IT WAS one hell of a Christmas present and one hell of a boat. Echuca’s Brian Cowie and Kylie Williams are smiling from ear to ear after they won a nation-wide competition through Ranbuild.
All they had to do was buy a shed.
‘‘We didn’t even know we went in the draw for the boat,’’ Kylie said. ‘‘And when we got the phone call to say we had won we were just beside ourselves.’’
They bought a shed from Echuca Sheds and Garages and they were even more excited when they saw the boat for the first time on Thursday.
Their children Cooper and Emma jumping straight in the drivers seat, even though it was parked in the Ranbuild Echuca yard.
‘‘It is so much bigger than expected,’’ Kylie said.
‘‘Some of our friends were asking if it was a tinny and it definitely isn’t.’’
The young family won a Quintrex 590 Freestyler and they can’t wait to get it wet.
