    16' toon 25" tubes. Here are some shots. I dont have many of my toon, i keep upgrading it and deleting the old pics.
    I just added a front deck, it replaced the plywood prototype i used last year. The front deck is now home to my big cooler, rod holders etc.
    I have a Humminbird depth finder, an electric motor, 15 hp gas motor, 4 rod holders, dry storage, an extra full size oar on board, 3 seats and the mandatory beverage holders. I like to fish lakes, float small rivers for trout and fish big rivers for salmon.
    Photos:
    Green river with friend fighting fish, first season.
    Scooter mount.
    Chehalis with the Cohos on old plywood deck, second season.
    Some recent shots at the house.

    Damn! Nice work. I especially like the scooter capability . . . self-supporting shuttle capability. Very well done. Looks like it's fishy, too.

    And if you do, keep it in the garage and put an extra coat of 303 on it for a while.

    Here are some shots from fishing the other day. My friend should have been smiling, but his sunburn had the best of him.


    Thanks for all the kind words about the homemade toon.

    Very well executed indeed. And I immediately picked up on the fact that it was big enough to get laid in should the fishing turn sour.;)
