Launching Hattie Belle

A recent email said:  Attached are some pictures of the launching of my shanty boat. She has been constructed over the last 3 years from my own (so called) plans. She is on the upper Mississippi near Red Wind. The interior is still unfinished but the motor and controls are on. A very exciting day for us. She Floats!!!!
