Ever See a Dugout Canoe Built the Old-Fashioned Way? [VIDEO]

Now, this is the hard way to get a new boat.

This boat is made old-school style through intense work.

Watch as this dugout boat comes to life on camera.

Centuries ago, native people had to use what grew from the land. If you needed something, you made it from natural materials. This included boats.

While this is not your new bass boat laden with fish-finding electronics and GPS, this boat is ultra old-school cool.

First, a huge tree is cut down and the work continues. After much labor, a beautiful dugout canoe is made that will last decades. Luckily for us, it is all caught on camera.

This is how boats used to be made. You will feel lucky that now all we have to do is hit up the local sporting goods store for our boats.
