TJ, we never formally got to meet each other but I appreciated the ride to the river on Saturday morning. Your boat looks great, I never realized that it was the one that had been damaged and shown here on WBP pages. I enjoyed meeting you and Miss Kelley infromally and hope to see you again and hopefully float together again.

I hear you... if we started fishing, I'd be drifting right by Randy's place and keep on going to a couple of "holes" down the river... The "guides" are going to do a little fishing upstream from our put-in and then join us for the parade - straight float to Eagle Rock... the guides will then buy their clients lunch, let them check out everything at the boat festival and then continue down river for some more "serious" fishing... (they sold that as a fund raising "package")...

Great!! No obstacles - pretty straightforward float & we'll be following 4 or 5 guides with clients, so they'll be picking safe, dry, lines...
Look forward to meeting you and your boat.

Perhaps some of that fish "schtank" will give our boats a little more luck out there... come as you are party and hope it rubs off on us!!

Snow on melt water on ice is the worst - it cost me my 49 Ford two door convertible that had 34,000 actual miles. It was in Haines Alaska - just reminded me so much of your description. One minute things are great and the next your laying face down in the snow wondering how you could have F%#@* up your baby so completely. Anyway, glad yours was fixable - very nice job.

Thanks for the response!!!
How did you apply the primer and interlux? Which interlux did you use because your boat looks SHARP. You also wet sanded.....what was your process?? Thanks for the help!!!

that IS a hell of a story....boat looks good though. what kind of paint did you use? sprayed?

Hey TJ,
I am refinishing a 16' Tatman and I hope mine looks as good as yours when I am finished. How any coats of primer and final coat did you use? Did you use interlux? Looks like a hell of a project and nicely done!

This is a pretty cool site. There are a few other wood driftboat forums, but they seem to be geared more towards strictly the building part.

This place is more social, hell I dont even get greif around here when I post pics of my other boats that aren't wood!

Have fun,

Mike

Sorry to hear about the boat and truck, but what a great story.

I travel on ice/snow covered roads all winter long to steelhead fish on the Rogue from where I live and have had more close calls then I would like to think about.

Welcome to the forum btw.

Mike
