Local Man Sets Sail In Hand Made Boat

It was a beautiful day to spend some time on the lake, and also for a boat-launching.  Sunday afternoon, George Robertson, launched his brand new bass fishing boat into Lake Palestine.

For most people, that seems common, but for Robertson, it was a special moment.  That's because 17 months ago, Robertson began hand building his bass boat from the ground up.  It's a project, Robertson said, he is very proud of.

"I've enjoyed every minute of the 17 months I've spent on this," said Robertson.  "It was a hobby, it was a labor of love, and I would definitely do it again.  There was not a single minute I didn't enjoy about the whole process."  Robertson said he isn't much of a fisherman, now, be he is definitely going to become one since he has built himself such a nice boat.
