PINEY FLATS, Tenn. -

A Piney Flats man won a new boat in a contest.

Jim McQueen entered Gander Mountain's Fish Like A Pro Sweepstakes. He won an Elite Bassmaster Angler Dean Rojas' boat.

It features a 2013 Skeeter FX 20 with 250 horse power and a Yamaha motor. The boat is valued at $70,000.

McQueen says when he got the call he thought it was a hoax.
