    Ross, just do a lost title app. If it hasn't been reported stolen, you get your title. I think they charge twenty bucks for the L.T.A.

    Like Abe Lincoln's axe: three new heads and seven new handles, but by golly, that is the axe that old Abe himself used. ;)

    Ross you put a couple of tears to an old man's eyes!! My dad and I used to fish out of an old wooden sled almost like the one you are refurbishing (even the same color green!) on the Kenai river in Alaska in the late 50's & early 60's. Great work and kudo's for taking a classic and giving her new life. :) FF

    Ross,

    It was great to meet you, and to get to meet a piece of steelheading history. I hope one day I get to fish out of that sled. Enjoy the oars, and let me know if there is anything I can do.

    John

    This is one of the best threads I have seen on any forum, anywhere. It is no accident that this boat ended up in your care, sir. Wonder how many fish have been hauled over the gunwales of that sled over the years.

    Great work! I would have epoxied the stuff down instead of 5200'ed them. 5200 flexes more and even though the epoxy probably flexes enough (i've heard it's more flexible than i would have thought) - i would have been worried.

    that looks AWESOME. love it.
