    What a slick setup! :cool2: You can tell this guy really put a lot of thought into this. Here is the description that came with the pic.

    I was going to build the Gazebo on the edge of my dock down by the lake, but I thought I might just as well build
    the deck with floats on it and then I can take it out fishing too. Has 15,000 pound capacity. The deck is 18ft x 18ft
    with 12 plastic foam-filled dock floats that are 4ft x 4ft by 18 inch high and the Gazebo is 10 ft. Hexagon with a
    table and chairs inside. Under the table is my trolling motor so I can take it out to my favorite fishing hole.
    The trolling motor is wireless remote controlled so I can be fishing outside and operate the motor.
    On the top of the table I have a LOWRANCE Fish-Finder with depth sounding sonar and temperature gauge.
    I have 2 electric winches with 40 pound anchors... and I've also built in a water pump so I can clean the fish
    right on the spot. Now I can relax and fish while my wife can sit and relax...


    Very nice! You think he'll have any trouble getting the grandkids to come see him?

    If I lived on the lake front, I would have me one of them. Maybe add a Kitchen and Bathroom. Then I would never have to leave the water again..LOL

    You can do just about anything if you have the money... all that and lakefront property also. He don't have to worry about the IRS, I imagine.

    I would love to have one of those on a lake. Do you have any plans of putting a live well on it

    I'm thinking if he had a grill, a water filter, and a porta pottie, he could stay out there for weeks at a time. I might throw in a generator and a fridge for some of the chilled creature comforts :wink:

    Thanks for sharing. That is a great idea. I would think the trolling motor might have to labor if a wind storm suddenly came up. Sure makes one dream.

    So, whats gonna happen to him when our winds start to move. I don't think a trolling motor is going to counteract the force of the wind. And man, I bet that is one heck of a ticket when the Lake Patrol catches him out in his gazebo without state registration. Think the novelty of it is pretty good, but, it could be expensive. lOL
