Drift Boat

Matt,
Here are some pics of a drift boat I built from scratch couple of years ago from a picture I saw in a magazine. It was a good river boat, turned on a dime!. If I did it again I would put a little less arch in her and lower the seats a bit. There is a market for this kind of boat.

This how it was done.

The build wasn't as neat as I could do now, but it's still a decent boat and an easy build.

I helped a company design a driftboat for kit sales. The deal was they were to prominently display my name on their site and give credit for the design help.

They don't appear to be living up to their end of the bargain so let me see if they'll change that or perhaps I'll start offering driftboat plans.
