How to Make Your Own Hot Tub - Class Afloat Style

First, I just heard people running. Obviously it was Will and Easton, they were coming up to me saying they had signed me up to help with a hot tub, without asking me. I didn’t really get how they wanted to build a hot tub….. on deck…. with ocean water.
