    Jeez, Freestone - I want your . . . . GARAGE! :thumb:

    Actually, I'm probably better off w/o it. I'd end up having to buy more boats.

    Both Beautiful. That otter looks awesome. I want a raft like that to float/fish and also take my young family down some scenic floats on mellow rivers. Just getting into the river thing and amazed about the beauty you get to see, not to mention fishing opps.

    Two toons (Outcast PAC 800 and a cheap one), two yaks (Wilderness Systems Tarpon 160i and a Necky Eliza (wife's yak)), two sailboards. It is hard to fish from a sailboard.

    Milt and Freestone got the stuff for sure.

    The one on the left is gone, and DB 4 has been redone for a rear swivel seat arrangment. Sometimes it gets crowded, but it's all good.

    Ross-I checked out your web site and you are making some very cool boats! I'm thinking of doing some modifications to mine-I would like the floor to be level for the front and rear casters. Maybe place the rowers seat on a box for storage and walk-around ability. The swivel seats look like a good idea as well. Rick

    Holy Crap you're not kidding! I once loved a small boat so much that I bought it back from the person I had sold it too after 3 years and then drove it from Key Largo to Bellingham. Then sold it and still go back and visit occasionally.

    My first boat was a sea snark (stryofoam sailboat) salvaged from the dump, split almost in half. Glassed it together, screwed a transom on it and bolted the 2hp Evinrude egg beater on it to fish the canals of Miami. A motorized surfboard. Guess I've owned about 15 boats over the past 35 years not including other people's boats I've driven extensively (sometimes onto rocks but that's another story).

    It's all fun (almost).

    I must need a support group...

    Decided my 12' aluminum needs to get up on a plane, just needed a little more power (was running 5hp 2-stroke merc, great but...) so I went out and bought a new 8hp 4-stroke merc today. I got pushed over the edge and decided I would never feel good about some craigslist motor or whatnot. Man, I had starting issues with a 9.9 i tried out on craigslist - fortunately I'd written in a 7-day clause on the bill of sale he was cool about, and returned it that night. It hurt my damned back trying so many times...)

    At least now I'll be up on a plane no sweat and it's not too heavy. Eliminated that lurking fear of "how good is this motor?" in the back of my mind while I'm 5 miles down a beach. But seriously, I need help I think :eek:

    Edit: oh, yeah, I'm not unemployed any more... start work next week. Y'all will have to find someone else to post vicarious mid-week reports bawling:
