Glenda, grand-daughter Abby, and I left Montevallo this morning headed to Hales Bar Marina on the Tennessee River for the 4th annual Glen-L Boatbuilders Gathering. I had spent the last few days adding a section onto the skeg of the Knot-So-Fast, hoping to make her track a little straighter. I also had a few places to repair and had hoped to put a fresh coat of paint on, but the skeg work took longer than I expected and the repairs and paint never got completed.
We arrived at Hales Bar about lunch-time and launched at the ramp about a half mile belsow the marina. Abby and I drove the boat back to the marina and Glenda took the truck and trailer back. We tied up at the marina and had lunch, then took a short boat ride upriver for about 6 miles and back.
There are dozens of home-made boats here of all shapes and sizes, some from as far as way as Canada!
Here are some pictures:
Even on a short outing I caught sight of a beautiful bald eagle. The mountains around the river are amazing. There are already some pretty fall colors in the trees. Abby is enjoying showing off Papa's boat and loves it that people have kept up with our blog.
