husky1

Husky is 40 feet tall and weighs 2.5 tons. The statue was built using one ton of steel, 36 sheets of plywood, 3,500 bolts, 700 pounds of resin and 500 square feet of fiberglass matting. It’s a realistic rendition of a muskie, and the shape was created by carving Styrofoam, which was then covered with fiberglass. A call to the public was made for a suitable name for the giant fish and from the hundreds of entries received the name “Huskie the Muskie” was agreed upon by the committee. The winner was Bill Brabooke, who also included a slogan with the name which said, “Huskie the Muskie says Prevent Water Pollution”
