual.


Oh wow. Now I’m even more impressed. The things some people are able to do just amaze me. I wonder if I would have the same drive to do something like that if I was in the same situation, but deep down I kind of doubt it.

Yes, Thataway is the organizer's boat and he took a group up towards Jacksonville with him after the Hontoon affair.
