Crawfish boats… crawfish, are like tiny lobsters, that live in swamps, marshes, and ponds and are trapped like minnows.

December 12th, 2017 by admin


These little crafts, heirs to the old Cajun swamp-going boats but with the benefit of generations of creativity and modern materials, are constructed both to glide along the top of a flooded field and to ride easily along dry roads, even going along the side of the highway toward the next crawfish field. No two of these boats are exactly alike because they’re not mass-produced in factories. Instead, they’re just made in the area where they’re needed by a handful of men who know how to build machines.

An engine operates a hydraulic pump and motor to propel a metal wheel that extends beyond the boat. Metal cleats are welded to the wheel, which is mounted to the rear to push the boat in shallow water. The hydraulic steering can be operated with foot pedals, leaving the driver’s hands free to empty and rebait traps.


there is even a good book about them

The Amazing Crawfish Boat chronicles the development of an amphibious boat that transformed the Louisiana prairies into alternating fields of aquaculture and agriculture. In seeking to understand how such a machine came into being, John Laudun describes the ideas and traditions that have long been a part of the Louisiana landscape and how they converged at a particular moment in time to create a new economic opportunity for both the rice farmers who used them and the fabricators who made them.

was given a boat he didn’t need, so he made a car. Only a gearhead would do such a preposterous thing

there is a paddle down by the running board,

a piece of a busted Chevy crank for an anchor

an old life vest for use as a seat cushion

Finally, the restoration in complete, and a 2nd PT boat is once again roaring over the waves.

March 12th, 2017 by admin

The boat operated in the Mediterranean along the coasts of southern France and Northern Italy during World War II, conducting more than 77 offensive patrols and operations. PT-305 fought in 11 separate actions and sank three German ships during its 14-month deployment.

After WWII, PT-305 acted as a civilian tour boat in New York Harbor and a fishing charter, while falling into disrepair. The New Orleans museum purchased the boat in 2007 and since then, a volunteer team of 202 people worked 105,000 hours at its restoration pavilion to get PT-305 back up and running.

Thanks Steve!

the Half

September 21st, 2016 by admin

A custom-built, half-sized antique curved dash Oldsmobile weighing 400 lbs., whose license plate read “HALF” built by Dick Francis of Philadelphia in his bicycle shop. It had a Cushman engine, two speeds forward, one reverse, transmission with automatic clutch.

It could be swung over the side on davits, so that the travelers could putt-putt around various ports of call.
