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.
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.

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?

After eating, do amphibians have to wait one hour before getting out of the water?
