Home Depot boat spotted at Reno in River

Post by Diy89 »

Here is my boat i built last summer. i wanted a boat that fit in my truck and would run on our "river" which is more like a trickle. With the 6.5 hf motor it runs pretty good in 6" of water.
8 feet and 42 inches at the widest. Plywood glue and screws from the ole homedepot. And the checkout lady thought i was crazy.. who would have thought?

Welcome to the forum! Looks like your on the water, and your little boat is running good. The checkout lady at Home Depot would probably think all of us on this forum are crazy. So your in good company here. :P

Yup sure is! Just east of Sparks, down river from the treatment plant. Watch out for those "browns!"
