Mike Rowe, from Dirty Jobs, is really into boats, which makes complete sense. Even as he was hosting the show, he was also narrating another show, Deadliest Catch.

His love of boats is immediately obvious. The star of Dirty Jobs narrates the detailed intricacies of the boats on the show elegantly. Moreover, it appears that the television host is fascinated with the mode of transportation. He likes them so much that he decided to build his own tug boat.

While it might be too late for Suez Canal and Evergreen puns as the ship has sailed, the Dirty Jobs host must have been chomping at the bit. His tug boat must have sparked many ideas for the talented Rowe. Consequently, he took to Instagram to show off his new boat.

Mike Rowe captions the post in a simple yet somehow still braggadocios way. “I built a tugboat today. More later.”

So, for those who are as enthusiastic about boats as the Dirty Jobs host, keep an eye on his Instagram for more updates on his tug boat. It looks to be a thing of beauty, and you probably don’t want to miss any more pictures of the vessel.

Hopefully, for the sake of those who build boats for a living, he is being facetious with his caption. It would be utterly insane if he did indeed build the tug boat in a single day.

Mike Rowe Hosting “Dirty Jobs” and Narrating “Deadliest Catch”

Mike Rowe has always been doing new and interesting things. For the Dirty Jobs host, this is just the latest in an exploration of interests for him.

But, when he was starting Dirty Jobs with the Discovery channel, he was also working on another show. That other show is Deadliest Catch, which is still enjoying his work on it.

Initially, he was supposed to be an on-camera host for Deadliest Catch, but when the two shows were green-lighted, he had to choose between them. Reportedly, Discovery told Rowe that he could only appear on-camera in one of the shows.

“We can’t have you telling us stories about six dead fishermen on camera and making a fart joke with your arm in a cow’s [behind].”

Nonetheless, he chose to be on-camera for Dirty Jobs and has certainly enjoyed the success of it. Now, he continues to merge his boat passion with real-life in the form of building a tug boat.
