    That is a great looking bunch of boats! I would love to take mine down there sometime! I just got done repairing a couple dings in the bottom, fresh varnish on the outside and teak oil on the inside-looks almost like new! Rick

    Those are beauties. My only hope is that some of those get used more then they get stored. Know a customer on my route who's built a canoe and a driftboat out of wood and he won't put them in water because they're too "pretty" and he put too much work into them. Like getting a high end sports car and just putting it on blocks just to look at it. Gotta drive her once in awhile.

    Hmmmmmm, may have to get another wood boat. Don't think I want to build another, maybe I'll find one I can do repair work too. Hmmmmm.
