  2. If Gilligan and crew would have set sail in this version the the Minnow they would never had gotten stranded.

  3. Fishing in the Milwaukee river in 1957. It was an open sewer.

  4. Looks like a motor on each side, I guess to keep the thing going in a straight line. Be interesting if one of the motors fails, have to do some serious adjusting to steer. Or you might end up like people in our government, continually going in circles.

    1. Maybe it was not a flat bottom boat. Might have had a V-shape to keep it going straight. Maybe.

  6. Look at that console: All that for twin outboards, unless there's a Warp drive in there somewhere.....

    1. Looks like screens for SONAR and RADAR. Probably a couple of wire-guided fish too.

      At the least, a mini-bar.
