That's a damn impressive shot from the 2nd story of the old Burn's Lumber Yard building. You must have 10 lb testicles to climb to the 2nd story. That old building was pretty rotten by the 1970s. The Apache is another one of the great ones from Burger Boatworks. It goes to show you that Steven Avery isn't the only bad ass thing to come out of Manitowoc,Wi. There's a certain boatyard there that's a legendary bad ass on the Great Lakes. http://www.fishtug.com

When Burger built all those boats in the 30's and 40's, I bet they figured they would be all be back in sooner or later for some maintenance or repair. 70 + years and not one of them ever had to go back in. They certainly were built to last. You know the old saying among fishermen in our parts is " A Burger boat turns a bad day into a good Day".
