Managed to escape the southeast, no worse for wear, and have landed back in Salt Lake City to start a new job with the Utah Division of Wildlife, and pick up where I left off building boats, floating rivers, and catching fish. Went down to the workshop today to check up on Larry and see how his new 16 footer is coming along, and it is awesome. It's a one-off design, with a plascore bottom and is going to make on hell of a fishing boat. Can't wait to get it out on the crystal waters of the Green. We are also scheming on a few new projects, including a pram, a jet sled/power drifter, and an all-plascore whitewater dory. I am thrilled to be back on the right (as in correct) side of the continental divide, and excited to dive back into building and rowing boats. I am hoping to start posting on here a lot more frequently, so check back often.....and I am thrilled to have heard from a lot of people interested in wooden boats who have come across this page from one source or another, so feel free to drop me a line - I am always happy to talk boats and floats.
