Here are actual customer pics from a customer who built one along with
In 1959 I purchased an
original home built “Thing” and ran it for several years on the
Willamette River. Years later it got rotten and subsequently
discarded. Now the Son of the man who originally built it from the
magazine plans in his wood shop in Milwaukie, Oregon works with me
and he helped his Dad build it in 1958. We decided to search for the
plans and if we found them I (an engineer) would upgrade it for two
adults and build it. I bought your disk and building started last
May 25 and it was ready to launch July 20th. You are
welcome to use the photos and my “title” as a former white water
guild River Rat Bob from Oregon. Hope you enjoy the pictures
attached. I am 60 years old but still chasing the dream as you see
from my smile in the boat.
Slick looking ice yacht!
