I had the Out West boat at that show in 2008 after meeting and talking with Roger Fletcher at a fly fishing show in Seattle. Every other boat that year was a vintage drift boat or a new, traditional McKenzie style boat, and I really felt out of place. I think they were looking for traditional examples, so I haven't been back. We have taken it to Depoe Bay one year and to the Wooden Boat Show at Port Townsend twice. I appreciate your kind comments!
