Aristocraft Jr. Water Test

Last February my son, Henry, and I began construction of a simple plywood boat with the help of the Water Wonderland chapter of the ACBS.  Construction was started at the Grand Rapids boat show and this coming Saturday some of the completed boats will be shown at the Boats on the Boardwalk show in Traverse City.  We put the last coat of paint on Henry’s boat on Saturday morning and we couldn’t wait past Saturday afternoon before putting it in the water.  The boat and motor (a 1 1/2 hp Johnson) both performed flawlessly.
