Progress Report 1.25.09

Well guys, it is Sunday, and I was able to log some hours on the boat build this weekend.

Attached the stem, transom, and installed all the frames.

Needless to say, it is cool to see the boat take shape.

Can't wait to get the chine log in and get the bottom on.

Here are a few pics of the progress.

Thanks for looking!…

South Coast Rivers

I am still working to learn the rivers on the south coast and have drifted the Elk four times in the last week and a half until it became too low to enjoy. This last Saturday my two kids joined me in my first run on the South Fork of the Coquille just south east of Myrtle Point, OR. It seems the river gets early steelhead and is fairly easy to navigate. Well, mostly true until about two miles into the drift, due to low water conditions, the channel narrows substantially and is mostly covered by… Continue

Progress Report 1.18.09

Well it's time for another progress report.

Here are some images of the boat progress from the past couple days.

Started building the ever-important rowers seat... dry fit everything and drilled the holes for the rope pipes. Made sure everything was looking square. I will probably return to this later and glue it up - then get is rough sanded.

Then I moved my operation to the garage. Which I managed to keep comfortably warm all day : )

I was preoccupied with… Continue

Friends mean what in wordpress

I'm just curious what it means to "make so and so a friend" in wordpress.
For Facebook (which I don't belong to) I think it means "friends can see my
profile information, but the public cannot."

But in wordpress it seems like I can see the profile info for all members
anyway. So what does "friends" mean.......just tryna figger it all out.

Tree at Marten Rapids

For the last year there has been a tree, with root wad, hung up at the top of Marten Rapids on the McKenzie. Marten was passable for good oarsmen, but tough in low water. It is gone. I'll float this weekend or next week from my place to the dam to report if it is a hazard. My guess is it is hung above High Banks.

Whitehorse Salvage

Sorry for the long delay getting this out, but here goes. This boat was salvaged by Mark Angel with assistance from myself and two others. I regularly assist Mark on these salvages and learn a lot from him every time. We all are lucky to have Mark because no-one else out there that I am aware of is able, knowledgeable, and willing to recover these boats and bodies in the whitewater environment. As for this particular salvage, the only driftboat we were called out for on the Deschutes in 2008,… Continue
