Building the Otter – The Finale

Here is the end of my Building the Otter series.  All the original build pages are contained on a single page now.  Just click here or the tab labeled “The Otter” above.  The newest addition is at the bottom.  Scroll down to read it or read the whole story.

I must admit, I am saddened to finish this.  I poured my heart and soul into that little boat.  I got to enjoy her on the water only twice, but that amounted to merely a tiny fraction of the time I spent building her.  As is so often the case, the journey is at least half the fun.  In this case, the journey is all I have left.  Though I was often discouraged, confused, frustrated and confounded while building her, the memories are precious.

I hope you enjoy the building of the Otter as much as I did, and still do.

Building the Otter – Part XI

I apologize.  I just plain spaced posting new episodes of “Building the Otter”.  Oops.  And this is the perfect time of year to do it too.  Not much else going on.  I promise to finish this out over the next couple of months!

For those looking for more tales of my fishing trips, I am on a really restricted diet and it makes traveling tough.  So far, I’ve lost almost 20 pounds!  You can find more out over on my Being Retired blog.  Good news, it ends next week.  My son has a basketball game at Pyramid Lake High School on February 3rd, so I’m going to fish Pyramid that morning and go watch his game that afternoon.   Look for a report soon after!

Building the Otter – Part 10

OK, time for another episode of everyone’s favorite little boat building story, Building the Otter.  I assure you we are getting down to the end.  Thank God too!  I am as sick of writing these as I was of building the boat itself.  As they say, “You gotta hate it, to finish it.”  Enjoy.
