This boat has been in my family since 1959 and was built for my father by Prince Helfrich--one of the few boats remaining that Prince himself built and thus is extremely rare. It possesses historical significance because of its early design and the builder. Prince was an original collaborator of this design with Woodie Hindman. Prince, a graduate of the University of Oregon, was also one of the founders of the McKenzie River Guides Association in 1931. Prince, not only a renowned guide, but…Continue

What type of apparatus do ya'll have for moving your wooden boat around the shop/garage? Pics most appreciated. TIA.
I am excited to offer the McKenzie boat class again at WoodenBoat School in Maine this July. It's perfect for someone who really wants to build one but doesn't know how or where to start, or is intimidated by the array of skill sets necessary to do the job.
We will build the Hindman 16' Double-ender with transom.
We will start by lofting the boat from a table of offsets, correcting, customizing or idealizing as we go. We'll build all the frames, transom and a rolling-bevel…Continue

Noooo! Had to store the boat outside for 1 1/2 years. Tightly tarped to protect it but somehow water got inside. Now I have mold from stem to stern. Bought one of those "cloth" garages so it is protected but somewhat "open". Looking to move soon. Hopefully will find a place with a shop so I can work on it.
A beauty! $3500.00
Completely re-worked. Includes oars (1extra), anchor, cover, storage box, trailer which has new wheels,lights ,tires. located in Palouse, WA
Get plenty of compliments when you row this beauty down your favorite river. Age forces sale, so the boat needs a new owner. contact Scott@ firstname.lastname@example.org…

I've got the skid shoe off and in the garbage. All the ring nails are pulled out or clipped and back filled. I've epoxied/wood powdered all dings and sanded from bow to where the skid shoe ended. I was able to get that far using 80 grit.
My question is, Just how clean/sanded does the bottom have to be before glassing? From where the skid shoe ended to the transom is being a bear to clean up with 80 grit. So was the bow bottom but i got that done...with…Continue

Most of you folks here aren't in the market for class, but for those of you that are, I just posted my winter offerings. If you want to build a boat, shape an oar, cast custom bronze boat hardware--but don't have the nerve to start out on your own, this might be just the ticket.…Continue

There was a wooden boat on Craigslist and I went to look at it. It was pretty, and the seller said it only leaked a little, that he would not hesitate to take it fishing. That was good enough for me. It looked great on a soggy December afternoon in a dark shed so I bought it. It came with a motor and trailer! I knew I’d sell the motor and that would pay for sand paper and varnish, with cash left over to buy beer to lubricate the sanding and varnishing.

I have a 16' Don Hill drift boat kit I never got around building and would like it to go to a good home and someone to complete it. I have had it stored in my garage for over 10 years and moving soon to much smaller place so need to down size my stuff. The Kit includes all the ribs, transom, bow stem, and a box of hardware. I also have the instructions but will need to find them. I can be contacted directly at:
270 East Mayes St.
We should probably be arrested for doing this but we did it:
