To answer any further questions, no it is not a pontoon boat. Say hello to The Singing Hobo! #shantyboat
At one time the shantyboat culture was widespread on Arkansas' rivers. Folks lived on the boats year-round and often made a living off the river. It's all about gone now, but Pendleton near the lower end of the Arkansas River still has some boats. Some here were featured in the movie "Mud." I'll be staying on one in September for an alligator hunt. #shantyboat#vanishingcultures#boats#arkansasriver#pendleton
Fresh paint job. Taking submissions for a name. #shantyboat
So, this is the weather, but this is the prize. I'm setting off for Cheshire in the rain this afternoon to tow back Loki. She is a 1955 prototype amphibious caravan, soon to be Eddie's bedroom / music studio.
In a race against the weather, I finished signwriting Loki last night. The design is based on Eddie's concept of a salmon encircled by a snake - inspired by the stories of Loki, the shape-shifting Norse god of mischief. I am pleased that colour-wise Loki and Megan C now look like they belong together.
