Flyfisherman. Love steelhead fishing on the Rogue and N. Umpqua. A friend build for me a Tatman 17 1/2' x 54" that I used for the last 23 years but now it leaks and is not probably fixable. Just bought a nearly finished Don Hill 17'.
Boats I own:
Doh Hill 17'. Old Tatman 17 1/2' x 54".

Hi Bryan.....Great to hear from you and very glad you got so many good years out of the old Tatman! Awesome you found a new boat for a reasonable price! Probably money well spent instead of trying to fix the old one. Would love to see a couple pictures of the new boat if you have a chance to post.
I think the anchor system like in the picture you sent is fine, definitely would need an anchor bang plate on the outside of transom like in the picture.
All is well here. I have started a drift boat building business. Something I have always wanted to do and finally have the time. My website is www.woodriverboats.com. I currently have orders for two boats to be built this winter so am happy about that.
I see Rector around from time to time and yes, he seems busy with his family. Say hi to Gary Shelton next time you are wetting a line with him. Thanks for getting in touch with me Bryan and all of my best to you and family.
