Drivers wonder whether they missed the boat.  They want to know what's going on along County Highway AA outside of Eau Claire.  

A man is remodeling a friend's houseboat. This isn't the first boat Clay Revelle has worked on, but it is the first one he's done in his yard. He says it's a hobby that's taking up a lot of time. When the boat is finished, its extra features will include french doors and a Jacuzzi with a built-in TV and mp3 player.

Revelle says, "The amenities will be over the top. It has a lot of characteristics that you wouldn't even find in your regular home, special effects anywhere down to the sound system to the power unit, and it's green so it's very efficient."

Clay hopes to have the houseboat finished by Labor Day weekend. It will be christened on Half Moon Lake.
