Olympic National Park & WoodenBoats

Olympic National Park in a DB    Here's the latest adventure in our National Parks in a wooden drift boat chasing steelhead on the Olympic Peninsula on SuperBowl weekend.  Great time to be on the water.  Hope you enjoy this one.

Crater Lake & the Rogue River in a Wooden Boat

All - 

For the latest WoodenBoat adventure we started in Crater Lake and then traced the Rogue River from it's source down to the Wild and Scenic Section.  We put our boats on at the Graves launch-site - one of the lowest levels EVER.  Great trip..... read about the trials of the little wooden boat....…

Rogue River Rapids

I created a little video to help demonstrate the difference between "classes" of rapids for a presentation I recently gave at the WoodenBoat Festival in Mystic, Conn.  Hope you enjoy it - you will probably see some familiar faces in this video of the Rogue River Wild and Scenic Section.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Hello Greg- It was a pleasure meeting you and the others at the Hops and Heritage Festival in Independence yesterday.  And thanks again for the jump.  If you ever want to fish the Trask or Wilson let me know.  I'll host.

Greg as you can see the Diablo Canyon II is nothing like the original Portola.  Thanks for your interest.

Also- have you tried that size dory with 10 foot oars?

Thanks- loved the time on the river-  1500 miles on vans and cars since and still dealing with photos from the trip.  I do get to guide 2 trips tomorrow which should help the withdrawal.  The Canyon is always spectacular, the people made this trip so special.  Could you give me the name of the book you recomended from the recently retired professor in Oregon about building wooden boats..  I need a new project to dream about.   ;0)))

Thanks Greg. What a great site, now it's going to be real tough to get some work done.

Thanks Greg, I'm down on Table Rock Lake. Not originally from here just a transplant. Some great info here. Looking at the possibility of getting a buddy's drift boat and wanted a feel of what I was getting into. -Dave

thanks for the invite, but I must decline. Pretty much all my precious non-commercial boat time is spent on other rivers these days,so unless I have a new (old) boat that I need to try out, and can't talk my boss into paying me to run it (a neat trick when I can manage it), I like to go do rivers I don't know that well.


Here are emails for John and Curt. John rowed the Susie Two for a while, and Curt maintains the remaining Keith Steele boats.

My guess is only a guess, but I'd guess 10-foot oars.
By the time I got to the Dories warehouse, there was nothing there but ten-foot oars.
You should give Martin and/or John Blaustein a call.  They'll actually know the answer!
Or Curt Chang at the Lewiston OARS warehouse--they still have a few of the old Keith Steele boats.

Port Townsend sounds fun. If you run into a fellow named Kit Africa, give him my best.
