What a wonderful boat you have Brian! When i saw your Hindman boat, I thought I recognized that wonderful 1940's Hindman line. Keep up the great work! Yours, tom

I thought I recognized that boat description from the Caddis Fly Blog. Are you going to be in the parade or attending the show? If so you can check out my oars then.

Cool - you're making great progress... the little keys I added are mostly decorative and partly functional - they do add some protection to the chine/rib joint... I fiddled around with it until I found something I liked and spent soooo much time cutting just the right angles on those little guys...
Thanks for the comments on the Bar - I'll let you know how it works.

Brain... you gonna float the boat in the Boat Parade before the Boat Festival on the 25th - hope so... we need another "classic" boat in the line-up. Should be fun... and dry, I hope.

Woody Hindman had a little metal plate with his name on it which I've seen in several old boats. By memory, it was on the right rear handrail behind the guide's seat. I do not know if these plates were on all of his boats.

I did not see your reply until this morning. I'm still trying to learn this site. It's a bit different for me.

Man, looking for a trailer and getting what probably is a Woody Hindman. I wonder if we'll ever know. Of course mine would have been the plans and yours, The real deal!

Thank you for the encouragement about going the Boat Show. That might have pushed me up the river to attend.

I hope to see you and your boat at the show in May.

tight lines,

How did you find and come to own your boat.?

I'm looking forward to going to the boat show also and hope to bring my boat. The only hang up is that by the end of winter steelhead season the boat is always looking pretty tired. Maybe I'll get over the feeling that the boat has to be looking like it's a beauty queen. I doubt it.

Hi, Brian,

I love the photos. Keep them coming. You mention that your boat may be an Hindman. That's cool. How many ribs does it have, looks like 10.

I was told (by Cody) when I was picking up my new trailer last year at the wood builder in Springfield that 10 ribs is a very good sign of a Hindman boat.. That shop was Tatman's correct, sold to Randy Dersham of this site? Oh, I'm so confused.

Anyway, I was wondering if you have been given any other clues that your boat my be a Hindman. I'm interested because my boat was built in 68 and I was told that the plans for the boat were given to Leo Cannaday by Hindman earlier when he work for Hindman.

While at Tatmans picking up my trailer, Cody took me into a room that had 5 or six boats. I think two were Hindmans and they looked to be a dead ringer to my 68 McKenzie double ender with a transom. Any clue you could pass on would great.

again..great photos.
