Lowering the TNT

12 July 2005

Here are some photos of our new TNT at Charleston Lake. My son (Aaron who is in all the photos) and I began building this boat in January 2005. We launched the boat in May 2005. I remember my father building a Minimax with me when I was about the same age and just a few years ago after about 35 years of storage we pulled it out for a couple of more years. Experiencing building a boat is something that can last a long time and something worth passing on to those lucky enough to have the chance. The materials have come a long way from what I remember. With epoxy inside and out and a layer of fiberglass, it should prove to be very durable. We picked the TNT because it was compact and also had great lines. The boat has proven to be this and more!
