I have been trying to convince my wife we "need" a drift boat for the last 5 years. Of that time (the last 3 years) were spent just enjoying the sport of the conversation, always anticipating the answer to be "no". Not sure what I said, specifically, to produce a "yes" but something worked and I bought that drift boat last weekend and immediately floated it down the Yakima. Clackacraft 16' FFB / Trailer / Have truck. The advice I received after purchasing the boat was priceless but I a'm still looking for any advice I can get on; rowing, setting up to drift a run, how many trips on Class 1 water should I make before moving up to more difficult water etc. I'm pretty good with a rod but not so good on the oars. Plan is to use the Yakima as my training ground, during our maiden voyage I felt like the Keystone Cops floating down the river, would like to change that. Thanks in advance to any advice we can get.
