After the fish fry last nite we decided to check out Hooverville Landing and happened upon these two young people heading out on the water.  I spied the little boat and decided to get a picture.  They had just purchased the boat and were trying it out for the first time that nite.  They were headed to a camp on Tunnel.  They had all their gear already in the boat and they both had life jackets on.  It was laying low in the water and by engaging the motor they started taking on water.  They were only a short distance out and made it back safely albeit with wet bottoms.  All we could hear was "oh oh" and they turned around.  They texted their friends who eventually came and picked them up.  Needless to say they will be checking out the capacity of the skiff for future reference.
But what a neat little boat.  I have never seen one like it.

But I do have to apologize to them for our behaviour.  We were laughing as they came back to shore not at them but with them.  We knew they were going to be ok and in no danger and we were ready willing and able to assist them.

I hope to see them out on the Lake in the future enjoying their new toy.  I also got their permission to post these pictures - altho they may be regretting that decision right now.

See Ya Bye
