"Do not do class 3 until you learn the basics of drift boat handling.  It is way different than kayaking, where you use speed to navigate.  A drift boat primarily uses braking to avoid obstacles.  There has to be something on the…"

David Jensen replied to Scott L. Carlson's discussion Tatum 17 for whitewater
"Probably a matter of personal preference.  I have had 4 or 5 Keith Steele 16' woodies over the past 40 years;  all have the same open line deck as Greg's boats.  They have worked well on the McKenzie, Rogue, Owyee, Umpqua,…"

"I assume it is a Tatman.  If so, it is an excellent boat for all Oregon rivers, and class 3 and 4 included."

David Jensen replied to Gregg Maddock's discussion Does anyone know the owner of this boat?
"Don's shop was in Springfield, Oregon.  I believe he passed sometime ago.  I do not know if he sold his business.  I bet Randy Dersham and/or Greg Tatman would know."

David Jensen replied to Gregg Maddock's discussion Does anyone know the owner of this boat?
"From the photo, it appears to be a Keith Steele or Steve Steele.  The oar lock blocks appear different.  If it is a Steele, the Coast Guard plate on the bow will give the serial number.  If you call Steve Steele boats in Lebanon, OR,…"

David Jensen replied to Katie Lewis's discussion Boat advice
"Katie, This is a nice little boat, but I agree with Rick, it appears to be a sailboat.  The best bet would be a drift boat, and if it would just be you and your son, one smaller than the 16' standard would be fine.  There is, or was,…"
