As some of you will have read in the December newsletter, the most recent jewel from the Image Boats Ltd workshop is an 8.4m Fishmaster owned by Allan & Gail Laurie. Powered by a Suzuki DF250TX, “Logged Out” has a custom design kitchen detailed with macracarpa logged by their company Laurie Forestry Ltd.

Allan sent through this story about a recent fishing trip.

92 year old Allan has been fishing Lake Benmore since it was built in ’65. He reckons a day out on “Logged Out” was the most pleasant day he had ever put in. Catching a few fish and having a toilet facility for, in his words, an aged and weakened bladder, added to the home comforts. Also an opportunity to spend some time at the helm whilst regaling us with stories of fish gone by made for a great day.

Me forgetting to turn the shower off and then turning the fresh water pump on and filling the kettle at the sink at the same time he was in the toilet made for a highly humorous day and one that resulted in some interesting comments over a few beers back at the lodge that night I can tell you!

Thanks Allan for sharing this amusing story!
