Bozeman Boat Club Gets New Dragon Boat

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

The Montana Vikings Dragon Boat Club in Bozeman, takes to the water in a brand new boat.

The 44 foot long dragon boat comes all the way from China. The hand painted boat's maiden voyage was Thursday on the Hyalite Reservoir.

75 year old, Terry Johnson, founded the club and says the boat came just in time for the Montana Dragon Boat Festival, where they have placed in the top 5 the past two years.

“Our team of just friends and paddling friends and relatives, we got third and fourth place the first two years, we said we are going to get ourselves a dragon boat so we can beat those other guys,” says Johnson

The team has some time to practice with their new boat as the festival is not until Sept. 13 and 14 on Flathead Lake.
