    Well done. Sounds like you got a workout in but proved the concept. I am sure each time out will be more enjoyable than the last as you fine tune the craft. -J

    I got the photos that my dad took of the launching of the Gute Fahrt.











    Be dangerous, but good.

    Looks like the maiden voyage was a success! It's always good to have a first mate along for the trip. Add a trolling motor and cruise the lake.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    This is an awesome project! Love the name and thanks so much for posting all the pictures/videos. Keep them coming! My son (5 years old) and I are reading Huck fin at night and he's in his room building Lego models of his design for a raft with three hammocks (mom has to come with too).

    Extraordinary stuff here and you did an awesome job. Did it end up feeling stable enough for your son? I bet a bigger one with the whole crew hanging would make an epic vacation. I can see it now..floating down the Mississippi.



    I hate working.

    I say this with all the love and respect a born and breed southern gentleman can muster...that is sooooo redneck...and I love it.

    You rock dad. Those boys will not soon forget the adventure of the construction and use of this little bit of madness. Well played sir, well played.

    No wound? No scar?
    Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
    And piercèd are the feet that follow Me.
    But thine are whole; can he have followed far
    Who hast no wound or scar?

    Excerpt from a poem by Amy Carmichael
    Missionary to orphans in India.
    She suffered much -- and bore much eternal fruit.

    There are Crock Pots and there are Microwaves. The world does microwaves; God does crock pots.

    Yes, it was surprisingly stable. He and I both were able to stand up and walk from end to end without much wobbling.

    I take that as high praise! Thank you very much! =)

    Thankd for the Pics. It looks like a pretty low draft and stable for flat water. What a fun time for the family. -J
