My Hyde has been sold. Delivered to Red's today where Scott and I had a nice test row down the Yak and then Scott took delivery of his "new" Hyde drift boat.

Best wishes and best of luck to you Scott. Give me a call if you need someone to share rowing duties. I would be more than willing.

And thanks to you other guys that expressed interest.

Very nice boat. I'm from deep south Texas and our skiffs look nothing like that. They are as flats as you can get them on the bottom, no sides and no bow. Think of a floating piece of plywood.

Can I ask why drift boats have such a dramatic upturned bow like this? What is the purpose?

A piece of plywood doesn't fair well with large rapids or the occasional rock.
