Hank's on Board is the one hundred-eighty-seventh episode of King of the Hill. It was first aired on September 18, 2005. The episode was written by Sivert Glarum and Michael Jamin, and directed by Allan Jacobsen.


After Hank and Bill discover that Dale and Boomhauer take secret fishing trips every summer, Hank thinks that they have been trying to avoid Bill. But, when the guys open up a vacation to include their relatives he discovers that Boomhauer and Dale are trying to get away from Hank because he is too bossy. When Hank cuts loose, the guys get into big trouble just as Hank thought, stranded in the ocean next to their fishing boat with no way to climb back up to it. Hank's take-charge nature saves the four in the end, as he devises a means to summon help so they can be rescued.

Meanwhile, Bobby and Peggy search the beach for buried treasure, using a metal detector Bobby purchased using the family's grocery money, but soon run afoul of the local beachcombers.
