"There's nothing like a good adventure story! Pair that with a how-to manual and you've got gold. Robnoxious' new book, Unsinkable: How to build Plywood Pontoons & Longtail Motor Boats Out of Scrap, is both the story of his trip down the Missouri River on a homemade boat and how to do so yourself! Here the author of Shut Up and Love the Rain, Awesome Future, and The Strange Voyage of the Leona Joyce brings a little slice of Huck Finn to 2012 as he and friends take to the Big Muddy in their unsinkable, ever-ready craft The Snowball. Watch as Rob and Co. encounter wild rednecks and Lord of the Flies-esque
river islands, sublime sunsets and deathly storms. It's an exciting
rollercoaster of a ride but Rob's front-of-book schematics make it seem
totally possible for the lay person. Rob's adventure story/DIY guide
combo-punch brings a lot to the table and you'll be carting this tome
around 'til it andyou are waterlogged and sunbaked!"
