Last year, the MeatEater team put together a web series titled “Das Boat“. The concept: Give 10 anglers one day to modify the craft as they see fit, and take it out on the water for some fishy shenanigans. As Das Boat Season 2 begins production, the original boat from Season One has just gone up for auction in Bozeman, MT. The proceeds from the auction will go to support MeatEater’s Land Access Initiative, a program designed to create more public access to hunting and angling opportunities.

“Aug 11 BOAT FOR SALE (Bozeman) $10,000 OBO
We are reluctantly parting ways with this one-of-a-kind, totally badass, v-hull, an aluminum masterpiece. This boat is guaranteed to catch you more fish, outrace other much faster boats, and impress all of your friends. The world’s finest anglers have graced the somewhat sketchy casting deck —and you could be next.
If purchased you will receive Das Boat, the motor, a self-stabilizing, removable, charcoal grill added by Chef Jesse Griffiths, the collective good mojo of all of the other anglers who have fished on it, and a bunch of other stuff. Trailer included. NOT responsible for wheel bearing failure.”
