Redneck Boats

With summer officially ending this week and the arrival of much-welcomed autumnal temperatures and colors, people living in colder climes have either already removed their boats from the water or will probably be doing so soon. One of my younger readers (Hi Ben!) asked me this past week to put out some more redneck pictures. With those two thoughts in mind, I decided this might be a good time to do a post on rednecks boats. In earlier posts I've shown examples of just how much ingenuity and imagination there is among rednecks.

Rednecks Catfish Bait

As I searched online for better, clearer versions of some of the pictures I had in my files, I ran across a website that sells a special soap used as bait to catch catfish. (I didn't even know you could catch catfish with soap!) One thing in particular that I found amusing is that the company calls its own product Rednecks Catfish Bait Soap. Learn more about it by going to http://www.catfishbaitsoap.com

Of course, the arrival of cold weather does not keep some rednecks from doing things with boats. Here's a redneck ice fishing boat.

If you need to transport your boat to the water, you need a boat trailer. Here's an example of necessity's being "the mother of invention."

Once you get the boat to the water, you need to know how to use a ramp to get it from the trailer into the water.

Since buying a boat can be rather expensive, some people decide to build their own boats. All kinds of designs are available, but I've not seen this one before.

That "boat" would also be great at your destination, if you're planning a picnic!

Here's a more elaborate design for a homemade boat — a pontoon boat, I guess.

Some people dream of owning a houseboat. Here are several different ways rednecks have made that dream come true.

Here's the same houseboat from a different angle.

Here's a variation on that same theme....

Here's one with an upper deck. The woman on the swing at the back of this "houseboat" is cruising along in style.

This one could possibly be called a redneck yacht with that air conditioner in the window.

Some rednecks want a simple boat only for fishing.

Others prefer a boat suitable for recreational activities, like tubing.

Here's the famous Canadian redneck Red Green with his sports utility boat (SUB?)....

If a speedboat is what you want, this redneck's boat looks like the ultimate.

Are you a boating enthusiast? Have you ever seen anything like any of these pictures in your area?

    Great post! Some of those boats definitely show a good deal of creativity. I wonder how quickly Magellan and his crew could have circumnavigated the globe if they’d had a boat like the one in that last picture?

    Yikes! Yikes! Yikes! Yikes! Yikes! Yikes! Yikes! I kept saying this! They guy who had the ramp thing backwards may be known as a “wetneck!”

    @Laura As much as we make fun of rednecks, you have to applaud their inventiveness. Magellan might have had trouble with the needs to refuel many times, mid-ocean….

    @Carrie Maybe, as a sailor, he was merely a little wet behind the ears.

    @Katy Glad you got a laugh out of the post. I explained at the beginning of a recent post – Random Funny Pictures – where I get a lot of “my stuff.” People just send me lots of very funny things that I file away, tidy up, and post when the time seems right.

    There are actually companies that rent out floating platforms for you to drive your RV onto just like the one in the eighth photo. Usually they are found on the little “big” rivers like the Tennessee or Ohio. Big Muddy (the Mississippi) is just too dangerous for that sort of thing!

    One of the inflatable companies (Zodiac, I think) makes the souped up boat in the last photo. Not truly redneck in my book, unless you consider the fact that I think I want it!

    @John That’s interesting about the boats for transporting RV’s. Makes sense. In that picture, though, it looks as if they’re set up for more than short-term transport, with the lawn chair sitting there. I found the last picture of the souped-up boat on a site with other distinctively redneck pictures. It is a pretty nice boat compared to most redneck boats, but somehow how you can almost hear the redneck boat enthusiast yelling out from that boat the infamous “last words of a redneck” — “Hey, watch this!” 🙂

    @Dahv I just found your comment in the spam folder, of all places! I’m sorry I didn’t notice it sooner. Thanks for your encouragement on the funny picture posts — I’m glad you like them.
