The shantyboat Dotty’s maiden launch was in Minneapolis, Minnesota July 2014. People asked us back home, ‘You’re going to test the boat before your trip, right?’ and we were like, ‘Yeah, of course — if we have time.’ But we were still working on the boat the day before we left and we didn’t end up having time. So we were going to drop a completely untested boat into one of the largest rivers on the continent.
Thanks to Kai Dalgleish for co-launching the shantyboat with me. Thanks to Alex Stevens for personing the camera during the launch. And thanks to Kevin MacLeod for the peppy ragtime.
