I assume many of you have seen this but I didn't see it posted here yet. Really quite a video!

I was amazed at how high it rode in the water while swimming.

We've always wanted to go up and boat on Fontana but have never made it with the boat, beautiful lake though.

Had not heard of this yet. Thanks.

Curious title for his posting...

"Uninvited rattlesnake boards our boat on Fontana Lake"

"Uninvited" seems just a little superfluous. Who's going to send an invitation to a venomous snake to board their boat? ouch

funny

An oar or a boat hook would've kept it at bay.

I want to go hunt rattle snake and bring some home to try. Just don't have much time to get out.

Mark, I like your style. When facing a confrontation make sure you have suitable solutions in hand.

Shotty will be easier. Maybe a mossberg 590 mariner to keep it boating related.
