Waters Freeze, Snow Arrives

One of the benefits of aluminum as a hull material is that it can literally be left in a snow bank and emerge unhurt the following spring. And this is how this boat now lies, a few feet outside my front door. I have to do some rearranging inside anyway, but when that is completed I will bring it inside and set it up and start disassembling it, removing the transom wood and unriveting the seats and cleaning and reconfiguring it all so that it will serve me better as a duck boat this fall…
