Default Proud Dad moment - My boy took first place in raingutter regatta

Preston built this little boat for the raingutter regatta. It wasn't the cleanest, shinyest, or best looking, but it was fastest! He was undefeated in the entire pack tonight, and took first place over many bigger kids and pro looking boats. His little rat rod catamaran flew! I was totally unexpecting this. And, he was a great sport about it. The kid sure makes me proud.

Wood only lasts so long unless properly preserved.

Sorry, I wanted a pic with him holding the boat and he was asleep last night. And yes, we went out to Dairy Queen to celebrate.

I would say what kind of self respecting dad lets his kid build a competition boat that looks like that.....but he won so I guess I will keep my pie hole shut.






BTW, that is kick ass!!
