Profile Information

Mill Valley, Calif.
About Me:
I'm a 71 y/o guy who built one of Greg Tatman's boats years ago. It is a 17' version in meranti plywood. I followed Greg's instructions and encapsulated it in epoxy, and 6 coats of spar varnish. The boat has always been in my garage under a cover so it's in great condition. Health problems have kept me out of the rowing business, so I'm ready to sell the boat. I'd like to find someone who appreciates being in the prettiest and best boat on the river. Jim
Boats I own:
Farallon 26 for salmon
