I’ve had this boat for about 20 years. I’ve been wanting to use it in a shot since I started doing this 3 years ago. I’ve modified it a bit over the years, quite extensively actually before putting it back mostly to its stock build. I’ve never had the opportunity of a puddle, or a stream where I could use it. But, FINALLY!! It’s not an ice breaker, but it’ll do. The boat launch is a mod I did – it lifts up and swings back onto the deck.
