This is a Best Butt Ugly Shanty entry...

This is Winnie.  She served us incredibly for 18 seasons... but was finally retired in 2008.  She still serves as a utility shed to this day.  It survived 2 high speed collisions, and had to be brought back from the dead after a Break and Enter in the early 90's.  She definately didn't look pretty, with a patchwork of fix's and paint that seen better days, but we certainly pulled alot of fish out of her, and for that we will be forever thankful  ;)

Here is my first entry is for the Tricked Out category:

This shanty folded down measures 5'x7'. Each side may be opened by it self or both at the same time which makes it 15' x 7' with room for eight, 12 if four are kids. The complete set up time is about 1 min and take down as well. Under the seats and center is enough storage room for at least that many peoples equipment and coats, ect... once it's warmed up inside. There are easy storage quick access rod holders in four spots that will hold 16 rods. And when the snow is deep the six inches of clearance would make it a bear to pull so you just hit a switch an the hydraulic skis raise it to twelve inches.





My next enty will come after this weekend when I get some better picks.

Would this qualify as a shanty?  It sure is but ugly.

She will do about 85mph with the afterburners on!


And at slower speeds is stable enough to cook a nice meal in.


Tight lines and safe fishing.

It was a learning mistake with an old heater and duct work. The heater has been replaced. But it looks like our shack has a jet engine on it so we kept part of the pipe. It gets alot of looks and questions.
Tight lines and safe fishing.

Best Butt Ugly Shanty
« Reply #18 on: Oct 16, 2009, 09:25 PM »


Here's my submission, my Pack Shack.  Built about six years ago
I used to bleed green and gold but I am a Favre fan more than a Packer fan.
Now to top it all off, it's too cold to repaint it Purple and Yellow.
So I get to look at this ugly shack all year.
