The three men, who weren't about to let their spare time go to waste, created a unique water vehicle and made the headlines.
Three men turned an old caravan into a fully operating boat so that they could go fishing.
The men were pictured sailing their converted caravan on Lake Tarawera near Rotorua.
A photographer that was on the scene captured the moment that the boat/caravan owner took to the water in his newly designed caravan. He set off on the water to enjoy the beginning of the fishing season, casting his line from the front of his caravan.
Fishing lines and nets can be seen off of the back of the caravan and the windows have been completely taken out.
The three men who created the unique water rafter are Matthew Douglas, Darrin Burns and Willy Timmins. Burns had teamed up with his friends after they found the caravan rotting in a paddock, it took them six whole weeks to transform the rotting caravan into a boat.
The caravan-turned-boat can reach a high speed of 15 knots and can be launched from the back of a car.
According to Douglas, who carried out all the welding and fitting, the newly converted caravan was safer on sea than on the road.
In 2015 the same three men made headlines after they converted a Subaru Impreza into an amphibious vehicle that could also be driven on water.
