Never again will brothers Andrew and Kevin find themselves at the perfect remote fishing spot without a boat to sail on. This weekend, they’re creating the ultimate all-in-one-camper-plus-boat solution by converting the truck cap on the back of their pickup into a boat. The boys better hope, though, that their wacky “bro-at” idea holds water, or else they’ll be swimming with the fishes, instead of catching them.

Project Steps

Step 4

The key to a successful fishing expedition is being in the right place at the right time. In our case, most of the good fish were in the next lake over, which was not accessible by boat and difficult to access even by road. To get to the lake, we either had to drive with a boat in the back of the pick-up or come up with a creative solution. Our first thought was to load the cottage’s old wooden boat onto the pick-up. But as you can see that didn’t turn out so well. Some crazy plans and a bit of lateral thinking later, we came up with the idea of an all-in-one-camper-plus-boat solution. The added advantage of this build is that we could drive to the lake the night before, camp overnight and be ready when the fish were biting first thing in the morning. As with all our projects, planning is the first step. This project became extra fun when we decided to look for a stash of World War II beer that had been off-loaded in the lake by the airforce… or so the story goes.
